Reviews

update delay

I give 1 star for delay update. it is a dangerous plugin to use for all website. maybe you cant update all URL photos with other plugins easy. this plugin is so important for a store. developers are sleeping for the last update. sorry.

Works like a charm !

This plugin solved a major problem for me, as it does exactly what I needed to randomly load a featured image every time the blog's archive page is loaded (by using an outside service). Thanks a million !

Saved us!

This plugin has saved us so much money is image licensing! Works great!

Great plugin, it works like a charm!

The plugin is very helpful when you use a CDN, you can link your product images from another server with no hassle. It can be improved if the plugin could link those images to "Facebook for Woocommerce" plugin becuase at this time, Facebook is unable to add the images with this plugin. even though, great job! Cheers.

Easy to use & does what it says!

5 Stars easily deserved. A great free plugin with no ads plastered all over it and provides features which other plugins only make available in their premium version. Easy to install, straight forward to use. Tested on a multisite set up with WooCommerce & WP All Import. Works for product main image & gallery images (comma separated list). Big thanks to the author!
