• When I tried to use this on my blog (which has been running since 2001, and has many thousands of entries), it failed miserably.

    For many years, I kept images on a different server I run, and linked to them from my blog. I finally decided to migrate all the images to my blog. Things seemed to go well at first, until the plugin hit a few hundred images, at which point my VPS crashed hard.

    The plugin seems only meant for tiny blogs with maybe a dozen images or so. There’s no rate limiting, no provision for heavy load, no way it can handle more than a small handful of images.

    Also, it wants to resize images, for some reason. If oyur goal is to end up with a blog exactly the same as it was before, but with the images local instead of remote, it should just…bring in the remote images, not resize them.
