WordPress Plugins for Images, Photographs, and Graphics

WordPress PluginsPhotographs and graphic images are an integral part of our blogs today. We want to show people what our words often can’t. Besides, pictures are fun to look at.

WordPress offers fairly simple image uploading and the automatic creation of thumbnails, but there are a lot more you can do with your images with WordPress Plugins.


NOTE: Most of the Plugins listed in this article have now been moved to the WordPress Plugin Directory. If the link doesn’t work, please visit the Plugin Directory and search for that specific Plugin by name. If you find it, and think about it, I’d love it if you would post the new correct link in the comments below to help me keep this page updated. Thanks!


There are a lot of WordPress Plugins to help you upload, sort, arrange, enhance, edit, frame, popup, popin, lightbox, photo album, work with online image storage support and services, and manage your images.

Unfortunately, not all media-based WordPress Plugins, no matter how impressive and fun, are well supported or well documented. Creating an image-oriented WordPress Plugin is challenge, hard work, and takes a lot of maintenance as technology changes and WordPress upgrades. Many create these for fun and then let them go. I’ve done my best to only highlight the WordPress Plugins which feature strong documentation, easy instructions, and show recent activity and support.

Let’s begin with WordPress Plugins that help you edit your images before publishing.

Photo Editing WordPress Plugins

Most digital images are created with cameras and scanners which include their own photo editing software packages. Thus, most people edit the image before they upload it, or they don’t edit it at all and just post it on their blogs as is. This may explain the few WordPress Plugins for image editing.

ImageManager is the most popular photo and image editing WordPress Plugin. It integrates the stand alone PHP ImageManager + Editor with your WordPress Administration Panels in WordPress 2x+ and WordPressMU.

You can browse and upload images quickly. From the Admin Panels, you can edit your images for cropping, rotating, flipping, and scaling, as well as create thumbnails.

It integrates well with other image-oriented WordPress Plugins such as Lightbox by Huddle Together and WP lightbox JS.

Lazyest Gallery is a well done image management WordPress Plugin featuring some editing capabilities such as thumbnails, resizing, and cropping. It also features good caching, framing, captions, international character recognition and handling, images from folders, stylesheet editor, and various gallery format presentations.

It works with many other WordPress Plugins and Javascripts for images as addons or built-in features such as Filosofo upload for uploading a single image as an album, Lightbox JS v2.0 Plugin and WP lightbox 2 for the Lightbox effect.

While not an editing tool, if you work with a lot of images on your blog like I do, the Batch Image Uploader WordPress Plugin is a treat. It puts back in the ability to upload more than one image at a time to your WordPress blog. It speeds up the process and gets those images ready for inclusion in your blog quickly.

PhotoPress is a WordPress Plugin that adds a pop-up loader and image browser to the Write Post panel. It also adds random image functions for displaying images in a album or gallery.

WordPress Plugins to Display Images on Blogs

There are two types of WordPress Plugins to help you to display images on your WordPress blog. The first type uses images you’ve uploaded to your blog’s server. The second type uses images from online image storage services such as , phpwebgallery, Zenphoto, and other online image hosting sites. Some gallery WordPress Plugins will work with only one resource, while others will service more than one.

The images are displayed in two basic formats:

  • Within a post or Page
  • In the sidebar, header, footer, or other template file outside of the post content area

Both formats typically use thumbnail images which link to a larger view of the same image.

The first format showcases images in a “gallery”, a page on your blog which showcases graphic images or photographs. The images are typically arranged in a grid pattern and may or may not feature outlines, borders, colored backgrounds, or other design elements to showcase and “frame” the images on the page.

Example of a photo album or gallery showcase on a blog

Gallery WordPress Plugins help you arrange the order of how the images are to be displayed, the size of the thumbnail, and other layout options. Galleries are also known as Photo Albums. Some gallery WordPress Plugins will automatically generate thumbnail sized images as you upload the pictures.

Galleries and photo albums can work in two ways. One method is to showcase all the images you have in a folder or account. The more popular method is to group images together, either by storing them in separate folders, assigning them categories or groups as a “collection”, or handpicking which images should appear manually. Some WordPress Plugins and image tools allow you to create sub-albums or sub-galleries, breaking up the main collection into smaller ones.

Add image via WordPress Text Widget on WordPress.com blogsThe second format for displaying images on your blog allows you to put images in your sidebar, header, footer, or elsewhere outside of your post content area. This technique usually involves familiarity with WordPress Themes and template files as you may have to edit them to add the appropriate code to generate the images.

Images on sidebars and headers can be shown one at a time randomly as the page views change, in a slide show where images change during the visitors time on the page, in a small grid as small thumbnails, and in many other formats smaller than the gallery effect found on page views.

Traditionally when a linked thumbnail image is clicked, the visitor is taken to a new page with only the large version of the image displayed. The background is typically white and boring and there is no caption, title, or information about the image. With recent advances in AJAX, Javascripts, and layering, images can now be viewed through the use of a lightbox or popin effect.

Popin effect on a thumbnail linked image shows the page belowThe popin effect loads the larger image in a new “window”, similar to a popup window. However, this is not a separate window but a javascript or AJAX effect created on a layer of the page. The image looks like it is in a window that may or may not be able to be moved around on the page. The most important characteristic is that the popin window sits on a layer above the page and you can still see and read the page underneath.

Lightbox effect with the image framed against a dark or faded background over the content belowThe lightbox effect hides the content on the page while showcasing the image on a top layer of the page. The hiding is done by blacking out or creating a semi-translucent background on the top layer framing the larger image. By fading out the page in the background, the larger image becomes the focal point.

Both effects feature a close window feature or the ability to click off the image to close the popin window feature. Many offer next and previous links to move through the displayed images without returning to the page underneath.

Be sure and check out the Photoblogs and Galleries information on the , the online manual for WordPress Users, as well as the WordPress Codex Image Plugins List for more information on using images in WordPress.

Display Uploaded Images

The following WordPress Plugins display images which you have uploaded to your WordPress blog’s server. Typically, they are in a core folder of your own choice, or one specified by WordPress or the Plugin. Some of these WordPress Plugins allow grouping of images into collections or sub-galleries or sub-albums through the use of sub-folders.

Yellow Swordfish’s Popup Image Gallery WordPress Plugin creates a user controlled slide show where the user clicks on the thumbnail images and sees the larger one in the main frame. It adds interesting slide show transitions, and the option to turn them off, and optional text under the slide show controls and captions. You can add random galleries and images to your sidebar as well as posts or Pages.

Lazy-K Gallery WordPress Plugin showcases images in a gallery form with thumbnail and slide caching features, and the ability to comment on each image or folder individually. You can include the gallery on a Page or post, and create sub-galleries.

