I am busy with a new look for my website and I use the Metro pro theme for that.
Its almost ready but I i am busy fixing small bugs and config things.
I was wondering, is genesis taking over the media settings in WordPress? Because I selected my thumbnail sizes (in wordpress) but when I upload a new pic the sizes are nowhere to be found.
Can plugins also control media that is uploaded?
To be straight to the point, I only want the sizes I need, saves a lot of room on my FTP.
Where are you looking for the images of different sizes? You won't see them specified in the Media Library... the only place you will physically see the different files is via FTP or a file manager, looking at the uploads folder where those images might be.
Genesis does not supercede the default WordPress settings, so you can have your theme's image definitions alongside the Media ones you define in Settings, even if you have the same size defined by both.
The easiest way to see what sizes are active is to go to Genesis > Theme Settings, and go to Content Archives. If "Include Feature Image" is enabled, you should be able to click the dropdown and see all of the image sizes that your theme and WP have defined.
And no, picking and choosing which image sizes you want WordPress to use or to ignore is not something that exists yet, even though many WordPress users and admins have been asking for something like that for at least 5 years. Your best solution would be to only define the sizes you need to use in your theme functions, then set the sizes in the Media settings to 0x0 so they won't be created.
