And also make sure variable "output_normal" is set to off

Here how readme describes the parameter:

Normal image is an image that is stored when motion is detected. It is the same image that was taken by the camera. I.e. not a motion image like defined by output_motion. Default is that normal images are stored. If you set the value to 'first' Motion saves only the first motion detected picture per event. If you set it to "best" Motion saves the picture with most changed pixels during the event. This is useful if you store mpegs on a webserver and want to present a jpeg to show the content of the mpeg on a webpage. "best" requires a little more CPU power and resources compared to "first". Picture with motion nearest center of picture is saved when set to 'center' (since 3.2.10). Set to 'off' to not write pictures (jpeg or ppm).

In your motion.conf (or motion config file) set
snapshot_interval 0
