Image Resizer used to work on all images on a page now only works on some

I have a products page and had all full size and thumbnail images processed by the ImageResizer successfully. When I checked the page recently I saw that only the thumbnails are being cached but not the larger images which are now being loaded from their primary location (media/images/products/img.jpg) instead of the cached location (image_cache/media/images/products/stretch/etc...)

I went so far as to delete all cached folders from the server and confirmed that only the thumbnails (cropped) are being created. I also deleted the image instance for the non-working images and reapplying it to no avail.

Any ideas as to what could have gone wrong on a single page to alter an instance of the image resizer?

Thanks!

on the page you sent a link to, it is the large image that is not being resized as far as I can tell.

The original is 400 x 527

in image resizer, you have the option "Resize Images smaller than specified dimensions" unchecked. The image tag is set to 400px width.

since it is already 400 pixels wide, it does not need resizing. Only if you check the "Resize Images smaller than specified dimensions" option would the image be resized.

Wow - I did not even consider that! Thanks for the heads up. But I thought it used to process the image anyway and changed the filesize - so a 150K image would then be served as a 15K image. Would checking that box affect that?

While in that page - do you see how the cached images are pointing to a directory with two slashes (//) after the image_cache folder? The images still appear but not sure why two slashes?!

the file size has nothing to do with it, it is triggered by the original image dimensions, since that box is not checked, the image is not resized. unchecking the option to resize images that are smaller causes images that are smaller and the same size to be left alone.

the extra slash is not an issue.

I really appreciate the info and helping me figure this out. It was working before because site had image at 350px but their original was 400px. I changed layout to accomodate a 400px image and was surprised that it stopped caching the images.

Your explanation in this context is clearer to me than the documentation.

Thanks again - Thread closed
