    Is there something new in 5.6.4 that scales images?

    I was publishing a post with a 1600px image (full) and I noticed that is being scaled down and a new -scaled.jpg is added to the image itself. My original full size jpg files is not present in the media library, the -scaled is.

    The only thing I changed in the site is the update to 5.6.4.

    Is there a new setting or something causing this? How to revert it?



    Hi peterolle,

    As far as I know there’s nothing in the Enfold update that does that, you can check our changelog:
    I think an image optimization plugin is adding that -scaled.jpg like imagify.

    Best regards,


    Thank you Nikko.

    I found that there is this new feature since WordPress 5.3 where big images are scaled down by the core. The threshold for this to happen is for images either width or height of 2560px, which is the case here.

    This can be disabled using the following filter.

    add_filter( 'big_image_size_threshold', '__return_false' );

    In case someone ends here, that will do the trick.



    Hi peterolle,

    Thanks for sharing your solution :)
    And also thanks for using Enfold and have a great day!

    Best regards,
