Saleor uses the
VersatileImageField replacement for Django’s ImageField. For performance reasons, in non-debug mode, thumbnails are pre-generated by the worker’s task, then fired after saving the instance.
Accessing a missing image will result in 404 error.
In debug mode, thumbnails are generated on demand.
Generating products thumbnails manually
Create missing thumbnails for all ProductImage instances:
python manage.py create_thumbnails
Image renditions are not deleted automatically with the image instance, nor is the main image.