Yet another photoblog, aka YAPB, is a WordPress Plugin that converts your WordPress blog into a photoblog. There are easy uploading features and you can write posts as you normally would. Thumbnails can be easily made of the images in several different sizes. EXIF data process and output is supported as well as full i18n international support, ping services, and can work on about any WordPress Theme. If your blog is all about the images and little article content, give this one a try.

Inline Gallery for WordPress allows for multiple galleries, captions, and integration with the Rich Text Editor (WYSIWYG editor), AJAX controls, and customizable template functions.

The d13gallery WordPress Plugin allows easily embedded thumbnail image galleries inside your WordPress posts. Images inside of the site’s folder are scanned, resized, and displayed in a simple grid layout as clickable images to the larger original image.

iGallery Plugin for WordPress is a different kind of gallery WordPress Plugin. The images are stored in a folder on your server, but you control which images are seen on your blog. You create a list of your images, each on a new line with a colon between them inside of the embedded image tag, and the photographs will be presented as a row of thumbnails with one large image above them. Click on a thumbnail image and the large image changes above. You can control the size of the thumbnails and the large image.

fGallery WordPress Image Gallery Plugin allows displaying images from the server with resizing and thumbnails, easy use of a Lightbox, will allow comments on images or not, displays an album RSS feed link, allows sorting the order of the images and albums, captions, and more.

Other gallery and photo album WordPress Plugins that use images on-site include:

Online Image Hosting Service Integration with WordPress Blogs

If you store and share your images through , phpwebgallery, Zenphoto, or other online image hosting sites, there is usually a WordPress Plugin that will help you feature those images on your WordPress blog in different ways.

Flickr WordPress Plugins

The following WordPress Plugins integrate your blog with your Flickr account and images.

Flickr Photo Album for WordPress by tan tan noodles displays your Flickr photosets in your WordPress Administration Panels and allows you to control the look of how they are displayed on your WordPress Blog. You can easily insert your Flickr photographs and images into your WordPress Post edit panel and includes a lot of other powerful features.

FALBUM WordPress Plugin displays Flickr images and photosets with a lot of customization features on your WordPress blog including albums of recent images, viewing photos using tags, view tags in a cloud format, pulling EXIF data from Flickr, and much more.

Flickrspinnr WordPress Plugin creates a rotating 3D cube of your Flickr images in a sidebar widget.

Slickr Gallery WordPress Plugin is an AJAX photo gallery Plugin which allows you to bring your Flickr-hosted images and photographs into a gallery on your blog. You must have a Flickr account and a Lightbox WordPress Plugin for this Plugin to work. It also requires libcurl and XML PHP libraries on your host server.

Crossroads Plugin also works with Lightbox 2.0 and helps you add Flickr images to your WordPress posts or Pages with thumbnail images and Flickr photo comments.

Other Flickr WordPress Plugins include:

Gallery2 WordPress Plugins

The following WordPress Plugins work with images stored on .

Other Online Image Storage Services

The following WordPress Plugins work with other online image storage and sharing services.

Image Plugin Accessories

While not technically “accessories”, the following WordPress Plugins work with other Image WordPress Plugins or on their own to help you add more image features to your blog.

Fun and Helpful Image WordPress Plugins

iMax Width WordPress Plugin sets a maximum image width so large inline images won’t destroy your WordPress Theme layout and design. It adds height and width parameters to all IMG tags so the pages will load faster and conserves bandwidth times as well as the distortion caused by images loading after the text.

Lazyest Gallery Thumbs SlideShow Plugin rotates random image thumbnails from the Lazyest Gallery. It also comes as a WordPress Widget. You can control the portrait, landscape or both image types to show, the loops to run, fading delays, CSS styles, and more to create your thumbnail slide show on your WordPress blog.

Do you want your images to represent your posts? The Post Thumbs Plugin uses thumbnail images to represent your various posts on multi-post views and in the sidebar. If you have an image in your post, the Plugin will find it and convert it into a thumbnail and showcase that as a replacement for the text in a menu of images.

Rotating Images

A lot of bloggers want to feature an image that randomly rotates and changes as they watch, with each page view, or on a schedule. I’m using these in several of my blogs to display random photographs. Some WordPress Plugins and scripts which handle random image rotators include:

Lightbox Effects

Huddle Together Lightbox JS creates a lightbox effect which allows images to be seen individually or in groups, captions, has fancy visual effect and transition options to choose from, and is backwards compatible with older versions of WordPress.

WP Lightbox JS WordPress Plugin also uses Javascript to display images over the top of the current page with a “faded out” semi-transparent background. It adds a quicktag to your buttons on the Write Post panel for fast adding of the image information.

Thickbox works with the Thickbox WordPress Plugin to allow lightbox effects and more for images on your WordPress blog.

Other lightbox effect WordPress Plugins include:

Popin Effect WordPress Plugins

The popin effect creates a “window” on a layer above the page showcasing the image. Image popin effect WordPress Plugins include:

This is not representative of all the various image-oriented WordPress Plugins out there, but does give you a good sampling to try.

Do you have a favorite WordPress Plugin you use for handling and displaying images on your blog? What features are important to you and why? What do you recommend to other WordPress users and Photoblog enthusiasts?

    This is great, but way too much information! I don’t know where to start.
    I just want a plug-in that will enable me to upload pictures, provide either a popup or lightbox effect, and store the pictures in albums based on the category.

    Anything that does that?

      I don’t think this is information overload, most plugins have pros and cons which need to be tried and tested by the designer to see whether it’s a viable solution for their blog, complaining you’re hungry until someone makes you some food is just lazy. Everyone has to start somewhere, you’re no different. WordPress has made people so lazy! Takes one min to install and try a plugin!

    • Posted December 4, 2012 at 1:54 pm | Permalink

      I assume that you are referring to someone’s comment. For people new to WordPress, there is much that can easily overwhelm them. Since there are thousands of Plugins, and often two to ten to choose from to do the same thing, it can be a very intimidating and confusing process to narrow down what will work for your needs.

      Thanks for encouraging others to experiment and try. This has nothing to do with lazy as it does with the mythology around what “easy” means. For you and me, it might take seconds to figure things out with WordPress. For others, they are still figuring out what a link is and how to click it. :D

    • Posted December 4, 2012 at 8:23 pm | Permalink

      This isn’t the place to debate this, but I find it inappropriate to say that WordPress makes people lazy. I’ve seen people test drive WordPress Plugins with a vengeance, pushing them thoroughly to determine if one will work or not with their site needs. Ease of installation has nothing to do with lazy. It has to do with testing the Plugin on the site and researching whether or not it will work to meet their needs. Two different topics.

