How To Reduce Image Size Generation


The Avada theme generates image sizes for the most important areas, so that images of appropriate sizes can be loaded on the frontend instead of always loading the full image size. It may seem like a lot of images, but this reduces loading time considerably on the front end for your viewers. We feel the performance increase is well worth the extra image files. If you would like to change this to suit your needs however, please read the information below.

How To Reduce Image Size Generation

Step 1 – Go to the Avada > includes file path and open the class-avada-init.php.

Step 2 – Inside the class-avada-init.php file, locate the add_image_size that you want to comment out by adding a double backslash ( // ) at the beginning of the that line of code (example below).

Step 3 – Once done, don’t forget to save your changes.

Step 4 – Run the Force Regenerate Thumbnails plugin to regenerate your thumbnails. After doing this, all sizes you don’t want included will be removed.
