    Just tested this out and have to say I really like this plugin!
    I will use it on an fresh installation, is it possible to disable the old/original link from still being accessible, because of SEO reasons, now it can be possible google will index the image 2 times right?
    I can understand the benefits on an already indexed website.
    But on an fresh install it looks to me as an SEO downside or am I mistaking?

    I don’t think it is a problem, unless your business is only based on images and you’re traffic commes from Google images search.
    Google will parse your page and follow the links on it, you will then have no 404 pages because the image url would have been replaced in the html content.
    Then it will not be indexed two times.

    More generally, the main thing you have to check is that you don’t have incoming links to a non existing page or image.
    You can use a tool like WP Meta SEO (https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-meta-seo/) it’s check 404 links.
