Too many thumbnail images created for your WordPress site?

I found this code helps control the bloat. It's especially helpful to be able to "unset" image sizes created by parent themes that aren't used in child themes. For that, just change 'thumbnail', 'medium' or 'large' to the name that the theme author created and you will no longer have those sizes generated.

A nice companion to this is to use the "Regenerate Thumbnails" plugin, as you will probably find that you want to delete all of the additional sizes that were created from the original photos and start fresh by regenerating only the sizes you need.
