 > I do not need a 200px wide image of 20 images which are used in the post
 - I only need it for the post-thumbnail. From that perspective I would
 like to have another function than add_image_size - for example:
 add_post_thumbnail_image_size which is only triggered when somebody
 selected an image as the post-thumbnail. This will save space on the
 servers as well.

 See #13372 (kind of) and
 size-vs-add-image-size/ for a workaround.

 > Sometimes I have the case that I need the attachment ID of an url that
 has been uploaded. For example: I delevoped a plugin where an image can be
 chosen, the input field is a text field for a URL. In that case I need to
 determine the attachment ID to have access to all the necessary WP

 See `attachment_url_to_postid()` and #16830
