    creating media with MediaService -> how to generate thumbnails?


    When I upload media of type "Image" through the backoffice, it creates file.jpg, file_big-thumb.jpg, and file-thumb.jpg

    However, when I create media files programatically, I'm not getting it to generate thumbnails during this process.

    From a previous post I tried the suggestion of saving an empty media object, and then subsequently calling SetValue, but that doesn't work either.

    private int CreateMedia(Stream file, string fileName)
        var parentId = 2685; // image folder
        var service = Services.MediaService;
        var media = service.CreateMedia(fileName, parentId, "Image");
        media.SetValue("umbracoFile", fileName, file);
        return media.Id;

    I know I can use a URL postfix (?width=500&mode=max&animationprocessmode=first) to invoke the ImageProcessor, but wondering why it's not working with MediaService.

    Any insights would be appreciated. Thanks!
