Looking for a simple plugin for images (5 posts)

    I was using Florian Jung's Image Browser plugin with WP 1.5.2 but it doesn't seem to work with WP 2.0.1. I'm looking for a plugin that simply places a correctly dimensioned image (with an ALT tag) into a post or Page.

    Any pointers would be appreciated.

    There are a few listed in the 2.0 Plugin Compatibility List..

    I recently installed the Photopress Plug-in and it is great. Highly recommended. You can download it here:

    One word about modifying it to make it work in a two column theme such as Kubrick:

    In the css file modify the first entry to look like this:

    #pp_wrap {
    overflow-x:hidden;
    width: 400px;
    margin-left: 40px
    }

    Otherwise it will take over the whole page and push your sidebar to the bottom. The great thing about this plug-in is that it allows you to have several independant photo galleries on your blog. You just create different categories for each gallery you want, and specify the category for each photo when you upload it.

    In WordPress 2.0 you can obviously also just use the photo uploader built-in to WordPress. If you select "use original" intstead of "use thumbnail" once the image is uploaded, you can then modify the size of the image by changing the code for width and height in the text editor. If you want to insert the image full-size you can just delete the width and height specs all together.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I only want a simple way to add a dimensioned image into a post. With the Photopress Plug-in the image always seems to be wrapped in a link to a popup window. The default WordPress uploader works fine, but it seems the image dimensions have to be added manually - would be ideal if the dimensions went in automatically as they do with the Florian Jung plugin.

    You can also install the ChenPress Plugin and upload and insert images through ChenPress. This allows you to specify image size. I have used a bit of a hybrid system for a while, using PhotoPress to upload and crop images creating square thumbnails, then inserting using ChenPress to avoid the popup. To make this work you must set the image file for PhotoPress to the same file address as the image file for ChenPress.
