The image resize worked only the first time with the already uploaded products, after uploading a new one the resize didn't work anymore. I tried everything, even deleting and installing the plugin again. At the actual status, it's basically an useless plugin, with all due respect. Also seems like an abandoned plugin by the devs, not worth installing it.
