SharePoint 2013 enable blob cache for Image Renditions

On SharePoint 2013 you may encounter the following error message: "The blob cache is not enabled in this web application. Image renditions will not be generated until the blob cache is enabled. For information on turning on the blob cache, please review the product documentation." when viewing the available image rendition sizes.

The blob cache is simply a disk based caching method which may be utilised on images, videos and other files.

To enable the blob cache on your SharePoint server simply open the web.config file, locate the BlobCache tag (using the find dialog) and change the "enabled" attribute from "false" to "true". You may then need to perform an iisreset for the changes to take affect.
