Imsanity automatically resizes huge image uploads. Are contributors uploading huge photos? Tired of manually scaling? Imsanity to the rescue!
After moving a client's blog to a new server, I discovered that the Jetpack plugin's Photon and Tiled Galleries functions were producing broken images. After some research, I found that it was because the large original image files were taking too long to upload to Photon's servers. (They timeout after 10 sec.)
The images were "insanely" large, so reducing their size wouldn't be a problem for layout, but I was looking at hundreds of existing images. On top of that, I couldn't expect my client to resize all of their images before uploading the the future.
I searched for a plugin to ease my woes, found Imsanity, ran the bulk resizer, and now everything works beautifully. Thank you!!
Set it once and it works silently or choose bulk resize. Very handy.
...as simple as that.
Found some huge image files/mistakes from early days - one was reduced from 8000 px / 11MB to 1200 px/ 300k. Guess it saved me about 250 MB of disk space.
(Fun and useful feature: How much saved by shrinking the images?)
Great plugin, recommended!
This is installed on every client site... great plugin!
I had problems with clients uploading excessively large images onto their WordPress pages and then complaining about loading times. I would show them the correct method to upload images, but all-in-all it was a hassle for them to get it right.
I've not had a single problem with large images since installing this plugin. Can't recommend it enough. I've also created a video review of this plugin if anyone would like to see it in action.
This plugin is an excellent solution to those who have a site with lots of images. +1 for multisite support.
Thanks for the developer.
I really like it. On my client site this plugin saved me 266MB!
