Deleting unused jpgs

  • I’ve often wondered why WP creates three jpgs for every one that I upload and now I know why. It’s in my media settings.

    Anyway, the way I work is to upload a jpg which is he size that I want and if I want to link to a larger image then I upload the larger one and link to it.

    So it would seem that I don’t need all the additional jpgs.

    Is that correct?

    If so then what’s the best way to delete them?

    I know there are plugins but I also see in media when I go to the site that many jpgs are marked as “unattached”.

    So what do you recommend?

    It would also appear that I can remove all the sizes in my media settings, is that correct?
