    22> I think your concerns about storage are exaggerated.

    4 With all due respect, I'm not exaggerating one bit.  I'm basing these concerns on having worked through image optimization (via Shortpixel and Imagify) on literally hundreds of sites.  Sites with anywhere from 3,000 to 40,000+ images in the library. Often there are hundreds of thousands of thumbnail files, and, in some cases, the numbers reach into the millions.

    66As I've mentioned before, on a near-daily basis we have clients running out of disk space on their hosts because of thumbnails.  In our situation, it's often the backups from Shortpixel or Imagify... and that roughly tracks with the same amount of disk space that we're talking about with the WebP Conversion (should all the thumbs be duplicated). The savings is roughly 30-50%, depending on the original images, but these plugins keep the originals so, overall, the uploads folder's disk space usage can grow by 30-50% or more.
