Hugo 0.56.1 and Image Resize

My Hugo bases website makes use of the Image .Resize and .Fit Operations to generated different sized images for the article covers and gallery thumbnails.

This works using Hugo 0.55.6 but fails with 0.56.1

Hugo reports the .ResourceType as “image”, therefore I would expect Hugo to be able to resize as expected.

Do you get an error?

Possibly related to what @brunoamaral experienced

One question: What extension do you use for your images: *.jpg or *.JPG or *.JPEG?

I say this because we made a change in the way we do MIME resolution. I have a nagging feeling that it is identified as an image named image.JPG, but it fails to resolve the converter (because that use the filename’s extension).

I will create an issue about this and figure out a proper fix, but in the meantime the workaround is to make sure that your images are named sunset.jpg, logo.png (e.g. lower case extensions).

I’ve mostly used .jpg Images but there is one .JPG and one .jpeg image in my list of article cover images.

There is an error message displayed as Hugo stops processing the templates.

I have fixed the upper case issue in master, will release 0.56.2 later today.

BTW: it would make debugging issues much easier, if there is some chance to “print” into the generators output. I had some problems with Hugo not able to proceed in generating the templates so there was no chance to have a look Ito the generated HTML.

I just created a new hugo installation and this problem is obviously solved in 0.56.2.
