This question already has an answer here:

Aside from Defining Transforms in the template (http://buildwithcraft.com/docs/image-transforms) is there a way to go back and trigger an image transformation?

We've got a number of assets that have been uploaded to rackspace that need image an image transformation but the transformation was created after the images were uploaded.

Is there a way to kick this off?

I forgot we added a tool for this, too, under Settings->Tools->Clear Caches Tool->Asset Transform Index.


Probably administration panel -> settings -> tools -> Update Asset Indexes

    The Update Asset Indexes feature makes Craft re-index your asset sources, for example if an asset had been uploaded to the site outside of Craft (FTP etc), running this would get the file(s) showing in Craft. I believe that running this will not trigger the image transformation process for images that have already been indexed. – Jamie Wade Oct 15 '14 at 12:26
