For image upload in my plugin i am using media_handle_sideload function. Is it possible to disable image resizing on this function?

1 Answer 1


Have a look at media_handle_sideload in source. The function within there that generates the intermediate sizes is wp_generate_attachment_metadata.

If you just want to upload the file, you can use the wp_handle_sideload function directly and bypass the meta data and attachment generation.
