Encrypt Image Tags within the_content() area


This will ensure that the audience of your site will not see the actual image source/filename. This in one way will just deter an user from stealing your image. However, internet savvy people will be somehow able to still reverse engineer the scrambled script to recover the filename. Security is never 100% 😉 Hope this plugin will be of some use to others too.


  1. Upload ‘encrypt-img-tag.php to the /wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Done
