Chatting About Sizes

@pierlo asked for a discussion on #43524, which is about adding an additional image size.

Folks seemed to agree that it makes sense to add another one, and that it’d be great if sizes could be backfilled in the future, but that’s likely not for 5.3.

Connected to that, there was a conversation about the direction WordPress could take with sizes in 5.4 and beyond. Things discussed included a feature like add_image_size for attachments, delivering srcset sizes based on file size, and resizing after theme change.

If that sounds interesting, you can read the whole discussion here.

Ticketticket Created for both bug reports and feature development on the bug tracker. Triagetriage The act of evaluating and sorting bug reports, in order to decide priority, severity, and other factors.
