It works - but also makes tons of unrequired thumbnails
By , for WP 3.9.1

The good news: the plugin does what it's supposed to do!

The not so good news: you end up with tons of thumbnails you'll never need, and which will be never called by your WordPress installation.

I guess this is a problem resulting from WordPress' code and the way images are stored in WP. To change themes you'll basically only need thumbnails of your "featured images" - the only ones being shown on pages or in widgets. Yet the plugin creates thumbnails of every image it finds, and this includes header images, logos, it even tries to resize your favicon!
One way to quickly fill up your storage and slow down searches for required images...

Why create masses of thumbs if only features images are required?
By , for WP 3.9.1

Basically the plugin does what it's supposed to do, so that okay.

BUT:
you end up with tons of thumbnail your WordPress installation will never need and never call upon = one way to fill up your storage...

I guess the problems with this is the WordPress code and/or how WP storage is sorted. Basically with any theme update you will only need resized thumbnails of all your featured images, as they are the ones being displayed on your front page and in widgets. But the plugin creates a number of thumbnails of every image it finds! So it includes logos, header images (both you'll never need a cropped thumbnail of!), it wants to make a thumbnail of your favicon (but thankfully fails), and so on...

Recently changed from premium Polyon to Avada theme on my new accountancy website and all my thumbnails in the sidebar and footer were odd sizes.

Running this tool fixed all my issues. THANKYOU!!!

Good plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

Plugin is very useful when you change or add new image size. It will go through all your images and resize them again from original image.

PERFECT.
By , for WP 3.9.1

I deleted my media folder, and uploaded all of the files from a backup - no URL changes or any of that mess. The images all remained linked up fine in WordPress, but the thumbnails in the media library were gone.

This plugin fixed that. Brilliant! Thank you.
