#56071: wordpress images too large

 How is it that an optimzed .png of 1081x753 with file size 61.5KB is
 converted to 1024x713.png and occupies 527.31KB.  Overall WP increased the
 environmental impact of that one image ten fold, and as I publish about
 100 or so of such images weekly server space is also occupied unnecessary.

 The WP generated file of 527.31K optimises to 106K.

 Also if I upload the optimised 1024x713.png of 106K, then WP generates a
 duplicate of 527.31K instead of just copying it.

 I read it is no longer permissible, as was in the earlier releases of WP,
 to disable the auto generation of  of 'large', 'medium-large' etc. files.

 Also google degrades sites that serve unoptimized content. I consider this
 as defect and thus report it as a bug, if yo do not think so, please
 reassign to enhancements.
