Forced Thumbnail size creating duplicate images in wploads folder (1 post)

    First of all... thank u so much for this wonderful plugin.

    If i have a look at ftp, and my uploads folder... i can see multiple images in different sizes being saved for every upload i do into the media library. the yarpp plugin contributes to one particular size of 120x120... being triggered by the "yarpp_thumbnail" handle.

    i understand we need this to get thumbnail support... but isn't it just wasting space if we create a 120x120 copy even for those images that are NOT the featured image?

    For eg: if i have uploaded 15 images in a post (and therefore into my media library)... out of these ONE OF THEM is my featured image. Now, instead of saving just ONE image as 120x120... yarpp is saving 15 extra images... all of which will never again be used too...

    so... the question is... is it possible to load up the 120x120 image size ONLY for the featured image?

    I have always found that the media handle is sort of a white elephant when it comes to wordpress installs.. and theres a lot that's left to be desired... trying to fix that issue.

    thanks, and once again... very much appreciate the wonderful work you put in to make sure the plugin works great!!
