Perfect !

Working like a charm !

This is THE regeneration plugin!
By ,

An ABSOLUTELY must have plugin for WordPress.
Unlike most other plugins (at least all i have tried) this plugin actually removes unused thumbs and regenerates only those you need.
I dont want to talk bad about other plugins, but they mostly are worthless for this purpose. What good is it to regenerate thumbnails and keep unused ones?

I can recommend this plugin very much for all.


Great for use after changing responsive theme!

Worked great for my site, after changed the theme, tons of images where left at uploads folder, but with this plugin, all images were regenerated and only the required thumbnails are there.

Just, batch a small amount of images if you don't want to overcharge your server/host...

Massive Time Saver
By , for WP 4.1.1

Force Regenerate Thumbnails is a MASSIVE time saver. Changing your media settings can often wreak havoc on your site, but not if you run FRT immediately after.

In terms of how powerful this plugin is, I recently ran FRT on a site with approx. 900 images that had been uploaded (site is pretty old and filled with content) and out of all the images there were only 2 errors. Which you can easily fix with the "Force Regenerate Images that had an error" option once your initial batch is done.

Perfect companion for sites with custom image sizes.

When improperly sized images are present on a page, they increase load time, which affects usability, search engine rankings, etc. This plugin makes it easy (just a couple clicks in the Dashboard) to bulk-resize images to the dimensions specified in your functions/Dashboard and delete the unnecessary leftovers. I use it on every WP site I make. My only critique is that the Force Regenerate Thumbnails links disappear when view the Media Library in grid view, which may be confusing at first. In the Media Library, the links are only visible in list view. Great plugin. Simple. Love it.

Excellent, due to it's unique feature to remove unused thumbnails automatically.

Tested on my site w. new theme, and come back to review.
All thumbnails re-build successfully, and best of all, no redundance left (forced to use this plugin due to redundant tbs occupying my disk space after re-build my tbs by another plugin.

Life Saver !!!!

Thank you so much,

This is a great plugin. When I have migrate my site from one sever to another server I have made some changes with theme then my all the product images are not displaying. All the images are reside under the upload folder. That was the frustrating for me that more than 1000 product without image. then i have upload othis .plugin and regentrate all.

Thanks .... really great for me..

Fantastic must have plugin to resize all images in a button press

This plugin is a lifesaver and will process tens of thousands of images, delete redundant sizes and create new images. Especially handy when you change your theme and need to make everything fit perfectly.

Activate, press force regenerate thumbnails and you are done!

Excellent must have plugin.

Works great when you don't need all the extras

I needed to create a few photo galleries but didn't need all the extra sizes. After I'd turned off the extra sizes, I deleted my images and uploaded them again. Unfortunately, deleting them didn't remove all the alternate sizes but this plugin took care of that. 1000+ images down to 118. Sweet!
