I am working with the imagecache module and have it up and running nicely but I have no idea what the "Flush Preset Images" function is for. Is it going to delete the files? Anyone have a good idea of the purpose flushing. Thanks!

It flushes the modified images from the cache. It's useful if you change your presets or image files in some way, and you don't want people seeing the old images anymore.

i have a thumbnail option ...

now some images become smaller...however some larger files dont...dunno why..

hence the size is absurd at time :(

1.what can i do about this..is it becoz someone tried to upload from IE..or becoz files were large..is there a way to impose size on file upload for imagefield.

2. after flushing the preset images..i lost the old pics...from the files..will new ones get created..if so when..and how..anything i need to do for this..

So does it delete the images?

My gallery of thumbnails was displaying incorrectly, so I flushed them. They were all automatically recreated, and when I reloaded the gallery, everything was perfect.

Hope that helps. :)
