Where can I define the size of the product image cache?

Our product-image in product image cache now automatically will be scaled down from 1900 pixels to 600 pixels. But I want to keep the original size on product page, because details are important for us.

  • just make sure you have uploaded original image, if so check its size that saved in catalog/product/firstletter/secondletter/ directory. Dec 17, 2014 at 13:21

By default Magento shouldn't resize the zoomed in image on the product detail page, so I'm guessing you are using a default theme so look for a file that replaces the standard Magento app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/view/media.phtml file.

There you should have some code that looks like this:

$this->helper('catalog/image')->init($_product, 'image')->resize(600);

Just remove the resize method


Check your product image size in directory media/catalog/product/firstcharacterofimagename/secondcharacterofimagename/ for file imagename.

Then compare the size with the image showing in frontend, if both are not same then check your theme/template/catalog/product/view/media.phtml file for resize() function whether any resizing is applied or not.
