Hi Craig, The import script is stopping on importing when the "resized picture dimension" is smaller than the images I am importing.

I have 33 cars, and the images are 720x480. The resize field was set at 500.

It deletes the car stock and says it will import then the browser finishes (no green progress bar.)

When I set the resize to 750 - it works ok. I am happy with leaving it like that, but thought you ought to know - I guess it might be my PHP GD library version? Its pretty old.

Thanks SnizBit.

The PHP resize is processor and time intensive. If you're uploading and resizing a number of pictures, the your server might assume a timeout and stop the page. It's not ideal and we're hoping to address it.

If your images are the correct size before you import, the process will be almost instantaneous. I can certainly recommend XnView - it's free and can easily resize a batch of images before you upload them.
