SEO Image Renamer


The SEO-IMR Plugin is a small plugin that scans all the images which are attached to posts or pages on your blog.

In a small form it displays the current image name and the attached EXIF data.

The whole purpose of the plugin is to rename images AFTER they have been uploaded to the Media-Library and eventually added into a post.

The plugin can rename these images and also rename all the generated thumbnails.

Additionally to that, the plugin removes any EXIF-Data such as “Adbobe Photoshop CS 5” or “Copyright MR. A” etc.

If you buy a lot of photos on the internet and you are looking for a convenient way to rename these, this is the plugin for you.

Please read the INSTALLTION tab. You need to have ImageMagick installed, otherwise the plugin will trigger a “Fatal Error”

This plugin is Multi-Site compatible!


  • Working Screenshot with critical EXIF-Data


  1. Make sure you have ImageMagick WORKING. Otherwise the plugin will not work and trigger a fatal error.
  2. Upload seo-image-renamer/ to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


Why does the Plugin say: Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

Because you need to install ImageMagick

Can the plugin also rename alt-Tags and title-attributes?

Since 1.2 it can, yes.

Can the plugin used in Multi-Site installs?

Since it does not use own tables, yes it is.
