So that, I tried this technique - Modify Default Image Name Suffix but it doesn't work as I need, I have all the images loaded, and I need to regenerate them. And what about the recovery of the images?


What I need is have the image files named as pic-large.jpg, pic-medium.jpg, pic-thumbnail.jpg instead of pic-1024x700.jpg.

I use ImageMagick engine plugin and Additional Image Sizes (zui), in order to create more sizes than the default ones.

  • Can you expand and clarify your question: what have you done, what did you expect to happen, and what didn't happen or what happened unexpectedly? – Chip Bennett Jan 25 '12 at 16:36

If you modify image sizing/naming, and already have image thumbnails that have been generated, then you likely will need to regenerate your thumbnails. There are plenty of Plugins for this purpose, in the repository.

  • Sure, I use ImageMagick engine for that, but what I need is rename the images, whit diferent suffix. ie.: pic-200x500.jpg must be called pic-medium.jpg – Laura Jan 25 '12 at 15:27

  • I don't think ImageMagick is what you need. You need WordPress to regenerate its own thumbnails. See the Plugins I linked. I typically use "Regenerate Thumbnails" or "Ajax Thumbnail Regenerate". – Chip Bennett Jan 25 '12 at 15:38
  • yes you are right, I use "Additional Image Sizes (zui)" to regenerate, but none of them change the file name suffix. – Laura Jan 25 '12 at 16:33
  • I think we're talking in circles. :) I'm assuming you've already come up with a means to change the image naming convention, and have thus changed the names of your existing images. At that point, you need to regenerate thumbnails, so that WordPress knows the correct names for each intermediate image size. – Chip Bennett Jan 25 '12 at 16:35
