Stop Generating Unnecessary Thumbnails (Formerly Stop Generating Image Sizes)

Stop WordPress from generating unnecessary thumbnails while uploading an image!

Big Update

Since version 3.0 or higher, you can now regenerate thumbnails of your existing images!

When you upload an image using Media Uploader, WordPress generates multiple copies/thumbnails of that image. By default, WordPress generates 4 thumbnails-

  • Thumbnail
  • Medium
  • Medium-large
  • Large

But along with this, theme and plugin developers can register their own thumbnails. Although they may be on purpose, but sometimes they remain unused.

Think about it, unnecessary additional images are eating up your server space and slowing down your site!

Sounds like a problem? What is the solution then?
This is where our plugin comes into the picture. Just install the plugin and choose which of the imaze sizes you want to prevent from generating.

  • Works with any plugin and theme.
  • WooCommerce compatible.
  • Multisite compatible.
  • Super easy to install and configure.
  • It’s free and always will be.
  1. Upload image-sizes to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
  3. Go to Image Sizes menu from the left and choose which of the sizes you want to prevent from generating.

Does it work with multisite?

Yes, it’s fully compatible with WordPress multisite installations

Does it work with WooCommerce?

Yes, it doen.

What about my old thumbnails?

From version 3.0 and higher, you can now regenerate thumbnails of your existing images. Just go to the Regenerate Thumbnails tab and click on the Regenerate button.

My question is not answered here.
