Very Confusing
By , for WP 4.1.1

I am unable to understand the before after buttons and how to do a backup using this plugin prior to doing a cleanup. Very difficult to understand what should be easy to understand I would think

Works almost perfect
By , for WP 4.1.1

Works as described - except that some settings are cancelled if you log out: Espescially for sizes to ignore this is a bit annoying.
With 6600 images on the site it also is a slow, but probably very safe job.
For the wish list:
- Ability to move images to a new subfolder from which it should be easy to restore them. (This is possible on either Clean up images or Image clean up, but none of them would work with our numer of imiges.)
UPDATE:
The settings most often do not go away, so doing the job in several steps is no problem.
After finishing, I have only (not) found about a handfull of images being deleted by accident. On 6000+ photos that is very good.

Deletes used images

Unfortunately it just deleted most of my images. Does not work as described, only the blog images remain...

Listen To The Reviews! WILL DELETE YOUR IMAGES!
By , for WP 4.1

I ignored all the one star reviews. Sure enough, my site's used images also deleted. Very active site, and never ever needed to restore from backup, despite many changes and plugins used in the past.

This plugin did it. Erased my images.

Surely the dev spent a lot of time building this, free no less. Props for trying. For now though, unless you want to nuke your site from orbit, stay clear of this one.

Great idea for a useful plugin but unfortunately it deleted used images.

Fixed
By , for WP 4.0

I used a workaround, but amazingly, a few hours after I posted my review below, the plugin was updated and as best as I can tell, fixed. (I already implemented the workaround.)

Anyway, it was either a superb coincidence or a developer who pays attention! So, give it a shot and see if it doesn't do what you need.

PRIOR REVIEW (most likely fixed now):
The plugin seemingly correctly identified the correct images and had nice options, but clicking the "Delete Selected Images" button just deleted the information from the database but left the actual files in the directory.

In my scenario, I ended up using Cleanup Images to delete all the child images then regenerated the thumbnails with only the new sizes. That might not work for most.

I've left this plugin installed but deactivated because I hope it was just a temporary bug relating to WordPress 4.0. ALMOST there... just didn't get to the goal.

Lost Used Images
By , for WP 4.0

Despite claiming that it would ONLY delete unused images, removed several used ones causing me about 5 hours work. Not impressed and would give it NO stars if possible. Steer clear of this plugin
