IMAGES: I've just arrived in the wordpress community, and am finding this topic a litle hard to come to grips with.
I'd like multiple image uploads, and find the plug-in library and the supporting detail a little hard to get sure I have a current version, and to not overkill (first load this, then do this, then this etc).
I have some other preferences. I'd love
*on the fly resizing/cropping for single images
*and resizing for batch mode.
I have started with the list at http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugins/Images
Photopress has this to say: http://familypress.net/photopress/
Photopress is a plugin that adds a set of helper tools to WordPress to make working with images easier. It adds a pop-up uploader and a pop-up image browser to the posting page, a groovy random image function for your template, and a simple album to display the photos you’ve uploaded.
Latest version: Download photopress.zip or photopress.tar.gz.
Photopress works with both WordPress 1.5.2 and 2.0. It works both with and without the Rich Text Editor in WP 2.0. You must have the GD module for PHP installed and working, but it should let you know if you don’t"
2.0 is a good start, unsure what GD is.
And this: http://www.animalbeach.net/aniga/
ANIga (v0.30) is a picture gallery wordpress plugin. Its integrated in the WP posts system and uses the WP comments for pictures.
This is an early release of this plugin. Some things might not work properly, some features are still missing. USE AT OWN RISK! I appreciate any feedback!
* WP 2.0.4 (could maybe work with 2.0.3 but NOT with 2.0 and lesser!)
* ftp access to your server
* GD 2.0+ and JPEG libraries compiled into PHP for automatic image resize
* ’safe mode’ off for zip upload
This seems to be superb. Just a bit daunting to install.
I have installed http://www.soderlind.no/archives/2006/01/03/imagemanager-20/
Just for nterest, but it does't qite have the functonality I need.
Hmm. Any suggestions welcome. I've RSS'ed this thread, I'l be back as I try tome more on the humungous list of plugins.
