    The WordPress default function to create thumbnail just work if the thumbnails file doesn’t exists.

    If you use the “Regenerate Thumbnail”, you always will need to change the thumbnail size to “regenerate”…

    The “Force Regenerate Thumbnail” get all olds thumbnail, delete, to after create all it again. =)

    That’s all.

    What’s the point about deleting/regenerating thumbnails of the same size?

    Same image and same thumbnail size. Why do you need to regenerate?

    I though that this plugin will delete old sizes when you change the size of thumbnails for regenerating, but now I see it does not that 🙁

    What’s the point about deleting/regenerating thumbnails of the same size?

    This plugin is very helpful if you as webmaster e.g. later overwrite a previously uploaded source-image with a better version (view from a different angle etc.) or an otherwise adjusted version (enhanced brightness, “shopped”, etc.) with the same image filename via FTP or similar. Then the thumbnails can be “updated” and already existing pages and posts which contain thumbnail-links of that source-image can be left unedited and have no broken links.

    Also helpful if you remove a previously used custom thumbnail-size from your code to get rid of the then unnecessary extra image files to save space / have smaller backup-archives etc.
