This is a WP-CLI run to fix changed image sizes inside content.
When images are embedded in content, WordPress hardcodes the url to selected image size (for examle image-160x90.jpg). If later on you change the size of "large", "medium" or custom size, regenerating images will not replace these already embedded images. This may leave you with broken images or the old image sizes just won't fit the new content width / design.
WordPress has a way (probably not that smart way, but a way) to save what attachemnt ID and size the embedded image is supposed to be. Image markup looks something like this:
<img class="size-medium wp-image-1234" src="https://wordpress.local/wp-content/uploads/image-160-90.jpg" alt="" width="160" height="90">
From this markup we can figure out that size is supposed to be "medium" and attachment ID is "1234". This gives us tools to go check a new source url for medium sized version of attachment. If the source has changed, this WP-CLI run will replace it. Otherwise it is ignored. The width and height is also replaced.
Notice that this is the base knowledge this plugin needs. If for some reason, some of your images are missing information on size or attachement ID, this run will ignore those images.

This plugin doesn't really care if you have messed up image sizes before or after activation. It's here just to clean up the mess.
3. Run repair
It's wise to take backup of the database before running this fix. This plugin will only alter your database so there is no need to backup uploads for this run.
