Question and Answers:

Q: Some hot linked image are not converted, why is this?
A: There are varying reasons why a hot linked image cannot be converted, in the rare occasion this happens upload the image as an attachment manually.

Q: Why isn't GD supported?
A: GD does a terrible job of creating large images.

Q: Can files in the /tmp/ directory be deleted?
A: Yes.

Q: Are attachments reused, meaning if the same attachment is located in several posts does each one use up disk space?
A: Each attachment is saved separately, however this is not a problem these days as disk space is so inexpensive.
