    Wordpress automatically generates various cropped/resized version of every image you upload.

    Yes when you upload a picture wordpress makes different sizes, 4 I think.
    you can see them /wp-content/uploads/2013/10 (my uploads Are filed with year/month folders) wacky sizes indeed.I think it reads the image dimensions from the file info and then multiplies by some factor like .8 or something. WordPress does this automatically when you upload an image, so if you change image size when you select an image to use the file already exists.

    When you select an image to use from media images and edit it there is a check box for size and then a button that says use this image.
    In Dashboard–>Settings –> Media you set the image sizes.
    example Thumbnail 150×150
    Medium 300×300
    Large 600×600
    When you upload image it needs to be the size you set, if not when it is cropped or resized it may not be perfect.
    I play it safe.. for each media image I create 3 images with exact dimensions.
    imagethumbnail150x150.jpg
    imagemedium300x300.jpg
    imagelarge600x600.jpg

    For some images you can hover over the question mark ?, and it may have the recommended image size ( like slider and column images)
    Default content width is 1050, so slider image default size is 1050 x 350
    Column images arre 308×308
    You can always change the image sizes but you must make sure all settings regarding image sizes are equal to the actual image dimensions.

    Every time i upload a photo when Parbaola theme is activated, i will find a total of 8 images in the folder. ( instead of 3 for basic wordpress theme)
    Can you add some option to avoid this problem?
    Server hosting doesn’t like to have 80000 file instead of 30000 or 40000
    For each image uploaded in the website

    the original image
    2 image cause the header
    1050×87
    1050×350
    2 image for thumbnail
    150×150
    150×112
    1 image for featured image
    200×150
    2 other images
    1024×768
    300×225

    We’ll look into this and see if we can limit / reduce the amount of cropped/resized images created.
