OTOH, hardly worth the effort for a single file, but anyone that uses GIMP probably handles lots and lots of images.
This will reduce the storage size of most jpg files 10x-20x without much change in the appearance and ZERO change to the resolution.
The attached image explains it all..need to know how to clear the cache that is making this happen.
Choosing any other subfolder makes it behave correctly.
Definitely use the web interface at change the settings. I'll just try and find the movie poster online, and drag & drop it into Plex Media Manager. So I rescaled the image using GIMP 2.8 to 185X278, saved it to my own personal folder .plexmediaposters, and switched the poster out on the web app. I'll just try and find the movie poster online, and drag & drop it into Plex Media Manager.

Use is ./*jpg and all the current files which match the pattern (it is regex) will be run through it.
These particular images were originally imported with incorrect EXIF information.
That EXIF information has since been changed but MBServer does not recognize that it has been changed.
Sorry if this is a repost, but I haven't been able to find an answer anywhere.... For example, all of my "sort name" metadata in my television folder is missing key episode information: 'Adventure Time - S01E20 - Freak City.mp4' is labeled under sort name '001-Freak City' (missing episode info) but a quick manual refresh gets it correctly to '001-0020 - Freak City' I save it and all is good. I have deleted all files and also any files and used the scheduled task to read the library all to no avail. Just do refreshes from the editing area that's all you need to do.
All I need is a simple explanation of how to refresh my entire database in one go (if possible), and whether this can be achieved by a simple restart, an option in the menu, or by deleting a cache folder? Except, I really don't want to do this for EVERY SINGLE EPISODE, because that would be mad. We really do need a "Clear cache" function from the dashboard but for now, find the data directory under your server folder and delete the and files. Okay, Luke I have a similar problem and I've tried several refreshes and it doesn't work. I have my Movies, Videos, Music and Photos setup in server to share out to Classic clients. I had some original photos that had bogus "Date Taken" information that was set well out into the future (like year 2022).
Where does Server store this metadata to make the decision about "what is the most recent files" or the most recently watched or unwatched? Cleaned EXIF data with a file cleaner and changed the file name so that date created is a more recent date but the date I inserted after the EXIF clean does not match the one showing in MBServer/Classic. The metadata of the files show March 2014 for created and Dec 2002 for date taken as that is when I renamed the files, cleaned the EXIF and reapplied the correct date taken through a metadata manager.
MBServer/Classic is ignoring that and still using old data or maybe an old image cache somewhere that has been superseded. If that's so then there is no way we can be pulling any old information as it wouldn't be anywhere since the name has changed.
But I have all photos in sub-folders ID'd by year and all photos in that folder are file named with the date taken in the file name.
