With PhotoDropper finding the right photo has never been easier. Get access over 253M+ free & premium photos without ever leaving WordPress.
This has a short learning curve. I read through the reviews before installing and saw some people had problems, but mine works fine. There are a few things that may be tripping people up.
1. When you click on the PhotoDropper icon (next to the Media button), it takes you to an overlay. My icon didn't work at first, and so I deactivated some plugins to see what was causing the hangup, it seems it was a plugin of mine that produced an i-frame. It was one I wasn't using, so I deactivated it and PhotoDropper worked fine.
2. After clicking the icon, you enter your search term and it fills with Flickr images.
3. Select a picture by clicking on it, then click the "Insert into post" on the left-hand side.
If the picture just says "saving" and doesn't seem to do anything, X out of the overlay and go to your Media library. The picture will be there. This happened to me the first couple of times I inserted an image.
4. I have always used "sort by interestingness" - it retrieves the best pictures from Flickr.
5. As with all images, you are ultimately responsible for licenses and attributions, and that's why the plugin gives you the option to "view on flickr."
I currently have a blog from which I make no money out from. I'm glad I found Photo Dropper, which allows me to add great CC images to my posts. WAAAAY TO GO!!!
Works great and makes finding images (legally!) very hassle-free.
Excellent tool. Very easy. Great attribution tool.
I love this feature right in website. Don't have to search forever to find the right graphic.
love this plugin even though i cant always find a photo i like/want ... that it adds the required accreditation backlink is a huge time saver
I love peppering all of my posts with pictures; it livens up the blog and it makes the content easier for people to understand. Photodropper is the easiest way to get interesting content, properly attributed.
This plugin is a part of my day to day work and we can't live without it! Great integration with wordpress. It's not without bugs, thou, sometimes the photos are not imported correctly and, most annoying, often it adds the css and js to the main site header, forcing you to edit the plugin by hand if you don't want 99.9% of your users downloading a few useless bytes.
Great plugin. Can't believe something of such great value and quality is free. Well done and thanks!
