[ZPD-10403] - Image Settings & Image Generation Changes


Admin users can now manage the Default Image and Image Resize settings for all stores globally. Also, the following enhancements related to image generation are introduced:

  • Images uploaded to the DAM from anywhere in the application will automatically get generated in the required sizes so that admin users do not have to manually generate the images every time a new image is uploaded.

  • A button to generate an image in the defined sizes is added on the Edit Media screen so that in case image generation fails, admin users can edit the media file and can generate the image from there.

  • Whenever images are generated manually, only the images whose required image sizes are not generated will get generated.

  • The image size generation process will generate only those images whose required sizes are not available.
