🚀 Pro Version | 🔵 Facebook | 🐦 Twitter | 👥 LinkedIn

How many images and thumbnails do you have on your WordPress site? Can’t count, right?

Managing those images and thumbnails is harder than counting them. ThumbPress, the one-stop WordPress image management plugin makes this easier than ever.

Check out the exciting features below:

👉 All ThumbPress Features to Supercharge Your WordPress Image Management

💥 Disable Thumbnails
💥 Regenerate Thumbnails
💥 Find Unused Images [Pro]
💥 Set Image Upload Limit
💥 Detect Large Images [Pro]
💥 Image Compression [Pro]
💥 Replace Images [Pro]
💥 Set Social Media Thumbnails
💥 Image Editor [Pro]
💥 Convert to WebP
💥 Disable Right Click on Image

Here are some of the key features of the ThumbPress plugin for WordPress Image Management –

🚀 Disable Thumbnails

When you upload an image using Media Uploader, WordPress generates multiple copies/thumbnails of that image. By default, WordPress generates 5 thumbnails:
– Thumbnail
– Medium
– Medium-large
– Large
– Scaled

Along with this, your themes and plugins add more thumbnails and most of these thumbnails remain unused.

The result? Unnecessary additional images eat up your server space and slow down your site!

This is where the Disable feature comes into the picture. Just install the plugin and choose which of the image sizes you want to prevent from generating.

🚀 Regenerate Thumbnails

Regenerate thumbnails on your WordPress site at any moment, regardless of their sizes. No more worrying about lost thumbnails — our WordPress plugin guarantees swift restoration, keeping your site’s visual appeal flawless and consistent. Start now and rebuild thumbnails on your WordPress site.

🚀 Social Media Thumbnails

ThumbPress enables you to assign unique thumbnails for various social media platforms, ensuring that an image intended for Facebook remains uncropped when shared on Twitter or LinkedIn. You can upload distinct thumbnails for each social media site.

🚀 Image Upload Limit

Set a maximum limit for image upload size and resolution to ensure faster loading times. Our feature allows you to customize these parameters according to your website requirements and prevent oversized images from slowing down your site.

🚀 Convert Images to WebP

In WordPress convert images to WebP in bulk or one by one without any effort. Convert JPG or PNG to WebP from the comfort of your favorite WordPress dashboard and upgrade your website’s performance without sacrificing image quality. This advanced function ensures your images remain crisp and clear while reducing file size compared to traditional formats. The image conversion to WebP format helps you in SEO and gets you better rankings as Google recommends this format.

🚀 Disable Right Click on Image

Disable the right-click function on your website, a simple yet effective way to deter visitors from downloading or copying your images and thumbnails. It’s a preventive measure that adds an extra layer of protection to your digital assets and keeps your visuals exclusive to your site.

Firstly, the plugin does its thing, it works, that is all good. But this is yet another wordpress plugin developer who, for some reason, enjoys cluttering the admin area with advertising. I dont want my admin section, which is meant to be for managing my sites, cluttered with adverts. Why wordpress still allows this abhorrent UI practice is beyond me. If you dont want to have close their advert everytime you log in find an alternative.

Wanted so bad to leave a 5-Star but could not. At the time of this Review, the Support Thread lists multiple instances of what I ran into: ThumbPress was Great in helping pin down what thumbs I needed to keep and which to not have regenerated, “Regenerated” is where the 3-Star comes in. Regenerate Thumbs failed completely, had to keep this plugin installed while “Force Regenerate Thumbnails” plugin was used to delete the unwanted and regenerate only what I needed.

This has been a love-hate sort of thing. Initially, I had some issues. I reported an issue, and it was addressed right away. At that point, I loved the plugin. It removed bloat and brought total disk storage down. So I changed my one-star review to 5. With the last update, image thumbnail regeneration hangs. Posting on the support forum returned no answer. A week later, someone else reported the same issue. They have also not received a response. It is very disappointing. There is so much potential here.

The plugin is great, some images don’t need to be saved in different sizes at all! And if this plugin doesn’t exist, you have to refer to the codes every time and disable and re-enable them. However there is still a long way to go… there is a major need in this plugin. That should add this setting to the WordPress media upload section.(when we want to create a product or post) So that we can choose there, with a toggle button, whether to generate sizes or not

This is a fantastic plugin that performs as described. No fuss. No clutter. Super easy to use. All the naysayers below are either hopelessly incompetent or the reviews are fake. Even if there were glitches in the early versions, clearly they have since been rectified. Love it. Thank you.
