If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
How can I prevent the thumbnail versions from being created? I’m not using any of those features, and there are about 8 versions created for each image I upload. I’d like to just delete those to free up space and entries in the DB.
Go to Settings > Media and uncheck “Crop thumbnail to exact dimensions (normally thumbnails are proportional)”
Did that. Then deleted all the images I had uploaded (via sFTP) and uploaded them again, and the thumbnails were still created. The media library of images is about 15megs for the whole site, but with these thumbnails it skyrockets to 75mb
Any other ideas? Does Enfold use / create thumbnails automatically outside of WordPress? Kind of at a loss for what to try next.
Yes, there are a number of areas that use the thumbnails generated so that visitors get a faster and better response when viewing the site. If you really don’t want them created you can try deleting them from the functions.php but I really can’t say what effect this will have on the front end of the site since not all image output has css constraints though the majority does.

$avia_config['imgSize']['widget'] = array('width'=>36, 'height'=>36);
