    Hi Andrew. I have a theme that allows me to add a slide show but I don’t use that feature. I think what I really need is some better images to show off. I’ll take a look at some of these plugins too. Thanks for the list and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

      Hi Ileane

      Great to see you here.

      I want to install such a feature here as well…on my ‘to do’ list…perhaps this week.

      Really depends upon the amount of client work I get.

    Thanks Andrew for these recommendations. Will check them out as I feel having good graphics to go with my posts is important. I usually get my niece to do my graphics so to have other options will be good; especially as I continue to write posts and she gets busy with her studies.

      Images can make a huge difference.

      I’ve gone back and updated a few of my very first blog posts as they didn’t have images.


  3. Daisy October 23, 2010 at 10:23 am #

    Thanks for sharing these awesome resources to get attractive images for our blogs. I didn’t knew any of them before except Flickr Photo Album plugin which i normally use in all of my blogs.

    • Andrew October 25, 2010 at 7:58 am #


      You are welcome. I hope they help.

    Found this post whilst looking for wordpress image plugins and I must say the search engines have really delivered this time.

    What a fantastic and very informative post, just what I was looking for.

    • Andrew October 25, 2010 at 8:01 am #

    Thanks for putting this list together. I’m always looking for ways to improve my blog.

    Does someone know if they can tell me if I can find a WordPress embedded footer plugin that I’ve been looking for or maybe wherre I can find it because I’m supposed to be able to embed the footer of my blog into my posts I think that way and it’s a way to automated some of the embedding of banners I think?

    • Alice October 25, 2010 at 1:44 am #

      Jack. I’ve heard about the WordPress embedded footer plugin, but I don’t think it’s been released yet. I think the developers are still working out some problems with WordPress 3.0 compatibility.

    • Andrew October 25, 2010 at 8:03 am #


      What about something like:


      Does that help. It enables text to be added.


      • Jack October 29, 2010 at 4:11 am #

        It could work, yes, thank you, although the plugin somehow was to add the footer text to the middle of the post, but I better check again because it’s not making sense to me now.

  9. Richard October 24, 2010 at 5:08 pm #

    Thanks for the list of plugins. I could really use some image editors for my blog. Images really make a blog come alive.

  12. Richmond Movers October 25, 2010 at 3:37 pm #

    Thanks for this. I’m particularly partial to the Dainis Graveris link.

    Hey Andrew,
    You have definitely went all out in laying out the plugins that can help you animate your blog with cool images.
    By having related images in your content is a way of completing your post and make your writing come to live with the help of an visual expression. Of course for this you need some custom images which might cost a bit for each post.. better go and learn some Photoshop πŸ˜›

  14. TrafficColeman October 25, 2010 at 2:31 pm #

    Your correct Andrew, photo is an must have and that’s why I implement them in to all my article post…a picture is worth a thousands words right?

    • Andrew October 26, 2010 at 12:32 pm #

      Exactly! I just didn’t add one to this post – I don’t know why but I tend not to for my ‘lists’.


  15. Jason October 25, 2010 at 3:04 pm #

    There’s no photo’s in this post…I’m outta here. πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for the links.

    • Andrew October 26, 2010 at 12:32 pm #


      yeah I know – how stupid of me!!!


  16. Dennis Edell October 25, 2010 at 5:19 pm #

    Excellent resource Andrew, thanks. πŸ™‚

    I’ll be trying something a little different with my photos first though.

  17. Rodney Ash October 25, 2010 at 5:21 pm #

    Thanks for putting this post together. I’m getting ready to launch a new blog that will be image heavy. You’ve cut down on some my research. Thanks for doing that.

    • Andrew October 26, 2010 at 12:33 pm #


      I’m glad my post helped.


  18. Henway October 26, 2010 at 5:48 pm #

    Thanks for such awesome plugins.

  19. Chadrack October 28, 2010 at 4:08 pm #

    Hmm, this is indeed mouthful! Will have to take some time to check a few out. Thanks for the list.

  20. Joseph Archibald November 18, 2010 at 12:19 am #

    Hey Andrew, very helpful list and thanks for the share!

    I’m wondering if you can use these sort of images available from the list above to insert in things like banner graphics? I recently had some graphic work done for a couple of sites but when the designer asked me to also purchase a few (very) small images, I gulped because what was already a 70 buck job for 4 graphics would have quickly gone way above the 200 buck mark if I’d purchased the images she wanted me to.

    Kind regards!


    • Andrew November 18, 2010 at 10:26 am #


      Best thing to do is look at the lisence details that goes with the image.

      If in doubt, don’t use it.
