Hey there and thanks for watching WPBeginner. Today I’ll show you how to regenerate thumbnails in WordPress. By default, when you upload an image to WordPress, it will create different sizes of the image and saves them to the uploads folder. Different themes use this functionality to create different sized images to work with the theme so if you change themes, your images might looked distorted. To fix this on older images, all you need to do is install and activate the regenerate thumbnails plugin.
Then we’ll go to Tools–>Regen Thumbnails. And click regenerate all thumbnails to create new images sizes for all your photos. The image size will be based on your current theme or your settings on the media page. All previous image sizes will still be available. If you only need to regenerate a few images, you can go to media library and click regenerate thumbnails for a particular photo. I hope you liked this video and found it helpful.
