But non the less, 5-Stars for clean, errorless code, works without conflict! [ For any future user seeing this, on Image Sizes Page, Toggle ON (blue light) for thumbnails you do NOT want regenerated. ]

Hi buddy, at first I installed another plugin because there are a few thousand active installations, but since it didn’t do what I wanted, I installed your plugin and tadaaa, I could see all the resizes of the theme woocoomerce etc, in the other plugin they were not visible. I wish you continued work and success, I want to give you some advice, if you take it into consideration, you will make your users more satisfied with the frontend. Combine the Image sizes | Image Quality | Threshold & EXIF menus so that you can navigate from a single screen instead of separate pages Image sizes > Image Thumbnails > In the Settings section, it would be better if you add 150×150 scaling in parentheses next to Thumbnail, Medium, Large. In Image sizes > Image Thumbnnails > Settings we can activate and deactivate the buttons, but it is not clear what function this does, you need to add a note in the same window (activate the buttons to block the sizes you want to prevent from loading).
