You might look at VT Image Resize instead of TimThumb – https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/15311 / https://gist.github.com/seedprod/1367237 Aqua looks pretty similar in usage as well, so that’s another one to consider.

I know, but please note that it can be also rejected by the reviewer.

No, they use the built-in wordpress functions so they won’t be rejected.

Yes but they use the deprecated functions, for example image_resize, so it would be rejected.

Aqua resizer will be accepted. I use it in my themes, works just fine. It has image_resize function just for fallback. If you’re using WP 3.5 and higher it uses wp_get_image_editor. This script is great, no problems at all with it. And in case of something bad happen Syamil will probably release a fix in minutes :)

Why are a lot op people using those resizers anyway? What’s wrong with the add_image_size function from WP itself?

The only advantage I see is resizing the existing images. The WordPress function will only resize the images which are added to the post after installing the theme, it does not resizes the previous images.

My theme was rejected also because of use of timthumb (today). The reason, I’m using the timrhumb, “add_image_size” works perfectly, only, when you set image as featured in the post or page.

Gets around that problem though, if at all possible it’s better to stick with add_image_sizeā€”but of course there’s situations where this just wouldn’t be the case.

You can check if a image of the desired size exists and re-size it if not.

image_resize is used just in case the user uses an old version of WP, in wp 3.5 it uses the latest media manager
