Your blog needs photos if you are to retain your visitors.
The photos I’m talking about here are not just any photos but photos that look attractive and are also related to your blog or to your article.
You might be wondering just how you will create photos like that when you’re not a designer. Well, no need to worry because here are the best WP photos and image gallery plugins that can help you liven up and spice up your blog.

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!
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.
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.
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.
Great list of plugin resources, thanks.

Thanks for sharing this lists of gallery plugins Andrew.
I guess i don’t need them, but my followers might. Just spread it and tweeted!
I appreciate the share and Tweet.
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?
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.
What about something like:
Does that help. It enables text to be added.
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.
Thanks for the list of plugins. I could really use some image editors for my blog. Images really make a blog come alive.
Wow… that’s a great list you have share, thanks man.. I’m just looking for a plugin for my photo to be shown up nicely on my blog… thanks again.
thank you for the plugins !! i need stuff like these ! ! i will be using them once i get a new project !!!
Thanks for this. I’m particularly partial to the Dainis Graveris link.
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 😛
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?

Exactly! I just didn’t add one to this post – I don’t know why but I tend not to for my ‘lists’.
There’s no photo’s in this post…I’m outta here. 😉
Thanks for the links.
yeah I know – how stupid of me!!!
Excellent resource Andrew, thanks. 🙂
I’ll be trying something a little different with my photos first though.
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.
I’m glad my post helped.
Thanks for such awesome plugins.
Hmm, this is indeed mouthful! Will have to take some time to check a few out. Thanks for the list.
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.
Best thing to do is look at the lisence details that goes with the image.
If in doubt, don’t use it.
