    Image Management. Automatically delete Original full size images after upload.

    Since the original full sized image is uploaded to the server but never used by ClassiPress, it would be nice if that image was deleted sometime after the small, medium and large versions are created.

    This would be very helpful because in terms of disk space, we could increase the file size minimum because the large image would be removed.

    It would also be nice if there was a way to have all images for an ad removed when the ad itself is totally removed.

    Just to say I wholeheartedly agree with this. The only current option is to manually delete images from expired posts using the Media manager. This deletes the original and all three resized images. If you just wanted to delete the originals, you have to go in via FTP and do it manually. Can't find any suitable, up to date plugins to do the job, although there is one called Uploads Janitor which looks like it might be good if it were updated to work with WordPress 3.

    The next release might already answered this and if not we may have to bump this feature request to be included in the succeeding release.

    And when LARGE files are uploaded - there is a blank screen during the wait time.
    Appthemes might want to place a notice there the file is being uploaded.

    Honestly when an Ad Expires or is deleted. The Images should be removed from the server otherwise we are having to pay to store their images and that comes out of our pocket
