 Hi @simonrcodrington,

 Thanks for the suggestion. I think it would be really helpful to add an
 admin warning to the media options page if the server doesn't meet the
 requirements necessary to create thumbnails. One thing that should be
 considered, though, is that some systems intentionally turn off the
 ability to generate thumbnails because that process is offloaded to a
 separate system or service, so we would want to either make this notice
 dismissible, or think of ways to detect cases where this has been
 officially disabled so we don't annoy site users with unnecessary alerts.
