Support » Plugin: Imsanity » Does it automatically delete the hi-res uploaded file?

  • Hi,

    Since the plugin resizes the uploaded file, does it automatically delete the original hi-res file? OR does it just replace it so that hi-res don’t occupy the space unnecessarily?

    For new uploads, the hi-res original is never created, because Imsanity resizes the image prior to WordPress doing anything with the image.

    For existing uploads resized with the batch/bulk tool, Imsanity does not currently alter any hi-res originals that WordPress might have stored.

    It appears that EWWW has the option to resize the hi-res originals that WP has stored after scaling… any chance you will bring that feature to Imsanity?

    Lets make sure we are clear on terminology here: EWWW IO has the option to compress the hi-res originals…
    Imsanity is not a compression plugin, it is a scaling/resizing plugin. I do have plans in the future to allow folks to (bulk) delete those hi-res originals. But compressing them would be defeating one of the main reasons WP keeps them in the first place: to allow better thumb regeneration from hi-res originals.

    Bulk delete of hi-res originals is something we’d love in Imsanity. Following!

    feel free to chime in or follow the issue on GitHub also: https://github.com/nosilver4u/imsanity/issues/13

    Is there any progress in creating an option to delete the “original_image”? I don’t see any updates on GitHub either.

    If there isn’t any progress on Github, then there isn’t anything new 🙂 But I do still plan to add such an option (along with a way to bulk remove them)!

    It’s nice to have plans, but will it be a matter of days, weeks, months or years?

    I work on this in my spare time, so I cannot give you a definitive time frame beyond saying it will happen this year.

    Thanks for your efforts @nosilver4u !! And that is great news about the timing being hopefully this year. Super!
