Better Image Credits

Description

This plugin adds credits, link and license fields to media uploads and offer several
options to display image credits on your posts and pages. You can either:

  • Use the [image-credit] shortcode. Optional attributes are sep, before, after
    and template (use curly brackets instead of square brackets for placeholders).
  • Use the the_image_credits() template tag. Optional parameters are sep,
    before, after and template.
  • Let the plugin automatically display the credits for you, before or after the
    content or overlaid above each image.
  • Use the widget to display the credits in the footer or the sidebars.

See the settings page to choose how you display the credits, including the HTML
used to build them.

This plugin is a fork of the Image Credits plugin
by Adam Capriola. It is 100%
compatible, if you are already using the Image Credit plugin just replace it
with this one and it will work about the same way, except you will have more control.

Reviews

Good fork

Became dizzy of all these forks. 🙂

Anyway your works best. Image Credits nofollow has nofollow, but your has it to. Global option but more than enough. Image Credits nofollow is lacking some important options.

It works!

Thank you for your plugin development.

If you are needing a simple solution for image credits, this plugin does it. There are more advanced features available, and a shortcode for those needing a quick fix.

Easy & flexible for all who use (creative commons) images

Rather than fiddling around with notes in every blogpost, you just enter the details once per image and they’ll just appear; didn’t have to fiddle with code. Easy! Flexible as you’re able to edit what is actually used & displayed (text & links) in the credits (change language, remove anything you don’t want).

Makes it much easier to comply with (creative commmons) licence requirements!
