This plugin resizes uploaded images to a given width.
The plugin affects the uploaded image while it is uploaded. Straight after it is uploaded, it it resized physically to the given width. There is no original image left, nor made a backup. Also EXIF infor- mation is lost.
A lot of WordPress users or developers who use WordPress as a CMS and want to configurate it for easy use, would like to have an option to resize uploaded images. Some images come straight from digital cameras and exceed 4000 pixels in width. So it would be nice to reduce that to the max width you use inside your WordPress theme.
If you want to keep control about perfect sharp and resized images, you better use photo editing tools on your computer, not a script like this.
The plugin uses a class originally from Jacob Wyke (www.redvodkajelly.com).
