I am using the latest 1.x of Orchard. Any page that has an image being resized into a thumbnail causes severe load times in the region of 1m 40s up to 2m 40s (presumably based on the number of images). Is anyone aware of a solution to this?

I have a multi-tenant site. I have deactivated the Azure CDN and I can see the blobs for the thumbnail images being created in _Profiles. If the image is not being resized then the page loads fine so it seems that it is the resizing of the image or the saving of the image that is causing this issue.

I'm fairly new to Orchard so any tips on how to pin point this would be appreciated.
