This is more feedback than support request, but here it is.
I’ve setup NLM for the first time on one of my sites recently. I followed everything, read the requirements and limitations, setup, all of it.
After a while, here I was : time to push my first image to Large Media via LFS !
So I add an image, commit, push, it works. Netlify deploys it with success
Then I go to [id].netlify.app/images/.png and i get a 404. I check everything : the pointer file is on github, the url should be good. I clone the repo, git lfs pull, the image is here. But on the netlify dashboard’s Large media tab, it’s not. I wait a bit, maybe the servers are doing some magic on initialization and first time takes some time. I receive the “you started using NLM” email. it should work now!
Why doesn’t it work? Because I did not put the image inside the
public folder, which is the only one deployed, per my deploy settings. I looked inside the docs, and nowhere it is said “warning: your files will only be available if you put them in your deploy folder, usually /public”. That was a frustrating noob issue I had, it could have easily been avoided with the right documentation.
I’m not sure which page should give us this warning. Either the “Usage and billing” page (but it’s more about billing than usage), or the “Transform images” page.
