Images double ( in uploads folder and next gen gallery folder ) (3 posts)

    In order to not exceed my writing limite on my domain, I would like some advice on how to remove images from the next gen folder or the uploads folder. Now I see WP stores them double, once in the next gen gallery folder images and once in the uploads folder.

    Is there a way I can reduce these double images?
    If I remove it from the uploads folder, the images disapear from the gallery. can I safely remove the double images out of the next gen folder or do they always need to be kept double on a domain I wonder?

    Thx for the help!

    If you include in NextGen an already uploaded image from the WP Media Library, the result will be as noted. One can directly upload to NextGen.

    If you are using NextGen to display the images on a Page or Post, then NextGen will use the images located in the NextGen folder(s)...If you have Pages or Posts using the included WP Gallery functions, you will need to look at which ones do...that said, you can check in the Media Library if images are not attached to a page or post (not used in the site).

    Run a few tests to sort it out...Also consider optimizing images prior to upload which will reduce your used space.
