I am new to Magento, Facing some issue with product images : Total product count : around 550
1) On Product Detail page images are not showing for some product, showing error 500 in console. (/pub/media/catalog/product/cache - Cache url : Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 ())

2) Does php bin/magento catalog:images:resize , Help's to generate the missing images in cache folder ? (Is it a good idea to run this ?)

3) What I have to do to generate new images in cache folder (/pub/media/catalog/product/cache)

Note : Also, the product images are showing correctly in backend & image files are present inside /pub/media/catalog/product/H/i. If anyone

Thanks :)

I have solved my problem i.e Magento not creating images in /pub/media/catalog/product/cache folder. I have run the following command that creates a images for all the sizes for each product. Here is the link for reference : Magento Product resize guide

Steps to follow :

    1. Remove cache folder from (/pub/media/catalog/product/)
    1. Run Command : php bin/magento catalog:images:resize
    1. Response : Product images resized successfully. ( Displays to confirm the command succeeded.)

Please check this pub/media/.htaccess file is exits or not? if not please try to undo this.

Run this commend: git checkout pub/media/.htaccess

in may case it was deleted.

Now images are showing...
