Reduced size of dtatabase and uploads folder incredibly well
By , for WP 4.3

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.

Works great!

Please fix the "cantity" misspelling.

Thank you so much!

Thank you so much! I have sites that's 3-years old and had so many over-sized images and I couldn't tell what was being used and what wasn't.

Your plugin worked like a charm. I really appreciate it. I would have spent days going through all those pages/posts.

Just what I needed
By , for WP 3.7.1

I had a site that created an unreal amount of thumbnails that weren't used throughout the site which made the uploads folder 10gigs! This plugin was easy to use and I trimmed it down to just under 1g of images.

I wish you could process more images at one time but I still give it 5 stars for saving me countless hours of removing images.


Outstanding plugin
By , for WP 3.7.1

This is a life saving plugin. I have changed my website theme so many times. Each time I change theme,I also used thumbnail regenerator to regenerate the thumbnails. So,that plugin generated thousands of unused images. This plugin helped me to remove all unused images.

Thanks A Million.

Thank you so much! I have a site that's 5-years old and had so many over-sized images and I couldn't tell what was being used and what wasn't.

Your plugin worked like a charm. I really appreciate it. I would have spent days going through all those pages/posts.

Great Plug-in!
By , for WP 3.5.2

On a page-only site with many photos and unaware that the default system would make small, medium and large copies of all most image uploads, my database was filling up too fast. Manual deleting via FTP is risky.

I ran this plug-in without even backing up and deleted hundreds of files without a single accident and increased my free space on the server by abou 90%!

"Show only image not used " does not work
By , for WP 3.5.1

i am only interested to see not used images, so if i try this function the "scan database" shows empty.
but if i untick it, it scans and it finds not used images.
