Why not timthumb but amtythumb


Timthumb is a great script, written in PHP for image editing. However I strongly suggest amtyThumb for WordPress users due to some very basic reasons.

  1. amtyThumb is specially designed for WordPress user.
  2. It automatically extract 1st image from an article and resize it as per need.
  3. It requires post id instead of image URL. So no other sites can use script to steal your bandwidth.
  4. Like timThumb, you need not to specify allowed websites.
  5. It is light weighted and uses caching. Caching saves time to extract an image from the post and resizing it.
  6. You can cache/re-cache images for selected or all posts from admin page.
  7. It has an option page where you can test the plugin.

Latest version of amtyThumb ie 8.0 doesn’t depend on any external plugin. So just install and enjoy.
