Image Editor throws exceptions in Azure

  • The following exception message is displayed in Sitecore XP on Azure while trying to resize/edit/flip/crop/rotate an existing image.
    [FileNotFoundException: D:\home\site\wwwroot\~\temp\imager.20171121t1345312083.jpg.aspx]

       System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint) +3811

    This issue occurs due to incorrect configuration in the \App_Config\Sitecore.config file. The Image Editor attempts to access an item in an invalid \tempFolder instead of \temp.
