After your images have been uploaded, our system then needs to process and prepare them to be viewed on your storefront. This process involves creating many different image sizes and storing multiple copies of the images across multiple different image servers.
The preparation of your images generally takes just a couple of minutes to complete, but it can take much longer than this if there is a large number of images ahead of yours in the processing queue. In some cases of a heavy load, the processing of your images can take upwards of 30-45 minutes. In these situations the best thing to do is to simply be patient and allow the process to complete.
You can view the progress of the processing of your images through the Photos » Galleries page. At the top of the galleries page you will see a blue banner showing the number of your images that are currently in the processing queue.
Once the processing count gets to zero, the note will disappear and your images will have been fully processed.
Also, if you see the image below in your galleries, that's an indication that the system is still processing those files.