      What is fun is watching people install Plugin after Plugin, trying them all, then getting overwhelmed with the fact that they now have 50 WordPress Plugins installed and only really use 4. LOL! The whole process can be fun, intimating, easy, frustrating, complex, simple, and all sorts of things. To each their own. It’s all part of the process and everyone’s experience is different. I like honoring everyone’s unique path.

  2. Posted February 7, 2007 at 5:41 pm | Permalink

    Whoa! What a wonderful list Lorelle! Time for me to start photoblogging. ;)

    I think most would find this post as “way too much information!”… and I think the best way to get through it is to set up a “throw away blog” where you can test out all the plugins, and then you can settle with one or two which suits you better.

  3. Posted February 7, 2007 at 5:41 pm | Permalink

    You don’t need a Plugin to upload images unless you want to do a lot at the same time. Look through the list of Gallery Plugins to find one that also interacts with the popin and/or lightbox effect and try it.

    They are free and easy to install, so why not take a few minutes to give them a try to find the one you like. Each one has different features and you might find you like one more than another.

  4. Posted February 8, 2007 at 4:08 am | Permalink

    I think the only plugin you may have forgotten is Zenpress, located at http://simbul.bzaar.net/zenpress/ (and probably because it requires an additional photo gallery app to be installed – Zenphoto). Zenphoto is uniquely suited for image gallery applications in that it is fast , well coded and easy to theme. It has a great support community, and is well worth the effort. Zenphoto is located at http://www.zenphoto.org. The development team is working on integration of wordpress and zenphoto at some point, but some people on the forums have already accomplished such integration.

    Worth a look anyway. I’ve been using it for months and it’s been great.

  5. Posted February 8, 2007 at 5:16 am | Permalink

    ZenPress was mentioned, but it’s good to know that it is still going. Thanks.

  6. Posted February 8, 2007 at 5:25 am | Permalink

    This is a good summary, thanks! There are so many options out there; I wish I had this list a few months ago when I was trying to figure out what to use for my blog. I tried several, including a Picasa integration plugin (gone now, I believe), and ZenPress. I liked ZenPress the best of the separate gallery softwares/plugins I tried. But it was still early in development. (And I never could get it to integrate in a way I liked.)

    Finally I decided on Copperleaf Photolog Plugin because I can upload individually through the interface, or bulk upload with FTP. Pictures can be “cross-posted” to other posts or pages without having needing to copy-paste the link. CPL can insert the pictures as a nice layout of clickable thumbnails, or individually. With this plugin, I was able to create pseudo-galleries by picking up relevant pictures from previous posts and collecting them together onto pages. The pop-up windows will display thorough information about each picture, and this can be adjusted (by editing the code) to match the user’s needs.

  7. Posted February 8, 2007 at 5:28 am | Permalink

    Yikes, I got a bit confused with ZenPhoto and ZenPress in my earlier comment. ZenPhoto is the separate gallery software I liked, whereas ZenPress was the plugin, but it didn’t work the way I wanted. Hope that is clearer!

    I was just thinking of adding images to the “in-progress-test-site” I’m working on…thanks for this post.

    But I can’t seem to be able to find exactly what I had in mind. I’d like to be able to display thumbnails of pics in the footer or sidebar that are related to the post the user is currently reading. So Same as Related posts plugin, but for images. These images would have to be tagged of course, and the plugin would match the post tags with the pics tags.

    I think one of the plugin you mentionned kinda does something like that, but for flickr hosted images…while still not being related to the currently read post tags.

    Am i asking too much? It seems this could be easily done.

    -frédérik

  9. Posted February 8, 2007 at 7:42 am | Permalink

    Well, I just found something…but I can’t seem to be able to download it. The related-photos plugin takes on the WASABI related posts plugin…which is what I’ve been looking for…put in the option of relating images to post via common tags and I’d be in business.

  10. Posted February 8, 2007 at 5:55 pm | Permalink

    I think this is very comprehensive! And I’m surprised I read till the end!

  11. Posted February 8, 2007 at 11:05 pm | Permalink

    What a great post, thanks! I have been trying to find a good gallery with a good working WP plugin for a while now. I initially installed Gallery 2, but the WPG2 plugin was quite awkward. I also had a hard time getting Gallery seamlessly integrated into my blog and manually removing the headers/footers was a pain.
    This post pointed my attention to Zenphoto and the WP ZenPress plugin. Wow, this is what I have been looking for: a no nonsense, clean gallery with a nicely working plugin. Great!

  12. Posted February 11, 2007 at 2:07 pm | Permalink

    Lorelle,
    Thanks for all this info. I’m overwhelmed and am seeking a solution with the FCKeditor. I’d like the plugin to batch upload images to the server, and then let FCKeditor grab images from that dir. If there’s an image editor as well, that would be sweet! Any solution come to mind?
    ps/ Your site is nicely organized :)

  13. Posted February 21, 2007 at 6:30 am | Permalink

    You can also try Plogger with the PloggerPress plugin for WP.

    What a great list of photo plugins. Thank you for taking the time to create such a comprehensive list.

    Are there no plugins to assist with the captioning of photos? I’ve found workarounds that involve skills I don’t have and have looked all over the WP support site but find nothing but other people needing the same plugin.

  15. Posted March 9, 2007 at 6:37 am | Permalink

    Captioning is a design issue rather than a “code” issue, but then, without the HTML code, captioning doesn’t work. So it’s a tough one. Some of the gallery Plugins listed here offer captioning, but captions on individual posts is a problem.

    The problem isn’t with WordPress or the code. It is with the lack of Internet Explorer and other browsers being standardized ALL the same way. One caption design that works in Firefox breaks in IE 6. Fix it to work in IE 6 and it breaks in IE7, and other browsers. I’ve been looking for YEARS but the browsers non-adherence to web standards is the breaking point.

    Really like your helpful blog regarding all things WordPress. Was wondering if you know of a sidebar widget/plugin that can take random images that are set to the same dimension eg, width, and can be linked from a separate/specified folder just for such purpose? That way they won’t get mixed with my normal “Uploads” folder, and stay within the width of my “Sidebar”? A big ask, but heh, why not? ;-) Appreciate any suggestions you may have…

  18. Posted May 6, 2007 at 12:31 pm | Permalink

    Some of the Plugins mentioned in the article will do this, as will others mentioned in Random WordPress Plugins: Rotating Banners, Header Art, Images, Quotes, and Content on Your Blog. See the photos in my sidebar? Reload the page and it will change. All images are stored in a folder on my server and I’m using an image rotator script mentioned in the Random WordPress Plugins article to generate these images in my sidebar.

