I removed the plugin as soon as I saw the AVIF option greyed out. I might try this plugin again once AVIF is supported.

I am very glad that I can keep the countless image sizes that WordPress itself and all the various plugins that I'm using require more efficiently stored on my server and delivered faster to my visitors. This plugin works great and this functionality should be built into the WordPress core!
