Have to pay for fullsize image functionality... Deleted forever.

Great idea, but broken functionality and unhelpful support
By , for WP 4.4

This plugin came pre-packaged with a WordPress theme that I purchased for a client's website. The generated retina images took up an excessive amount of space on the client's hosting, so we attempted to use the plugin's 'Bulk Delete' function. Unfortunately, this function freezes at 10% every time. And even when we let it "run" overnight it just froze. So now we're left manually deleting the generated images.

I attempted to reach out to the plugin developer, but found him to be less than helpful. He accused me of "Playing around with themes and strange plugins too much" despite the website being a clean install of WordPress 4.4, with no experimental use of other themes. I understand that plugin development isn't easy, and can be outright frustrating at times but shifting the blame in such a manner definitely doesn't help anyone.

I'm willing to overlook technical issues when it's met with great plugin support. I'll even settle for 'Okay' support. But unfortunately this plugin has neither.