    I think that’s what you want, right?

  19. Posted May 8, 2007 at 3:41 pm | Permalink

    Thank a bunch for posting. I’m new to WordPress, and I’ve been trying to find a pretty and size-efficient way to display images. Your post explains the many different ways to display images and image host service; it gives me a better idea regarding what each is and helps me decide what I’m looking for.

    Again, thank you!

    Is there any plugin that would let my registered useres to post pictures to my gallery

  21. Posted June 13, 2007 at 1:44 pm | Permalink

    After reading this article I thought I’d try out Gallery2 with the WPG2 plugin as they seemed like the most powerful solution and would allow my little site some room to grow. Unfortunately things didn’t work out so well. You can read about it in my WordPress Image Gallery Gotchas post. Thanks for the comment Lorelle.

    I eventually gave up on the Gallery2 and WPG2 combo and decided to use a different solution. You can read about it in this Image Gallery Plugin Recommendation article and you can view the results in this image gallery.

    Hope it helps. Thanks again.

    I’m planning to create a blog with many bloggers. Which every blogger can upload and display their images. They can their own images, but can’t see others blogger images.
    Is there any plugins or just a tip to do that?

  23. Posted June 20, 2007 at 11:25 am | Permalink

    You want a blog where contributors can add images that no one else sees? I can’t think of a reason why anyone would do that, so you might have a first here. Thus, I doubt there are WordPress Plugins for that. Still, check out WordPress Plugins for Multiple Blogger Blogs for options on working with more than one contributor on a blog.

  24. Posted June 20, 2007 at 8:52 pm | Permalink

    Sorry, maybe I’m not clear enough.
    I want that every blogger when creating a post, they can only see and choose they own uploaded images, not others.
    I test this with 3 bloggers. A,B and C.
    When user A and B uploaded their images, user C can select and choose user A and B images.
    I like to forbid that.
    So user C when creating a post, can only select his/her own uploaded images.
    Imagine if I have 10 users, and each user uploaded 10 images, that will be 100 images.

  25. Posted June 20, 2007 at 9:59 pm | Permalink

    In the recommended article above for multiple bloggers, there are some WordPress Plugins which control user access levels – what different bloggers can and cannot do on a blog. Some can do more and others are very restricted, and all user level permissions in between.

    Go through them to see which one might help you with this specific issue. I definitely understand it better now, but I’ve not run into that problem. The Plugins, though, may help. Or contact the WordPress Support Forum or WP-Pro Mailing list for help creating one that will do this for you. Let me know what you find out!

    Thank you very much for providing such a wealth of knowledge to a wordpress newbie such as myself. I have a question: can any of these plugins place images in multiple galleries? for example I have uploaded “soccer” images to a “soccer” gallery, but I would also like to have these “soccer” images available in a “sports” gallery. I know that you can do that with posts, but not sure about how to go about doing it with image galleries. Thanks for your help.

  29. Posted June 21, 2007 at 12:07 pm | Permalink

    I believe they can all be categorized, as the photo albums are really blog posts or pages, depending upon how they are set up. You’ll have to check with the different WordPress Plugins to find which one you like that will best work for your needs. There are a lot of choices.

  30. Posted June 22, 2007 at 9:09 am | Permalink

    Thanks for the great pointers saved a lot of time looking around.

    I recently posted a comment about tagging images with different categories so that they can be seen in different categories. I have searched around looking for a plugin that will help me do this. I do not want subgalleries or anything hierarchical, I would just like to tag images with different categories so that they will show up in multiple galleries. I feel like I have looked everywhere and have gotten nowhere. Any help would be appreciated.

  36. Posted September 8, 2007 at 2:50 pm | Permalink

    I’m sure that you put a lot of research and effort into this article, and very recently, too. Already, many of the links don’t work, some of the plug-in you feature are not supposed any more, and when you find one that you can still get to and may be supported, the examples don’t work. It must be even more frustrating for you than it is for me. WordPress may be “free,” and it may be a reasonably workable product. The community that write plug-ins for it, however, contains a lot of very flaky people. I have installed several hugely hypes plug-in that did not operate as advertised, caused problems somewhere else on the program, or simply didn’t work. I have yet to find even one set of instructions, Spartan or not, that were even very readable, let alone imparted any actual information. I spent thirty years of my life developing software, from being a monkey coder to being a program manager. I don’t want to do that any more. I just want to write regular words. These people give the outstanding concepts of “free” and “Open Source” a large purple and black eye. Somehow, every yahoo that can write a blog full of typos thinks that they can write software. Too many of them equate “free” with “unprofessional” and “starkly amateur.” WordPress very badly needs to figure out a way to keep this issue from taking their product into the toilet flush cycle.

    I frequently share your opinion as I pour through the offerings in both WordPress Plugins and Themes, especially when it comes to documentation, which is why I wrote: A Love Letter to WordPress Plugin Authors and Tips for Writing Good WordPress Tips.

    As for links going south, that’s a problem of the web since the beginning, not a reflection of the quality of this blog or WordPress. I do what I can when someone tells me to update links, and I slap the WordPress community members frequently to remind them update links and improve their support options.

    WordPress is growing and changing a lot recently, with the incredible improvements in testing and development that came with WordPress.com. In the future, it will be more backwards compatitible, but right now, they are breaking their own rules as they build it to be better and more stable, and Plugin authors and Theme designers are doing their best to keep up with these, but many fall by the wayside. WordPress is a fast evolving entity that, in some ways, got too big too fast. But they are dedicated to give the best, and with the best comes with some bloody noses and bruises.

    Other than that. Welcome to the world of open source. It’s very different from the corporate world of coding and programming you may have been accustomed to. As one of the early code-monkeys myself, I still struggle with the, shall we say, lack of discipline in the ranks.

    Now, to find out which of the links you found that didn’t work. Thanks for letting me know.

    I’ve been using open source software for a half-dozen years or perhaps a bit longer, Lorelle. I have also contributed time and expertise to some of the packages. I’m not new to it, I’m just new to this level of cavalier attitudes toward the responsibilities that come with being able to say, “I wrote some software.”

    Once you have said that, you need to support it and keep up things like your links. You have to not be sloppy. Testing it would also be nice. Once is not a pattern. All of that said, I like WordPress. I like PHPBB2. I like a lot of the open source stuff, and use it. The people who write the package itself can get into a lot of trouble, though, by paying no attention at all to the quality of add-ons or plug-ins. WordPress is having that problem as we type.

    It does absolutely no good to gather a good team, write a good product, and have its reputation take big hits because that same team cannot put the effort into controlling the software extras that are often written by rank amateurs, or worse. Take a look at the process used at PHPBB. They do it right.

