When i click on an image, i get the prompI: downloading, creating sizes, still resizing and it pretty much gets stuck there forever. I have a custom wordpress setup but i still get to use all wordpress plugins normally. I've looked up your faq on your website and i can attest that there's no error whatsoever from my end as i ensured that. Noting appears in my media library. I really like this plugin and desperately need something like this. Happy to bump the stars to 5 if it gets corrected. Kind regards

This plugin helps so much and works flawlessly! It is a real time saver because instead of searching for free images in databases, you can find the image directly in your Wordpress admin area! Thank you so much for developing this.
