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.
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"
[ ] 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.
I have a number of sites where multiple users of varying ability and knowledge are uploading Mahoooosive images straight from a camera, this plugin did a fantastic job with the bulk edit function , worked flawlessly. I use backupbuddy on my sites , here's a quick example -
site backup size before - 1.3 GB ! whoops
site backup size after - 256MB :)
I'm running Genesis and DWB , it's all good.
If you're working with non tech-savvy people, you can't live without this plugin.
I'm currently resizing about 1.5GB of giant images in a clients' upload folder. This plugin is a godsend! THANK YOU!
I just installed this and tried it out for the first time with a 4608x3072 image, 3.91mb in size, and it saved to the database with a max width of 1024 as specified in the settings. Worked like a charm!
Users are going to upload massive photos - but imsanity cuts them down to size with a minimum of fuss.
Truely impressed. I tried any resize plugin i could get my hands on but none was as easy, the resized images as sharp or as funtional as Imsanity. Bulk resize images also after upload? That makes this one the winner in my book :-)
It very simply keeps image sizes in check on my clients' gallery sites. I install, activate and forget it. I've even used the bulk resizer which has worked without fail. Nice!
