Fine & simple widget

First I used another widget for many years, with almost the same name :), but after an update that plugin wanted admin rights to For me that means: exit.

This plugin is very useful and it contains exactly what I need. Just an image, a title, a link-field (with options), a caption and option to resize.
Just! Great!
