How to make this plugin stop generating extra images? (4 posts)

    I have an image. Lets say its pot.jpg
    In my uploads folder i see

    pot.jpg 166x166
    pot.jpg 300x300
    pot.jpg 700x700

    etc. I prefer not to have all this unnecessary images filling up my disk space. I initially thought it only takes the first image of a post and creates a thumbnail. Not duplicates in different sizes.
    All i want is a simple 166x166 thumbnail. Not 1 petabytes of images i don't use. Anyone know of a way to stop this?

    Turns out its a wordpress thumbnail feature that automatically generates the additional size images, which you may not need. I had to use a new function to disable that.

    Can you tell me how you did that? What function did you use? Thanks

    This info should be helpful to you:



    I believe the following should stop thumbnails from being created. If you're wanting to remove some then and unset the $size[{size}]. Following sizes are there "thumbnail","medium","large","post-thumbnail".

    function stop_thumbs($sizes){
    return array();

    or this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/additional-image-sizes-zui/
