wp media regenerate

Regenerates thumbnails for one or more attachments.

OPTIONS

[<attachment-id>...]

[--image_size=<image_size>]
Name of the image size to regenerate. Only thumbnails of this image size will be regenerated, thumbnails of other image sizes will not.
[--skip-delete]

[--only-missing]
Only generate thumbnails for images missing image sizes.
