Disable "BIG Image" Threshold

Omschrijving

In WordPress 5.3, several improvements were made to how images are processed. One of these improvements was the concept of “BIG images”. When an image is uploaded that exceeds the “BIG image” threshold (2560 by default), a new “full” size image is generated. This new image is then used instead of the true original when generating image subsizes to reduce server load.

Prior to 5.3, it was possible for the originally uploaded image to be displayed on the front-end, even when they were not “web ready”. Unnecessarily large images can be bad for performance and wastes bandwidth (which is unfortunate for those with slow Internet, or bandwidth caps by their service plans). This new full size image will now be displayed instead.

There are some scenarios where disabling this threshold would be desired, though. Maybe you run a photography site that
needs to display original images, or your theme has full screen backgrounds.

This plugin disables the “BIG” image threshold and preserves the true originally uploaded image as the full size.

Thank you for developing the Disable "BIG Image" Threshold plugin. For those wishing to display photographs in their original form, the recent WordPress scaling “enhancement” was very troubling. Carter

Fixed error: "Post-processing of the image failed. If this is a photo or a large image, please scale it down to 2500 pixels and upload it again."

This plugin is a life-saver, and very necessary for my site where I want full control over image quality + scale. Works perfectly.

I also had to remove my memory limits on the server, increase the max post size, and dump my server cache after adding this plugin to get it to work, but now I can actually upload images. Thanks!
