    This feature is not consistent. Some time it shows cross image. If we have rendition value as 8 with some pixel, it will not work after some day. Then if we change rendition query with other than 8 it is working.

    Also able to find the image in BLOB cache folder. Not sure what are we missing.

    Please help us..
