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!