    So why not join the WordPress volunteer community and help change and improve things. Maybe we don’t have someone of your caliber and standards and we need you?

    The problem with a volunteer community is that is it only as good as its members, which changes as people come and go and interests change. I think that the WordPress Community has growth into a powerful, creative, and wonderful group and while some Plugin authors start creating Plugins because of new enthusiasm and the easy process, then lose interest, is their problem, not WordPress. Anyone can create a WordPress Plugin. WordPress offers how to techniques, tips, standards, and free hosted storage, alerting the public, users, and authors of updates and news through various sources all the time. We aren’t babysitters. There are THOUSANDS of Plugins out there.

    Judging WordPress based on a few Plugins is a shame because there is so much that is good. Still, if you want to make a difference, we are always eager for new blood!

    By the way, I still can’t find the link(s) that you had problems with. Could you be more specific as there are a lot of links on this page to check. Thank you.

    Lorelle,

    Your post was very helpful and I stumbled upon it looking for a solution for my blog. Not sure if I found all the answers I need.

    I was wondering if it’s possible to create an “image landing page” for when thumbnails are clicked, the full size image is loaded on the blog on it’s own page with the sidebar, header, footer, etc.. Just like the google search feature where you can have the search results displayed right on your blog.

    Is this doable and if so do you have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

  41. Posted October 2, 2007 at 8:53 am | Permalink

    I guess my question wasn’t good enough b/c it was removed. Thanks anyways.

  42. Posted October 2, 2007 at 10:43 pm | Permalink

    Since I’ve been on the road and unable to check my blog comments in a timely fashion lately, I found your comment in the comment spam filter. I removed it from there, as I try to do with as many comments as I can catch. I do not delete comments because they are not “good enough”.

    As for your question, I believe that some of the Plugins listed give you that option, in a way. The lightbox Plugins allow the page to be “seen” underneath. Some of the album Plugins display the images on a full screen. But in general, it’s not an easy task and it doesn’t “look” like what you want most of the time.

    I’d love it if we could find a way. Other than creating a specific post for each large version image, and wrapping the link to the post around the thumbnail, I haven’t found a good way to do this. But keep hunting. Just because I haven’t found it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist or that someone will write a WordPress Plugin to handle this. You could always ask on the WordPress Support Forums.

  43. Posted October 3, 2007 at 11:39 am | Permalink

    I do apologize. I did not mean to get a complete ass to you. I really appreciate all the help you give WordPress bloggers.

    What a great post, thanks! I have been trying to find a good gallery with a good working WP plugin for a while now. I initially installed Gallery 2, but the WPG2 plugin was quite awkward. I also had a hard time getting Gallery seamlessly integrated into my blog and manually removing the headers/footers was a pain

    I enjoy your blog because you cover so many different aspects–I am new to Word Press. Wondering if you (or probably more accurately, your readers) have found a particular plug-in that works well with PhotoBucket or Picasa. Photobucket has an automatic feature for a slideshow but I hate it. I know you listed a variety but wondering if you have any suggestions?

  53. Posted February 19, 2008 at 9:13 am | Permalink

    @ GG:

    I do not use either of those services, and the reason for not making specific recommendations here is that what one Plugin offers may not meet your needs, while another might. These are free, so what does it hurt to try them out yourself to find out if they meet your specific needs?

  54. Posted February 26, 2008 at 4:33 am | Permalink

    I can highly recommend EasyGals. It displays thumbnails of all images attached to a post or page.

  56. Posted March 17, 2008 at 9:11 am | Permalink

    @ xleon:

    I don’t know. Do you need an image gallery? Does your host allow you to add Plugins? You have to check the requirements of your host and match them to the requires of the Plugins in order to work. Then there is the usability. Is this one harder or easier for you to work with? Does it have the features you need? Does it give you what you want?

    I have no idea which one will be the best one for you. Only you can know that. That’s why I offered choices and options in this article.

    Posted March 27, 2008 at 9:22 am | Permalink

    Lorelle, once again, your site has proved extremely useful. I am adding pictures to a page of mine and wanted to know the best way to do it. I searched for “add pictures to my WordPress post” and found all of this valuable information.

    When you do your analysis and reviews, one feature would help me out which you may (or may not) care to implement :) You have a great deal of trust with your user community and I am one of those people. Often, the lists of plug-ins is so numerous that it is overwhelming. For instance, right now, I just want to know how to have a thumbnail on the page and when a user clicks it, it gets a bit bigger. I just read about several packages above that can do this. If I go implement and research all of these, I’ll lose a whole day.

    I would love it if you said, “I use this and it works for me.” I trust you. I would just go use that right away and not have to do any investigation :)

    Anyway, only a suggestion and I am very grateful for all of these links…four of which I am going to investigate right now.

    @ richardinthemoment:

    When there is a WordPress Plugin that I totally believe in and trust, you will know it. Unfortunately, what works for me does not work for everyone. This month long series of articles on WordPress Plugins was designed to offer options and suggestions. I have yet to find the “perfect” image or gallery Plugin, so you are getting the options available at the time I wrote the Plugin.

    What works for you won’t work for someone else. These are free. You try them, you find out if it works for you. If not, you try something else. Some people need to have Flickr posting capabilities, some host their own images, some need a lightbox effect, others don’t.

    I do the best I can to make general recommendations on the Plugins I find, but the rest is up to you. But when I find one that I think is the “best” you will know it in a minute. I haven’t found it in an image handling Plugin yet.

  60. Posted March 28, 2008 at 6:47 am | Permalink

    @ Rufas:

    Interesting. I recently updated this page, though I admit that WordPres 2.5 does change things. Are you using that version?

    As for what you are asking, anything that uploads ALL of the images with that directory would be way too much for anyone to work with. Personally, I have hundreds of images in that directory, and I would not want to unleash them all without order and structure on my readers.

    However, if you are keeping track of development in WordPress, you would learn of the new gallery feature in WordPress 2.5 which will display whichever images you set up in the gallery on a single post. It’s in the core of WordPress and does not require a Plugin.

    Thank you again for your comment, and if you found specific sites not working or the Plugin discontinued, specific information would be extremely helpful to update the post.

    As for those website that don’t work:
    - Easiest WordPress Gallery Plugin
    - imgViewJX WordPress Plugin
    - Lazy Gallery Plugin
    - W3IMAGES Gallery
    - Yellow Swordfish’s Popup Image Gallery WordPress Plugin (Not found)
    - Inline Gallery for WordPress

    So far I only checked that area, as when I hunting for plugins.

