Is there a way to force SS to regenerate the thumbnails that are displayed on the right hand side when a user selects to embed an image in the content?
A client is saying that he uploaded some new versions of images (some with the same name, some with new names) and that *some* of the thumbnails had not updated to the new versions of the image.
Any idea why this might be, along with how to regenerate them?

That will remove all generated images.

Thanks for the reply, I'll give it a go and report back.

"Build task 'FlushGeneratedImagesTask' not found. "
Sorry, my fault as I forgot to mention that we are still on 2.3.4, and that class does not seem to exist in that version. It gave me an error and looking at the API docs, it does not seem to be present in the 2.3.x codebase. Unless I am missing it?
Is there a manual way that I can achieve the same effect? Do I just need to clear down all the files in the _resampled folder under the user's folder in /assets?
Do missing files in the _resampled folders get automatically regenerated as needed? ie is it always safe to delete them?
Thanks in advance.

as far as I know you can just delete the _resampled Folders. I would move it, to try it out
According to the docs http://doc.silverstripe.org/image#clearing_thumbnail_cache you can also try calling: http://www.mysite.com/images/flush
But I don't know if that (still) works.

The latter method gave me a permission denied error on my local dev copy. I think we'll try the fully manual way for now (ie copy folder and then delete contents to see if it auto-regenerates)
Many thanks for your time and assistance

OK, deleting the thumbnail images did the trick. Thanks again.
