    Hi, just for my understanding...

    Is this the same what scripts like Timthumb and Aqua resizer are doing?
    So are those scripts also rezising the image before save it onto server?

    Kind regards,

    Willem

    Hi,

    Another question. What I would like to achieve also is when people upload an image through a form on my website (that are BIG images normally) this should be resized so my server has not to store unneccesary BIG files.

    Is that also what this plugin does?

    Kind regards,

    Willem

    Timthumb and Aqua resizer, show different sized images on the server by generating new versions of those images (server side) and caching a copy for speedier generation there after.

    Resize images before upload, resizes the images in the users browser before they are uploaded to the server. This decreases the dimensions and file size of the images making them upload much faster, taking up less space on your server.

    The plugin hooks into the media manager and WordPress upload system. So if you have images uploaded through a form changes are they won't be resized as they don't use the default media upload workflow.

    Oke, thanks for the answer! I think I will look after a solution which resizes the image after upload, but replaces the original BIG image with this smaller image, and for the rest uses the WP thumbnail, medium and large settings. Any suggestions?

    Kind regards,

    Willem

    WPThumb resizes images on the server http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-thumb/. I don't see why it can't be extended to resize and replace the fullsize image if it's too large.
