    Hi,

    I would like to know which image sizes are necessary for Enfold + Woocommerce to work correctly.

    The webshop of a client of mine has over 6000 images which resulted in nearly 50GB of images!

    So to reduce the file size I tried to disable these image sizes:

    shop_thumbnail
    shop_catalog
    shop_single
    shop_gallery_thumbnail

    Since Woocommerce already uses these:

    woocommerce_thumbnail
    woocommerce_single
    woocommerce_gallery_thumbnail

    But then the shop pages of my site didn’t display the right image sizes anymore so i had to restore these.

    So is it right to assume i can delete this image sizes?

    woocommerce_thumbnail
    woocommerce_single
    woocommerce_gallery_thumbnail

    Hope somebody can shine some light on this!

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Nikko,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have seen that post and I already tried to remove these:

    shop_thumbnail
    shop_catalog
    shop_single
    shop_gallery_thumbnail

    And thats when the webshop stopped functioning correctly. It suddenly displays all the original images instead of the resized ones. Which makes the webshop load time very long!

    I had to restore these image sizes and regenerate 6000 images! which takes forever too haha

    So my question is:

    Can delete the following image sizes?

    woocommerce_thumbnail
    woocommerce_single
    woocommerce_gallery_thumbnail

    And can you confirm these are not being used by Enfold to display the shop images correctly?

    Hi XV,

    Yes, those 3 image sizes aren’t used by Enfold.

    Hi Nikko,

    Thanks again for the reply!

    After removing those image sizes all the shop images have disappeared!

    I’m very confused now.

    If i remove these:

    shop_thumbnail
    shop_catalog
    shop_single
    shop_gallery_thumbnail

    The shop pages show the original images (large resolution)

    If i remove these:

    woocommerce_thumbnail
    woocommerce_single
    woocommerce_gallery_thumbnail

    Then the shop displays NO images at all and i only see a default image.

    Can you help me out with this. I want to get rid of tons of unnecessary images because the site had almost 50GB of images.

    I don’t understand why the shop needs so many images or why enfold even needs so many images. I think the developers should look into this!

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi XV,

    These image sizes are the ones used by shop_thumbnail, shop_catalog, shop_single, shop_gallery_thumbnail however since you mentioned that removing woocommerce_thumbnail, woocommerce_single, woocommerce_gallery_thumbnail results to shop displaying no images. I would suggest using this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/media-cleaner/ which is recommended to removed unused images.
    The plugin also states to have a backup first before using it and also you can check their tutorial: https://meowapps.com/media-cleaner-tutorial/
    And the reason for many image sizes is page speed/performance however the downside of this is eats a lot of storage space.

    Best regards,
