It is important to know what sizes you need and only setup for those. Afterall, you will never use the sizes that you don’t need. Do you know these images will be taking your hosting spaces too? Imagine how many of those thumbnails has been created but hardly ever used on your post/page?

If you know that you only need 1 size: default size I upload. Then you should let WordPress know that they don’t need to crop any size unnecessary. Simply set those image sizes to 0 (zero).
