Support » Theme: Customizr » Theme is creating multiple copies of the same image in different sizes.

    When I upload an image, the theme creates multiple copies of the same image in different sizes.

    See below for the dimensions that are created:
    800×500,
    800×444,
    768×512,
    570×350,
    528×297,
    517×235,
    510×510,
    270×250.

    * In wordpress:
    In [Settings]> [Media] I set the 3 resize options to 0x0.
    And walks changed.

    * In Theme Customization settings:
    In [Global Settings]> [Image Settings] I have disabled the option: [Improve your page speed by loading smaller images for mobile devices].

    Note:
    – I do not use the theme slide show.
    – I do not use the theme content display.
    – I also don’t use theme content display in search results and categories

    — I use ContentViews Pro for these functions, in it I select the size 510×510.

    The only size I use in ContentView Pro is 510 x 510.

    I would like to disable the creation of other size images. not to take up unnecessary space.

    * The theme should only create these images if some feature in the theme that needs images in other dimensions was activated and not create several duplicate images that have no use.

    How do I solve this?

  • Hi there,
    I see what you mean

    *The theme should only create these images if some feature in the theme that needs images in other dimensions was activated and not create several duplicate images that have no use.

    While I theoretically agree on this the reality is a little bit different and more complex. First of all, basically all the themes (and/or plugins), or at least all those I’ve seen, generate the image sizes that are “potentially” required whether or not the site owner will end up using them.

    They’re also used as “responsive” versions of the original image, to serve smaller images in small viewports (ideally mobile devices).

    Following your idea, which again is ideally perfect and I agree with you, if you don’t enable a feature, the theme doesn’t generate a certain image size. Then if you change your idea and enable that feature you would expect the correct image sizes to be displayed, but you don’t have them. So either the theme should generate them at that time (and that I’m pretty sure is plugin territory, so a wp.org theme couldn’t do that) or you should use a plugin to re-generate them.

    On the other hand, if you know what you’re doing and you’re sure you want do disable certain image sizes generation you can use a plugin.
    From a rapid search (did not test it):
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/image-sizes/

    but I’m sure there are others.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Rocco,

    Thanks a lot for the help.

    I’m sure of what I’m doing, disabling the creation of some formats will not bother me.

    I tested the plugin I suggested and it served as a glove :).

    Again, thank you so much for your help and a great weekend.
