When I upload an image to the Media Library, I noticed in the actual FTP files that it automatically generates over 20 sizes of the image. Is there a way to limit this or eliminate it all together or is it essential to the theme? I want to streamline the site with only the necessary content. This doesn’t show up in the WP Media library, but it is on the site in the WP-Content folder. Thanks!
That sounds correct. The theme is doing a lot of the leg work on the upload for the files to be displayed in all the other places on the site. So it does cropping and re-sizing then for all the different uses of the image instead of upon request from a user.
Ah ok. My next question, though, is does it affect optimization and load time? Is there something I should add to address that?
