Hello MaxD, I have recently purchased your extension and I am having a problem. In my site I have many GBs of images in the image folder. I have noticed that Lightning creates a dir called image/cache and makes copies of all my images resulting in my server running out of space and being unable to run the extension.

I don't know why it is good to cache images on the server but I need to be able to switch it off. Please respond asap because it is really important.

Note: Pregeneration is off.

Lightning doesn't have any relation to this.

This is default OpenCart behaviour - it keeps images originals, resamples them to required sizes and store at cache folder.

Its normal tactic, especially when you have any type of images post-processing - watermarking or optimization.

Do you really suffer so hard of it? Max space you can save is the size of your images originals.
