I've uploaded 3 images in admin thumbnail, small image and base image. None of the images I've uploaded is 400x400. images here in the grid

I need the small-image to be cached at 155x155

Why are my images being cached at 400x400 ?

How can I stop the cache setting to 400x400 ?

It slows down my page speed so much, please help.

Go to the admin panel -> System -> Configuration -> ADVANCED -> Developer -> Debug -> Template Path Hints and select Yes (before this you have to change Current Configuration Scope to your website). Don't forget to fill in your IP in Developer Client Restrictions. After this refresh your cache. Then open your product list and see which template is used (most probably it's something like this: template/catalog/product/list.phtml). In this file search for resize (most probably it will be resize(400)) and change it to resize(155).


i tried the template path hints but no path given, no template path

I found this

<?php // Product Image ?>
            <a href="<?php echo $_product->getProductUrl() ?>" title="<?php echo $this->stripTags($this->getImageLabel($_product, 'small_image'), null, true) ?>" class="product-image"><img src="<?php echo $this->helper('catalog/image')->init($_product, 'small_image')->resize(155); ?>" width="155" height="155" alt="<?php echo $this->stripTags($this->getImageLabel($_product, 'small_image'), null, true) ?>" /></a>

as you can see the image is already set to resize 155

any other ideas would be much appreicated.
