You may find that your Media library is filling up with images as MyCurator finds articles for your content curation. MyCurator not only pulls in the full text of an article, it also collects the images found in the article.
MyCurator only stores one image per article in your media library, usually the first image it finds. All of the other images you see in an article are just links, they aren’t stored in the media library. Still, that may be a lot of images stored if you get a lot of training posts per day.
Fortunately, MyCurator always deletes images for any Training Posts that you do not make into a live WordPress post. Training Posts are automatically deleted after 7 days (you can change this in the Options Admin tab) along with the stored image. So while you may see a lot of images in your media library, it doesn’t grow forever, ending at about your average amount of Training Posts per week.
If you would like, you can turn off image capture by clearing both of the Image capture options in the Basic tab of the Options menu item.
Lets say you want to go in a different direction with your curation. You are still focusing on the same topics and keywords, but you are looking for a different type of article than before.
