Reprocess images in the Gallery app

I just added an additional size in image.html and was hoping that re-saving a gallery photo would process the new size. However, this doesn't seem to happen.

I can successfully reprocess by deleting/re-uploading the image.

Am I missing something? Or is this a limitation with the Gallery app?

Unfortunately that's a limitation of the Gallery app.

OK good to know! I can stop wondering now :-)

This would be handy though, especially as sometimes devs can make wrong decisions about sizes, or re-using images in a different context prompts new sizes needed (which just happened to me). I notice that perch keeps the original image in resources anyway so I'm guessing it's possible to program. Maybe a similar UI to the "republish" button in Pages?

Yes, it would be useful. The Gallery app is very old.
