I do like this plugin and use it all the time. I use it mainly when I'm resizing images so their dimensions better fit etc.
The only thing keeping this plugin from a 5 star review is the UI. When I select an image to replace, WordPress can be slow and I will generally multi-task and check something else. When I come back - I continually forget which image I'm replacing.
With no reference to the image (no thumbnail) I am forced to go back and start again, making a point to remember which image I am replacing...
A small gripe but still a nuisance
Awesome plugin, does exactly as advertised. I just wish it had a cooler name :)
It's a common problem to have to replace media files when you're finishing a project. This plugin comes in handy for that, since you don't mess with already attached references, url and so on.
The only thing I miss is a thumbnail on the Replace Media Upload page itself (when you replace several images, it would help to have some kind of reference on that page as to what image you're indeed replacing). And probably a notice regarding cache and thumbnails that refuse to change.
A great solution to a time consuming chore.
Doesn't work if you're uploading a different image type. That would be my only complaint.
This is an excellent plug-in to make it easy for clients to update their own galleries, particularly on static pages.
I often use a CSS-based gallery which is dependent on file name preservation. Previously, I had to teach clients to make sure they changed the image name to match. Now, it is one less step for a non tech-savy business owner to have to perform.
This plug-in increases client satisfaction, which increases retention.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 is as of today it does not work with WP 3.5 without this fix.
I agree with the wish-list to let this include .pdf replacement, but the plug-in is not advertised to do this, so no stars off for that.
Would be great if it worked for PDF's and documents. Is an excellent plugin for use with image files.
