I used this plugin on a site I was restoring after it had been hacked, a couple of years back. There were masses of images. This plugin saved a great deal of time. I'm writing this now as I have another job with requires this and first thing I do is check the negative comments, of which there are many. Most seem to come from people who did not follow the instructions, and I note that the author had often replied with an apology and "how can I make it better?"
Is unjust only 3*** he deserve 5*****
Does exactly what it should do. Easy to use and also works with Visual Composer!
After update v.2.5.3 all works fine.
I have an old website with more than 21GB of images.
After hard work of this plugin now I have only 3gb weight of my backup.
Thank's a lot to the Plugin Author.
Наve a nice years of life.
I was migrating my site, and i sow that i have 2GB of image in the upload folder, i was surprised because my blog is not really that big, so i try this plugin and i reduce to only 400MB, a big difference! And all seem to work fine.
A really useful plugin, Thanks.
I was always searching for a plugin that would help me to delete all unused images in my blogs. This plugin does exactly what it says it will do. So far I have been able to save 10MB of space in one of my blogs and I am still going.
This can help you save a lot of space especially if you have more than 3 thousand images in your website and you are not using CDN services.
Thank you for this great plugin.
Well done ;)
I never give my review of this plugin, but it's time, this plugin is one of the better plugin for identify not used images, it's truth that can be dangerous, but in the version 2.X was added a lots of new features to reduce the risk of delete used images. I sow the other plugin like this but lots of them are the old DNUI code, with a lots of bugs, and nothing new, they only changed some HTML code.
The plugin deletes all the images that are not used in records site wordpress. I use the plugin for over a year and I was completely satisfied with it. Very good plug.
THANK YOU so much to the author of this fantastic plugin.
It is one of the best ways of optimising wordpress I've ever come across.
One of my photography sites has 22,000 individual images, but the number of files (inodes) created in total was a ridiculously bloated 90,000. I was able to reduce this by 65%.
My database was also a whopping 112MB and I've now reduced it to 44.5 MB.
Some of the plugins I was using created additional images and the scan picked up all the ones that weren't being used and I was able to delete them 100 at a time ... now my web host likes me again ;-)
Of course, like the author recommends, please take a backup of your site just to make sure you don't delete anything accidentally. There is an inbuilt image backup system incorporated with this plugin if you are unsure how to do it via FTP or your WHM, so at the very least, use that.
I inadvertently violated my Web Hosts terms of service by having too many files. This plugin has thankfully saved me hundreds of dollars.
I appreciate this more than words can say.
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.
