"Easy Replace Image" m'a permis de remplacer rapidement une image en trois cliques sans devoir revoir ou corriger l'ensemble des pages sur lesquelles se retrouvait l'image en question. Cependant, j'ai constaté que les modifications ne s'affichaient pas sur le navigateur de travail (Chrome), mais tout était OK sur les navigateurs témoins (firefox et Microsoft Edge). Après avoir vidé le cache de chrome tout était OK. Merci Julia Cazan pour votre travail.

This is a great plugin! I have a client whoms media library was stuffed with heavy & out of proportion images and this plugin gives me the toolset for cleaning up! Thank you for sharing your expertise by offering this plugin.

After migrating my content I had broken images that needed a quick fix. Finally, a plugin that easily lets you replace an image, updating it automatically in other places as well, without changing the attachment's name, since I some images embedded in the content, not just as a reference. Works perfectly with the latest WP and it's extremely easy to use!
