  • When working with images, all of them are cropped before uploading. I don’t really need WordPress to create the Thumbnail, Medium and Large sizes whenever I upload an image. Is there a way to avoid this? or the only chance is to upload them by ftp instead of using the media uploader?

  • I think FTP would be the fastest way to just upload your images.

    Another workaround to turn off WordPress thumbnail generation :

    Clear the Height and Width fields for “Thumbnail size” and “Medium size” from “SettingsMedia” subpanel.

    WordPress will no longer generate thumbs and alt pictures when uploading 😉
