    Hi

    For example, when somebody uploads a 4MB image/attachment and it gets resized to 100kb or 200kb etc., what has happened to the original 4mb image, has it been saved on my server as a temp file or is only the smaller resized image saved on the server?

    Thanks.

    Uploaded files are resized based on the settings in the ACP and stored in the internal_data directory.

    Thumbnails are stored in the data directory.

    Just so I understand you correctly, the original full sized file is not stored on the server, only the smaller resized file?