    BTW, I don’t know you had update this page, because there is no “Last Updated” and I saw “posted on February 7, 2007″ on the bottom, so…

    Ay-ay-ay. 2.5 is giving too much grief. I used to use Photopress, and now I think I am returning to it. 2.5 Bugs with batch (multiple selected files) upload, and numerous ‘failed import’ warnings seem to be plaguing 2.5 users – it’s all over the forums. There is also no clear instructions on the WordPress site about how to use the Media Manager…. plus there is no way (is tehre?) to sort images once uploaded, or select a discrete [gallery] as they seem to all get glommed into one… it is very frustrating. I would really appreciate an introduction into the efficient use of the new feature, but until this happens – I will revert to plugins – and continue to be amazed that with so much talented plugin development has gone to waste with WP’s own offering. Please, help us out Lorelle! What to do!!!

    @ andyro:

    Using the gallery shortcode in the WordPress Codex includes parameters and information on selecting post specific images and setting the order in which they appear – though you can control that yourself by naming the images in the order in which you want them to appear.

    While there is a lot of talk of problems with WordPress 2.5, there is a huge amount of silence from those for which it is working.

    I’ll be coming out with something soon, but for now, the Codex does have the basic answers.

    Need help with new gallery option in WP 2.5. I foudn the gallery tab in Add media in Write page. BUt I can’t figure out where or how one creates a gallery. Thought maybe that required a separate plug-in, but then saw your note that none is required. Codex entry didn’t make this any clearer. Can you explain how this is used? Thanks for any help you can offer.

  72. Posted May 10, 2008 at 7:45 am | Permalink

    @ dcw:

    On the Write Post Panel, there are a small row of icons at the top of the Edit box to the right. Click Images and you will see an option to upload more than one image at a time (or you can do it one at a time) if you have Flash enabled. Save the “changes” once you upload and then switch to the Gallery Tab. There the information is on how to insert the gallery into the post.

    The images are all associated with their post ID number, the post you are working on at the time you upload the images. It’s their “folder” so to speak. Using the gallery shortcode, you can crate a gallery of images with the post ID number.

    Unfortunately, the only ways to find the Post ID number with WordPress 2.5 if you have pretty permalinks enabled is when you write the post. Hit SAVE and the address bar of your browser will show the post ID in the URL or if you hover over the post title in the Manage Posts panel and have the Status Bar turned on in your browser. Hopefully, the Post ID number will be restored or shown better in future versions.

    @ olivier lalin:

    That turns things into ecommerce. Look up Plugins with that keyword (and be sure and use the word “plugin” not “plug in” as that is something you plug into the wall and I know you want to find a solution) and keywords like “store” and “selling photographs”. You might find something, but I’ve not see anything. Which doesn’t mean much. I can’t keep up with the thousands of WordPress Plugins out there, and I only monitor free Plugins. There are services which sell paid Plugins which may offer this service.

  79. Posted July 2, 2008 at 2:03 pm | Permalink

    @ Venesa:

    Depends upon your blog program. The self-hosted version of WordPress will allow images to be added to comments, though many find it really annoying and the images tend to not be well formed, ruining the look of the comment section unless special care is given to its design. WordPress.com does not allow images in comments, nor do many other blog programs.

  80. Posted July 2, 2008 at 2:09 pm | Permalink

    @ Jesus:

    I just want to understand how you think this is going to work. You want to display an image on the front page of your blog that will link to another image on your blog when the user clicks on the post title? You have a strange way of thinking about how blogs work. :D

    The front page of your blog is traditionally where people read your blog posts in chronological order. Today, it is not the most important, nor necessarily the most visited page on your site compared to the rest of your pages. Most people enter through your site on other pages, and if they see what they like, they may click through to the front page, but most likely they will click around on your most recent posts, most popular posts, related posts, and post categories. But people are still obsessed with the looks of the front page of their blogs.

    You can set up a custom field (in the Write Post Panel) that displays an image that is not in your blog post. When people click through, they will see whatever you put in the blog post content area (in the Write Post Panel editor). You can read more about this in the WordPress Codex Using Custom Fields article, where you can also find a lot more information on using WordPress. There are Plugins that will help you do this, but this is the most simple method and a built in function of WordPress.

    @ richard bolen:

    I do not respond to blog comments via email, as few bloggers do. The Plugins mentioned in the article are mostly for posts not sidebars, and the one that works best for you is the one you prefer. There are too many considerations to be considered to make such a recommendation. Will you host the slideshows on your server or offsite? Do you want just the images to the link or a full player? Do you want Flash or not?

    The Plugins described in this article are free. Try them. You like them, use them. You don’t, try another. The Plugins are as reliable as their authors ability to maintain them against growing changes in WordPress programming. PodPress is the most popular, but there are others that people like more.

    Good luck.

    We have created an image commenting plugin for WordPress.

    With this plugin, you can allow users to select an area on an image and then use it to make a WordPress comment. The comment is recorded in the regular WordPress comment area along with the selected little image.

    Even better, you can now see the image along with the comment, too. We built this plugin because we wanted to be able to show image comments both in the comments section and on top of the actual image. In our humble opinion, this is a much more elegant way to capture comments than you’ll find on most image sites (e.g., Flickr – we love Flickr, mind you, it’s just that we think this image commenting plugin rocks!).

    If you are looking to get feedback on images, want to run a caption contest, or just provide a fun way for your visitors to interact with images, this plugin is for you.

    Oh – almost forgot – you find the plugin here: Image Commenting Plugin for WordPress.

    p.s. I hope this isn’t considered spam – just wanted to let folks know about it – and it’s free, free free! Oh, sorry. Got a little carried away there. Back to your regularly scheduled programming.

There are also Plugins which incorporate images into various parts of a WordPress blog, such as the excerpt, post title, next to the post title, and so on.

      There are a few gallery WordPress Plugins that might do that. You’ll have to keep digging to find the one you want. That can also be implemented with CSS, if you have access to a smart web designer. However, the effect they have done is with Flash, which is another alternative you can try, too. Sorry I can’t be more specific, but many do this, but the one that will work for you is one that will meet your needs.

    Any way to simply link a thumbnail photo in WP gallery to a page URL? I am satisfied with the simple gallery funtion, but I would like to click on the image and be taken to the appropriate page. Thanks!

    • Posted July 15, 2009 at 3:16 pm | Permalink

      There are Category and Post Image Plugins that convert an image to a clickable link to a post, Page or category – but you can also create this manually, wrapping images with links. Not sure what your need is, but that is a starting point.

    I recently posted a comment about tagging images with different categories so that they can be seen in different categories. I have searched around looking for a plugin that will help me do this. I do not want subgalleries or anything hierarchical, I would just like to tag images with different categories so that they will show up in multiple galleries. I feel like I have looked everywhere and have gotten nowhere. Any help would be appreciated.

