  • Hi,
    Is there a way to only generate and upload the selected thumbnail?
    Aside from setting the medium and large to “0” on the Settings > Media.

    Especially if I have custom thumbnails settings using the add_image_size(), it is automatically generating a thumbnail for every custom thumbnail size I have which takes up a lot of space since I have 10 custom thumbnail sizes.

    So the logic would be:
    Let’s say I have 10 custom thumbnails aside from the default thumbnail, medium, large and full size.
    – I upload an image, it automatically generates every single thumbnail I have.

    It should only generate / upload the one I have selected. So I should only see two (2) images on my uploads folder.
    1. The thumbnail I selected.
    2. The original size of the image.
