How do I reprocess my product images?

This article has moved to a new home. View the updated version

Reprocessing your product images is easy, but does require some familiarity with SFTP tools.

Note that SFTP access is required to follow the steps in this how-to, and this is a somewhat advanced procedure to follow so proceed with care. You can request SFTP access to your website by filling in this form.

Step 1: Download Your Product Images

First you need to download the full-sized version of the product images. These are located via SFTP under /httpdocs/assets/full

Step 2: Configure your image settings

If you are reprocessing your images because they are too small or too big, you'll need to change your image settings in the control panel. This can be done by navigating to Setup & Tools > All settings & tools > Click on the Web Store tab from the left hand side menu and click Image Settings.

Step 3: "Drop" the images

You need to now upload the images you downloaded in step one directly into this directory: /private/www/tmp/imagedrop/full

Step 4: Run the Scheduled Task

Under Setup & Tools > All settings and tools > Click on the Processes & Scheduled Jobs tab from the left hand side navigation menu and click System Scheduled Tasks. You must run the scheduled task called Imagedrop.

When this task is complete, your images will be resized. This task may take some time if you have many large images.
