  • I’ve recently decided to convert my online art portfolio to a wordpress blog so I can update faster and let people browese my work more efficiently.

    I kind of wanted to keep the same browsing scheme of my old site, in which I had a bunch of thumbnails of my art, animations, designs on separate pages and then the broweser would click on the thumbnail and the image would pop up in a new window.

    I’m a little suck though. I would like to know if it’s possible that through a plugin or perhaps code of some sort I can have a thumbnail array that automatically shrinks the art image contained in a post so I don’t have to manually create thumbnails for all of my art and people can just click on the thumbnail and it will bring up the post containing that artwork.

    Sorry if it sounds confusing but if you kind of or don’t understand what I’m saying but need me to clarify I’d be happy to explain it better. 😛

    Thanks for the help! 🙂

  • Good news! WordPress lets you create thumbnails within the posting/admin section. You don’t have to manually make an additional thumbnail-sized file, either!

    When you use the image upload function, after you’ve uploaded your image, click on it, and you’ll get a menu.

    Click on the lines in the menu so that they read:
    Using Thumbnail
    Linked to Image

    Then choose “send to editor” and POOF! there it is, right in your text editor, awaiting “publishing”. Takes two seconds and you’re all good. 🙂

    Thanks for the help. 🙂 I need to get the hang of it but I should be familiar with WP in awhile. I’ve been searching and I think I need to make it so that when I upload files in conjunction with my posts I can choose their destination directories so I don’t have to mess with FTP. I found a plugin but it doesn’t let me choose a destination on a file by file basis, it all has to be uploaded into one folder. I need to keep researching. 🙁

    I think that the iimage browser plugin lets you create and choose directories and does the thumbnailing stuff too.
    give it a try

    don’t know if it works with wp 2.0
    here it is:
