I had an issue where 1,000’s of images are showing up in my wpContent uploads folder. 100’s for even a single item. I’m assuming this is where CyberSEO is storing the images.
It appears as if ALL images from each of the feeds are getting pulled down which is consuming a ton of disk space. I’m not sure what the reason is from a programmatic perspective, but, can you set the script so it only pulls down ONE image (the actual image used) and not all other images?
Note: I have the setting “Generate from the 1st post image” selected.

You are talking about featured images (post thumbnails) right? In this case the answer is: no, it can’t be done. The amount and sizes of featured images are defined by your WordPress theme. The CyberSEO plugin doesn’t generate anything by itself. It’s just tell the WordPress to generate as many pictures of different sizes as it is required by the theme.
As about all other images that being stored from the post (not just the first one as a post thumbnail). If you don't need it, simple disable the “Store images locally” option.
P.S. It will be better if you give an URL of the original post which was pulled to your blog along with a list of images that were generated for it ans saved to your wp-content/uploads/ folder.
I am referring to multiple different images being stored. Only 1 can be used as the featured image I can’t imagine why my theme (which is generic) cares about how many featured images are being pulled down, no less cause 1,000’s of images to be consumed.
I’ve since moved to a new host and cleaned up the images consuming disk space on the previous host. I would rather store the images on my server (for obvious reasons) and changing over because my ‘theme’ is causing the issue doesnt make sense to me.
I’ll keep an eye on this in case it happens again to relay the URL as you mention , thanks!

Because they (WP themes) work this way. For example, the standard “Twenty Eleven” theme saves at least 3 copies of the featured image of the following sizes: 150×150, 300×200, 450×288. The magazine-style “Cover WP” theme works with a bit different sizes: 150×150, 300×168, 50×50 etc. I believe it would have much more sense if you address this question to WordPress developers directly.
Also make sure to read the official manual about the Login to see this link. functions. These are used by the WordPress theme to define the number and sizes of generated thumbnails.
