Announcing: BetterThumbs Plugin (3 posts)

    I'm proud to announce another code release: BetterThumbs WordPress Plugin (Follow the link for more details)

    The BetterThumbs WordPress Plugin creates true thumbnails for full-size images that are resized in the post editor, instead of just letting the browser scale down the original full-size image. This translates into faster load times and lower bandwidth usage.

    I built this plugin out of frustration with the way WordPress handles images that have been resized in the post editor. To be honest, I believe this functionality should be built into WordPress — it just makes more sense to create true thumbnails based on the dimensions the author wants.

    So enjoy and leave your feedback!

    uhm, how do you say?...awesome!

    thanks, ill let you know how it goes!

    EDIT: working great for me so far, and it is impressively invisible ('it just works'). this seems to be the most elegant solution to a problem i know a lot of people would like to fix. here's my vote to ingegrate this into future wp releases.

    aaron, thanks for you're hard work!
