I am using media_handle_sideload function to upload images in my plugin. Is it possible to disable image resize or set it to a specific size and do not make copies (upload only resized image).

1 Answer 1


If you look at media_handle_sideload in source, you can see how it works.

The function that generates the various sizes is within wp_generate_attachment_metadata, the image_make_intermediate_size function.

You could possibly use the wp_handle_sideload function instead and manually resize it via image_make_intermediate_size.
