PHOTOPRESS is an integrated suite of image management and gallery presentation features that photographers can use to build photography centric websites. The plugin allows you to create beautiful designed image galleries as well as extract, store and publish any EXIF/IPTC/XMP meta-data embedded in your images.

  • Create a gallery of child pages (useful as an index of gallery pages)


  • Define unlimited custom image taxonomies
  • Extract embedded image EXIF, IPTC, and XMP meta-data from image files
  • Store extracted meta-data into image taxonomies
  • Create and extract child taxonomies from embedded meta-data fields

Our development motto is “do no harm” which means that we leverage the patterns outlined in WordPress Core and the Gutenberg editor as opposed to creating proprietary features that impede the overall usability of WordPress.
