Duplicate or double images?

At-a-glance:

  • Two same images are used on the post, a featured image was set plus it was inserted at the top of the body.
  • A conflicting plugin (such as feedzy) or WordPress theme also inserts feed images.
  • You are using media tags and have not disabled featured images in plugin settings.

Featured Image Repeated in Body

Posts are showing a featured image and a body image.

By default the plugin uses the "featured image" (you would add these using a setting in the post). If the same image is also repeated in the body, and the email displays body content, you will see duplicate images. Remove the duplicate body image or use the Premium option to “use first image in body” to bypass the featured image.

Can't delete the body image because your web page doesn't display a featured image? 

Use the Premium plugin option "feature first image" to send the first body image to the feed instead of a featured image. 

Media Tag Repeated with Featured Image 

If both a featured image and media tag are sent to the feed it could result in double images displaying in some services, like Mailchimp. Checkbox the setting "use only media tag images”.

Conflicting Plugins 

Another plugin or the theme could also include the image in the feed, even if that’s not their primary purpose. Common ones are "RSS Link plugin" and “Feedzy." Go through your other plugins and theme settings. If necessary disable other plugins one at a time, clear your cache, and test the feed to find the culprit. Learn more

Conflicting Theme 
Continuing the troubleshooting for conflicting plugins, check your theme's functions.php file for thumbnail RSS code. It can be a less obvious cause of duplicate images.

Use the RSS Image Checker tool to find out what images are pulled into the feed. 

Note: The Image Checker will not detect images placed in the body content causing double images from "Featured Images Repeated In Body."
