Topic: Purpose of using thumbnails
I have the required options set in the config in order to create thumbnails when I upload an image. I've kept the config details pretty much as they were specified in config.php
$mcImageManagerConfig['thumbnail.gd.enabled'] = true; $mcImageManagerConfig['thumbnail.gd.auto_generate'] = true; $mcImageManagerConfig['thumbnail.gd.folder'] = "mcith"; $mcImageManagerConfig['thumbnail.gd.prefix'] = "mcith_"; $mcImageManagerConfig['upload.create_thumbnail'] = true;
I can see the thumbnail image created (eg mcith_myimage.jpg) in the mcith folder, however I'm not sure where this thumbnail image is actually used. I'm assuming that the newly created thumbnail image (mcith_myimage.jpg) is used in the main image manager screen (that shows the preview of the images for the currently selected directory) rather than create the thumbnail image on the fly from the image (myimage.jpg) that was uploaded.
