Works friggin sweet! Saves me a ton of hazzle and the content uploaders do not have to worry anymore about the size of their images.

Could not be happier! =)

Very simple to use -- the bulk feature is awesome! I'm so thankful to have found this plugin as it saved me countless hours of work.

Excellent Plugin

I talked about it on @wppluginsatoz show #186 (3:25) my current favourite WordPress plugin - works really well and being able to retrospectively resize images already in the media library saved me valuable time.

Love it so far. Awesome.

Seems to work quite well for us. We set it for 1800x1200 max, at 80% quality. An example test showed that without this plugin, the original was 4.7MB (4272x2848). After installing the plugin, the original-size image uploaded at 211KB (1800x120). A savings of 95% ! And 211KB is plenty for website images of that size. Since many of our clients don't seem to manually re-size images before they upload into posts, this plugin will be GREAT. (One other note: No change to the medium / large images that actually get used in the posts, which is good. I only noticed a change to the "original", which is what is used for the lightbox pop-up.)

More Than Doubled image file size

I was hoping for better than plugins i use. I uploaded a 35kb image and it turned into a 76kb image. I optimize before uploading, but from the reviews i thought it would at least stay the same.

A must-have plugin

I highly recommend this plugin and install it on every site I build. It saves clients, many of whom are not familiar with image processing, from having to bother with resizing images before they upload.

Works very well

Resizing on upload works perfectly and the bulk resize seems to work as well.

Nice settings and controls.

It would be great if there were an inline ability to override the resize. Ideally restricted by user role:

I was thinking about adding it this way:
Add multi checkbox field on the settings page for "Allow these user roles to override resizing"
[x] Admin
[x] Editor
[ ] Author
[ ] Contributor

Then on the upload pages include a checkbox for those user roles for "Do not resize" that is unchecked by default. Add a note for the other roles that "Uploaded JPG images will be resized to a maximum of ??x??."

Finally, I think the bulk resize falls down with lots of images (my media library is 50k+ images and I only see about 100 or 200 images returned. Frankly that it doesn't just die means the plugin is coded well and doesn't try to query too much, but I don't obviously see a way to query more or page the results. Frankly, it doesn't bother me because I wouldn't run it live on that site anyway just a minor comment.
