reGenerate Thumbnails Advanced


A free, fast and easy to use regenerate thumbnails plugin supported by ShortPixel 🙂

El plugin Regenerate Thumbnails Advanced (RTA) es útil cuando instalas un nuevo tema de WordPress en tu sitio que tiene diferentes tamaños de imagen. Mientras que las nuevas imágenes que subas se recortarán y redimensionarán para adaptarse a tu nuevo tema, las miniaturas antiguas permanecerán sin cambios. Usando RTA puedes regenerar las miniaturas para todas tus imágenes existentes.
También es muy útil cuando tienes muchas miniaturas que ya no se usan y quieres eliminarlas mientras te aseguras de tener todas las miniaturas necesarias generadas.


  • Choose the quality of the regenerated thumbs.
  • Option to remove not-used-anymore thumbnails.
  • Remove metadata for missing images and thumbnails
  • Fully integrated with ShortPixel Image Optimizer.
  • Option to select the thumbnail size for featured and non-featured images.
  • Option to easily add as many extra thumbnail sizes as you wish.
  • Interval selection (last day, week, month, all) for the thumbs that will be regenerated.
  • Clean and simple interface where you have a progress bar showing you the percentage of images regenerated.
  • Resume function – the regeneration process will continue from where it was left in case you accidentally close the processing tab in your browser.

There was a problem the first time I ran the plugin, my site is still not on the latest PHP, which caused the problem. Within hours of my support request they had a new version and it worked perfectly.

Found thumbnails but did nothing. I have Shortpixel as my main image handler too 🙁

Hello, I just wanted to drop a line to the makers of this plug-in. The thumbnails look amazing - before I had super blurry images and this little app does exactly what I had hoped it would - create clear, crisp pictures. But unfortunately, I still see a big problem: For some reason not all of my thumbnails are square, and I am not sure why... I wish that I could pick that I wanted all of my images to be uniform, because it looks sloppy in the gallery view when some pictures are a uniform, square size and others are other rectangle sizes.. I would be very happy if you could fix this. Plus points if you add a feature where you can pick the crop (square area) of the picture that is shown... not all of my pictures have their focus in the middle. Thanks!

I installed this on a very simple WordPress site, but it's not working. When I click the generate button, nothing is happening.

I click regenerate button and it doesn't matter which option I choose, it simply does nothing.
