[resolved] How does WP image resizement works ? Can we overwrite this ? (5 posts)

    I have notice that inside my wp-content/Upload folder, WP puts the uplaoded images there. WP creates 3 new images plus the original image (if the original is bigger than the Large dimension, of course). So this = 4 images total.

    But is their a way to have my WP not doing this ? Or doing it in a different way ?

    I think it is filling up my storage for nothing. Before (and from now one) I am using Photoshop, resize, save for web... then upload via a FTP sotfware... and then find it with "Add a media from library" or direct url link. SO I just have 1 file online and not 4. But hey, it does take longer to do !

    Any help or hints ??

    Try setting the 3 images sizes much larger than you might upload in Settings/Media.

    you mean unless having like
    150px - 300px - 600 px
    I should save my image images in photoshop at maybe 600px, then I should put in WP like
    610px - 610px - 610px
    so my "origanl uplaoded image" will always be smaller so no resizing will be done by the system ??

    Yes - just as long as you don't upload an image bigger than 600px, you should be fine. No extra copies should be made.
