This is another plugin I tend to install on client sites to help keep uploads named in a best use way. Although servers and computers as a whole have gotten a lot better with odd named files, it can still be an issue.

I typically install this plugin as part of setting up a clients site to help keep their image sizes under control. It’s easy to upload huge images, and there isn’t a need for them, unless you are an artist and have a specific need for them.
The plugin allows you to set the max size and do a few other things to your images, so this is a great additions to you typical WordPress install.