      Have you asked on the WordPress Support Forum? On Twitter? There are a lot of WordPress Plugins now for handling the new micro-tagging and categorization process for the new gallery in WordPress. I’m sure that there is something that can help you, I’m just not sure which one as I don’t work with these much.

      Auto Thumbnailing is in all modern versions of WordPress. So I’m not sure what your issue is. You can upload your images through WordPress in batches.

    Dear Lorelle, I’m looking for a WordPress Plugin or something that would prevent visitors from downloading the images on a blog. My client is posting images on her blog, but she doesn’t want people to be able to download them. Is there a way to do this in a WordPress blog? Thanks and this is a great and helpful post. Diane

    • Posted September 28, 2009 at 4:08 pm | Permalink

      Easier said than done. Currently, there is no easy method for preventing downloads, as downloading as temp files is part of the process of viewing a web page. You can only make the copying of files a bit difficult and have a very clear, actionable copyright policy. Watermarks, hidden or visible, are also helpful in preventing, or at least warning, copiers. Check with http://www.plagiarismtoday.com for more help on that subject.

      Hey Diane,

      I was looking for the same thing and I found a plug-in called “No Right Click Images Plugin.” It’s not ironclad, as the user can still save a pic to a file if they don’t have javascript enabled, but it does prevent most abusers.

    • Posted January 28, 2011 at 3:33 pm | Permalink

      There are much better ways to protect your images than blocking right clicks, which can be painful for power bloggers since some image blocking right click scripts block all right clicks, defeating the power tools of the browser and inconveniencing the user. Try digital watermarking and tracking programs so you know where your images are when they leave home, and look for other options than this to protect your images online.

    Hello, I’m working on setting up a photo-heavy blog. I want to be able to have several albums/galleries based on tags. So all images would be tagged with things like location, theme, date, etc., and then I want to be able to create an album or gallery that showcases all the images with a particular tag. Is there a plug in that does this fairly easily? I’m setting this up for my boss and he wants something he can do on his own. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    • Posted November 19, 2009 at 9:32 pm | Permalink

      There are many options on how to do this, including doing this with WordPress Plugins. However, you might want to look into the various WordPress Themes designed for photobloggers first as they have most of this functionality built in.

    Lets say ive been taking some photos and want to show 6 of them.
    Is there a plugin that can display these 6 pictures, like in a (different) gallery in every single post.
    I dont mind if one is big and you have to click or touch the other pictures to be able to see them.
    Or like on this swedish newpaper, where they can hide as many pictures as they want over eachother.

      You do not need a Plugin. Just provide a link to the login and set WordPress up (Settings) to permit user registration. You might want to explore BuddyPress as an option for such participation.

      Please do not leave your email in blog posts within the content area. It’s fine within the comment form, but not for the public and harvesters to see. I’ve removed it.

      As for the “rectangle” you wish to add, you cannot add frames nor iframes to WordPress.com blogs. For tips on how to create a blockquote or other blog bling on WordPress.com blogs, see my series on WordPress.com Blog Bling.

      However, I recommend that other than blockquotes for quoting cited content, you restrict over designing your content. Other than headings, people really don’t like it any more and find it hard to read. They want to get through the content, not be interrupted or distracted.

    Hi Lorelle –

    Great list here! I don’t see exactly what I need, and maybe you can point me in the right direction.

    I need a WP plugin that creates a image scroller that duplicates the sponsors gallery (in Flash) found on partnershipsinaction. When creating one, the user should be able to add images either by uploading from their desktop or from the WP Media library.

    I’ve looked over a number of scrollers, none of which seem to fit this bill. Either they have thumbnails as part of the display, require clicking to move to the next image and/or show only one image at a time.

    If you’re not familiar with an existing plugin, can you recommend a skilled freelance plugin developer?

    Thank you so much for your attention to this.

I would like to have a slideshow on my blog displaying that RSS feed (rather than the Picasa embed options where lots of corny Google stuff comes with it). If possible, there should be a link to open the slideshow in full screen in a new window.

    Do you know of any plug-ins that would support these features? Thanks Lorelle!

    • Posted October 3, 2010 at 6:44 pm | Permalink

      I always reply to comments. At least comments that deserve a response. Am I missing something?

      There are a ton of WordPress Plugins that do that kind of thing. They all do different kinds of things in different ways, but they are all free and worth experimenting with to see which one has the feature you like. Personally, I don’t like slideshows where I don’t control the images I want to see in the order I want to see them. Thus a lot of people who once did slideshows are now opting for a lightbox effect on the images with an option to slideshow them. People, event, and wedding photographers like the slideshows but also still like giving people the chance to look at the times one by one. Give them a try to see which one works for you.

    Hi Lorelle,

    I know this post was written 4 years ago so I understand it can’t be up to date on every single plugin you wrote about. I’m the founder of PhpWebGallery and we still receive some requests about the “Photon” integration and since this blog post is still very visible, I suppose it’s relevant that I give you an update.

    In the last 4 years, several things happened to the PhpWebGallery project and its integration with WordPress:

    * PhpWebGallery changed its name to become Piwigo
    * Photon is not available anymore
    * PiwigoPress is a WordPress plugin to create a widget in your sidebar with thumbnails from Piwigo
    * PiwigoMedia is a WordPress plugin to insert thumbnails from Piwigo into your WordPress posts

    I have recently wrote a post on my blog about Piwigo and WordPress integration with PiwigoMedia. I hope my comment on your blog will help users who search a feature rich photo gallery software and want to integrate it with their WordPress site/blog :-)

    I’m moving my site over to WP and just want to batch upload files to WP. WordPress Batch Uploader WordPress Plugin no longer links to a page, so is this plugin no longer available?

    I simply want to batch upload to the gallery and go back and select photos one at a time for each post/page at which point I’ll add any additional information (alt tags, etc.). I’d rather not have to search my directory each time I want to upload a photo (and upload them one at a time). We don’t have a photoblog, just a big website w/ loads of photos: more than 1,000.

    It’d be nice if I found a plugin that also allow our users to upload photos with their comments.

    • Posted June 10, 2011 at 10:39 am | Permalink

      You don’t need such a Plugin any longer. You can upload tons of images at a single time with the built-in image uploader in WordPress. There are also other alternatives to choose from which do other things in addition to just uploading. Give those a try from the WordPress Plugin Directory.

      There are also several Plugins that allow people to submit content to your site, including photographs, as they would become blog posts. Experiment to find one that works right for you.

      Please see What Do You Do When Someone Steals Your Content and Free Photos for Your Blog and NEVER use images that aren’t yours or covered by copyright permissions and licenses that do not allow your use of them. Watermarks are a BIG clue that says “DO NOT USE.”

