Is there a plugin that resizes original media upload to a reasonable size?

A client uploaded hundreds of images that are up to 20MB each, and the server storage limit is reached.

We don’t need to store a 60 megapixel version for the website to run, so I’d like to resize those original images to 10% of the size or so – which is still way bigger than necessary.

I’ve spent the last 30 minutes trying different plugins, but none is able to do this seemingly simple task – at least not without paying.

Any suggestion?

  1. Only one I can think of is

    Otherwise, you can also look into cache plugins. Some have image optimization. If you’re hosted on a litespeed powered server, I think the free litespeed plugin has image optimization.
