Top plugin, fast and reliable cleaning

By roicecz on September 15, 2023

Great plugin, still checking the site for now. But 250k previews were cleaned, which was caused by a poorly set template that generated 40 previews from each file. Many thanks for saving lot of hours work.

FLAWLESS - Have used extensively across multiple websites.

I've been using reGenerate Thumbnails Advanced for several months to update hundreds of images on multiple websites.

What a game-changer if you must update or modify images on WordPress.

Thanks Gerard and Team ShortPixel!

I could find the option "Delete Unselected Thumbnails" only with this plugin. And finally the old shop website is cleaned and brightened up from all those unused thumbnails :D Thanks guys! <3

Reliable, efficient and easy to use

Regenerate Thumbnails Advanced is an excellent WordPress plugin that offers advanced features for users who need to regenerate their thumbnails quickly and easily. One of the most outstanding aspects of this plugin is its stability. It is very reliable and can resume the regeneration process if it gets stuck, ensuring that you don't lose your progress. Well done!

Another great feature of this plugin is that it starts with the newest images instead of the oldest, making the regeneration process faster and more efficient. This is especially useful for users with large media libraries, as they can save a significant amount of time by regenerating only the thumbnails that they need.

Keep up the good work!

Waste of time

By markuserikssen on November 18, 2022

Tried everything to get my thumbnails back, but nothing worked. I've wasted hours on this and watched several tutorials. Then I installed another tool, Regenerate Thumbnails, and everything worked within 1 minute.

Perfect plugin

This is very nice solution for the thumbnails. I'm so happy. Thank you!

Actually a good Plugin to Remove Unwated Images (Thumbnails)

By hfnoxious on October 22, 2022

I was trying to find a solution where a number of unwanted images thumbnail dimenions were producded by wordpress. This plugins can help delete the preexisting images but for future uploads there will be a need of a plugin that stop the production of unwated image sizes

Removes thumbnails that shouldn't be remove

By macksix on October 17, 2022

Using WordPress 6.02, PHP 7.4.32, tagdiv newsmagazine theme. With imagick, with the plugin set Default JPEG Quality: 90, the thumbnail quality was better than the original thumbnail quality. Using the GD library, the thumbnail quality was a slightly less with imagick, but the thumbnail was higher quality is higher quality than original GD thumbnail generation. Using JPEG Quality: 80 generates about the same quality as original for imagick and GD. The plugin could use a regenerate date range and some way to identify which images are being used that match the image size names. I am impressed that it has process recovery and will restart where it was interupted. There is a flaw with the "Delete Unselected Thumbnails" function where if there is a base image which has a size in the name, e.g., 400x400, it may get deleted as a thumb for a different image. It also removes thumbnails generated for "Simple Local Avatars" plugin that should not be deleted.
