    I think sometimes there's a bit of a misconception of what the plugin is supposed to do. This might be a lack of clarity on my part.

    It is an image-based representation of a post. It's not a representation of an image.

    I'll try to update the plugin to be a bit clearer on what's it's supposed to be used for in future versions.

    Would be even better if the thumbnails could link to the original image

    Even without what I said before, the plugin would have to make the assumption that an original image existed. That would be a wildly inaccurate assumption in many cases.

    I've just hired someone to include this feature for me. Works well.

    It's easy enough to do. I hope you didn't pay too much. The developer probably could've coded it in 5 minutes.

    It's probably something that won't be added to the plugin though as that's not what the plugin is for.

    I'm glad you got something that works out for you.

    what this plugin does that no other plugin does... that makes it a good image plugin is it allows the template to get ANY specific image by order, and there for not relying on the actual image name... that way one can make a standard template and the user only needs to ensure the order of the uploaded image is in correct order. No other plugin has this functionality. This makes for a very powerful tool in designing a template like a real estate website.

    "perthmetro: Sorry I missed this post. Viva Thumbs already does this at $15.00

    As Greenshady says, get the image has a different function.
