    Thanks very much for the writeup and the UI suggestions! I like the idea of moving the sizes to a dropdown; will try to get to that when I get a bit of space.

    Thanks for the info. This is a good way to see all the picture files that WordPress creates in the background.
    I wonder if adding an option to delete the files from there is a good idea. It could help get rid of un-used images. But at the same time it could also cause some issues!

    Huh. For years I’ve been using a snippet from Studio Grasshopper to display all media sizes in the uploader, so you can pick from all available sizes when adding media to a post or page.

    If this plugin does that plus allows me to see what sizes were generated for my old images (say 3 theme changes ago), this could be just the tool I’ve been waiting for :)

    Just as a followup, after playing with this plugin, it doesn’t do what I was hoping it would do.

    While seeing what different image sizes already exist for a particular image is handy, it doesn’t actually add the alternative image sizes is use in the theme beyond the ones defined in Media Settings.

    The snippet I’ve been using does exactly that, allowing me to select from any defined image size to insert into a post or page, and that’s been invaluable for me over the years (something which WordPress should have added by default years ago, but I won’t digress here) :)

    I can see where this plugin would be useful while undergoing a cleanup, but unless it eventually includes a way to selectively delete unneeded sizes for selected images, or adds the additional image sizes to the dropdown so they can be selected when adding images to posts, I honestly can’t see any other way to use this plugin.

    Guess I’ll continue using that snippet so I can choose which alternative media size when adding images to posts :)
