Batch Image Uploader WordPress Plugin and Image Plugins

Mogrify has created the Batch Image Uploader WordPress Plugin for those with full version WordPress blogs frustrated with the loss of the ability to upload more than one image at a time to their WordPress blog.

There are a few configurable options and features. The plugin is a simple web form with a series of file upload chooser controls. You can choose to have the images resized to fit a certain maximum height and width; this happens automatically upon upload. You can dynamically add more form controls at the click of a button, so you can upload as many files as you need at any time. And you can configure how many are displayed on the page by default.

When WordPress first came out, it featured an Image Upload FTP feature that uploaded one or more images at a time. It was limiting and not really helpful, but it was fast and worked. The new Upload Images feature with “gallery” browse is much more helpful, but it is limited to uploading one image at a time, something I’ve found incredibly frustrating.

Mogrify Batch Image Uploader WordPress Plugin for uploading multiple images to WordPressThe Batch Image Uploader WordPress Plugin is simple and fast to use. In seconds I uploaded four images to the wp-content/photos directory on my full version WordPress blog. Relatives links to the photographs popped up automatically for me to copy and paste into the neighboring Write Post panel.

What is frustrating, however, is that the images do not appear in the Upload Images and Files section of the Write Post panel, so unless you copy the links to the images before you click away from the Upload Images tab, you will need an FTP browser to find your images again.

Still, if you upload a lot of images, this is a sweet add-on to bring multiple image uploading to your WordPress blog.

If you are serious about uploading and managing images with your WordPress blog, try’s Imagemanager WordPress Plugin available for WordPress 2+ blogs. It integrates the stand alone PHP ImageManager + Editor with your full version WordPress blog. The ImageManager provides an interface for browsing and uploading image files on/to your server. The Editor allows for some basic image manipulations such as, cropping, rotation, flip, and scaling.

There are a wide range of various image viewing, uploading, and editing WordPress Plugins available. See the Image WordPress Plugins list on the WordPress Codex, the online manual for WordPress users.

    I’ve been looking for something like this, but I wanted something that showed up in the browser. If it doesn’t then you might as well just use the FTP software that you used to upload WordPress to your server!
    The resizing is a good feature though.

      You will have to talk to the Plugin author and check their site or the WordPress Plugin Directory.

While some advocate creating a custom php script or using RSS to import your content, and there is even a site that will purportedly help you with this task, I found cutting and pasting from the browser window was sufficient. Uploading all those photos that you may have on your old site was trickier. I recommend a WP plugin called Batch Image Upload which I found referenced on Lorelle on WordPress’s site. […]
