Is there a way to make Perch Gallery re-process all images?

I have a site using Perch Gallery and changed the PHP image library config file.

Is there a way to have Gallery re-process all the images? (knowing that this will be highly intensive on the server)

Or is it only possible to do so be manually re-uploading all the images? (which would be a no-go in this case because it's hundreds of images in dozens of galleries)

Thanks!

I don't think there's a way to do that, no.

I tried temporarily deleting a few images to see if Gallery would regenerate them, but no luck there.

I'm guessing my best recourse (other than just leaving it alone entirely) might be to create an .htaccess file in /perch/resources that will use the Perch API to generate any unfound images, then removing the images I want to be regenerated. Obviously unsupported.

Don't think I'll try this for a while (or maybe ever), just leaving a trail in case someone comes across this.