      Please respect the ownership and copyrights of images as much as you would text. It is illegal to remove watermarks from images. Such action could result in fines, penalties, and your site being shut down if the copyright holder decided to pursue it.

    And there are ZERO instructions in the plugin itself (settings) and no place to set up this page that appears to be missing. The plugin author IGNORES all requests for help, and he offers no instructions at his plugin site.

    Plugins no longer “supported”. What does that really mean? It means WordPress will suck you in with blog propaganda to make you work your tail off building sites, especially with complex sidebars. Like drug pushers, WordPress will shamelessly promote but not regulate them nor plan to maintain compliance with all these plugins WordPress itself promotes in its CODEX. Then, when WordPress alters the system and jacks the carpet out from under you and no longer “supports” the plugins they promote in their own CODEX… you like a stupid slave have to come back and work your own UNPAID tail off in a desperate attempt to find a way to rebuild your i.e., completely destroyed sidebars. This is bad enough if you are just building the site for yourself, but I REALLY REALLY fell sorrow for anyone who used WordPress to build sites for clients who gets a phone call in the morning that his client’s web site is shot to s*** because WordPress “upgraded” (is that an upgrade? or a DOWN-grade?) and no longer “supports” the plugins they PROMOTE in their own Codex, and now you can just go f** yourself. Talk about contempt for your users. Talk about a SCAM. Falsetto: Oh, we’re so sorry you that problem, but we may no longer “support” the plugins we suckered you into using by posting them in our Codex… go complain to the plugin developer and kick HIS ass.”

    • Posted December 28, 2011 at 6:27 pm | Permalink

      That is a lot of venom on a blog that is not officially connected with the WordPress Foundation. I am a volunteer for WordPress. I do not work for WordPress, nor have I ever. I’m sure that you don’t care much about the facts right now as you are clearly in an emotional state, but for posterity, let’s clarify some things.

      If you are developing websites on WordPress, you need to understand how WordPress works regarding such issues.

      1. WordPress Plugins are no longer featured in the WordPress Codex, a volunteer, community project to provide documentation for using WordPress, as of three years or so ago because it became too much work for the documentation team to maintain the Plugin list once the WordPress Plugin Directory was developed and stable. It is the long standing policy of the WordPress Codex to not support or endorse any Plugin or Theme except those that come with WordPress by default. It has nothing to do with anything you are talking about.

      2. WordPress Foundation does not support WordPress Plugins nor is it responsible for them or usage of any Plugins. These are created by volunteers, business people, and developers and offered free of charge to the public. The public is not required to use any of them. Such usage is the responsibility of the user.

      3. WordPress Plugin and Theme development is the responsibility of the authors who create them. It is up to them to support or update them. Many fall by the wayside as the person gets interested in other things. That’s just how life is. The WordPress Foundation works hard to keep the WordPress Plugin and Theme Directories updated with the latest information, support issues, and reports as they are available. Updating Plugins and Themes are the responsibility of the authors, not WordPress, so if you are using a Plugin that broke, it is either an issue with the Plugin or a conflict with the Theme or another Plugin. Help begins at the author’s site, then the WordPress Support Forum, with information (if available) to help in the Directories, not here.

      4. As a developer/designer, it is essential to stay updated on core, Plugin and Theme changes on sites you design, develop, or manage for customers. It is also your responsibility to either backup or teach your clients to backup their sites completely before upgrading or making changes, and on a regular basis. It is also your responsibility to charge clients for maintenance and repairs as part of your agreement. Yes, there is a known issue with the current release of WordPress which I believe has been fixed, but it is the responsibility of the Plugin and Theme developers to stay on top of core development changes, and yours to also stay updated if your work depends upon it.

      5. The key places to have posted such a response are on the WordPress Support Forum, WordPress IRC chat, in a blog post or social media services, WordPress Ideas, a private email to a WordPress Foundation employee, the WordPress Trac (reporting specific bugs and issues), or in a note or comment to the Plugin author. I’m glad to have provided a place for you to vent, but this isn’t the place.

      While I’m sure that whatever I say will just infuriate you more, you are talking to a brick wall. I cannot help you, nor forward your complaints to the “right” people. I’m sorry if a Plugin I wrote about in 2007 is causing you problems in 2011. I’m sorry you can’t find the help you need which caused you to turn here and vent, but I can’t help you. I can only direct you to those who might be able to help.

      WordPress is not “mine.” It is “ours” and it improves because of a community effort and passion for what WordPress means and gives us. People are designing websites on software that is free of charge, using Themes and Plugins that are also mostly free of charge, all created and given away after many hours and lost sleep with little expectation of return. What was once only available to those with the experience, training, and financial wherewithal to afford is now created on the back of free tools. A minor glitch in an upgrade (and this one was very minor as WordPress Plugins should have been updated two years ago to accommodate this change – those that weren’t broke – a longer advance notice than most) is really not enough justification for your response. I’m sorry you don’t see the bigger picture.

      Please remember that there are hundreds of dollars (and higher) programs for designing and developing websites that you can choose. There are also hosted platforms and proprietary publishing platforms. They have a higher learning curve, and often more frustrations, but you are under no obligation to continue using WordPress.

      Again, I’m sorry you had an unfortunate experience.

    • Posted June 5, 2012 at 8:27 am | Permalink

      Many, though you are thinking archaic. WordPress allows you to upload images and attach them to specific posts, which becomes “albums” in the old fashioned sense of things. No Plugin required. The uploader and gallery is built in with better options than the lightbox effect. There are many Plugins which expand upon the native feature of WordPress, and NextGen is a favorite.

    I host many photos for people on a few of my websites but i have to keep entering there name and i would like a way i can upload 10 photos and tell the plugin who took them and that would show when i inserted the images on pages.

    If you know please let me know.

    • Posted November 8, 2013 at 5:04 pm | Permalink

      I recommend adding the photographer’s name to the file when you copy and save it, before uploading to WordPress. Windows, and I assume Mac, has a feature in the file manager (Windows Explorer) to select a group of files and rename the first one, which will rename all of them, and you can add the photographer’s name at that time, or use Remaster or another program to help you change file names en mass.

      The file name is automatically imported by default as the “title” of the image when you upload it, therefore, the photographer’s name on the original file would become the title. You could have them named “Closeup of a Rose – photo by Sally Sparrow” or “Rose bud closeup – photo copyright Sally Sparrow” ensuring the copyright holder’s name stays with the photograph on the file name as well as the title.

      I do not know of a WordPress Plugin that does what you ask. Might be one out there, but I’m not familiar with it.
