This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



A very light-weight plugin, designed to make updating meta-values (title, caption, description and alternate text) more efficient, by providing one central table of imagery and a duplicate button to copy this information across fields.

Simple, Straight-Forward Meta Updates

All current imagery is presented in a table, sortable by TITLE or DATE.

  • Update Title, Caption, Description or Alt values independently, or
  • …update one, and copy across to the other fields.
  • Updates are performed on-the-fly, so no lengthy reloads are necessary.
  • A quick reference thumbnail is presented in-line to popup individual images for review.
  • An edit link is provided beside each image to fine-tune editing, using traditional wordpress administration.
  • Missing images are highlighted and an additional delete button is provided for safe/quick file grooming.
  • Quick-edit dropdowns are provided to open/edit posts where images are attached, or embedded into the post content.


  • The ImageMeta table with examples of image meta-data that can be directly edited, or easily copied across all fields and saved with the click of a button.
  • Missing images that can be safely removed.


  1. Install ImageMeta either via the plugin directory, or by uploading the files to your server (in the /wp-content/plugins/ directory).
  2. Activate the plugin.
  3. Access ImageMeta in the Admin > Tools flyout, and away you go!


Are there any new features planned?

Yes. We plan to add a feature to access posts (and post counts) where each image is attached.

Can i propose a feature?

If you wish. Sure.



I especially love how you can copy the description, alt, caption, and title, with the press of one button. Very fast and REALLY helps my SEO!

Quick, easy, powerful

Works great for what I need. Allows me to modify the image name, title, description, and alt text, and quickly modify all at one time!

Allows me to see which posts/pages include the image and which images are orphaned (not being used). Clean, user-friendly interface.

Highly recommended!
