It sounds like you may be experiencing an issue with your Magento store where product images are not updating properly unless you run the catalog:images:resize command.
This command is used to resize and regenerate images for products, categories, and other entities in Magento. Running this command can sometimes fix issues with images not displaying properly in your store.
However, it's not normal for product images to not update automatically when changes are made to them. If you're having this issue, there could be a few potential causes:
- Make sure that you have cleared your store's cache and refreshed your browser cache. Cached images can sometimes prevent updates from being displayed.
- Ensure that the files and directories for your images have the correct permissions. Magento may not be able to update images if it doesn't have permission to write to the directories where images are stored.
- Image size:
- If you're trying to update an image with the same filename but a different size, it's possible that Magento is not recognizing the new image. In this case, try renaming the new image or using a completely new filename.
