    Thank you for this blog post. I was searching how and where these new settings were.
    I’m trying to find a nice solution for a friend that don’t know anything about image size and compression.
    He takes shots, create content and upload them. I would like the original to be resize and and the only thumbnails to be the ones defined in the “media” options.

    Thanks so much for writing this article! I’ve been struggling all day trying to figure out why the images I upload to WordPress are not as crisp as they should be. I own a small design company, so image quality is super important. I think I’d like to deactivate WordPress scaling but not sure I understand where to enter that code. Is it possible you can give more guidance on the child theme approach? Sorry if that’s a silly question, I’m not very savvy with this stuff!

      Hi Camila – any code you add to your website would go in your child theme files. The code here would go in your functions file in your child theme as noted.
