I believe I understand this about Drupal 8: every image uploaded will automatically be created in each of the image styles I have set up (or the default 3 that come with core).
This incentivizes me NOT to create very many image styles, because then I'll end up with a bunch of different copies of my original image, whether they will ever be used in that particular style or not.
Is that correct?
On the other hand, Molot's answer over here mentions that "styled image files are supposed to be created on first access". That gives me hope that if I upload an image, it will only be created in an image style the first time it is requested in that image style. That means I could have as many custom image styles as I need and not worry that an image will be created for each one of those every time.
For example, if I have 12 custom image styles, but I only call a certain image in one style, will I end up with only 2 copies of the image, one as the original upload and one in the only style I called? This is what I would love to be true.
Thanks for any insight.
