New Must Have WordPress Plugin

I’m not usually one to repost content that I’ve seen on other blogs but I’m making an exception in this case. Graywolf of wolf-howl.com published a post yesterday about a new plugin and after checking it out, I knew I’d have to share it with my readers. It immediately jumped into my list of “Must Have” plugins and is, in my opinion one of the coolest plugins out there.

The plugin is called PhotoDropper and it allows you to add Flickr images and photos to your blog posts with just a single click of your mouse. Not only that, it also generates the proper attribution for the photo as well. Installation is as easy as you could ask for. Simply upload the folder, activate the plugin, and you’re off and running. The next time you find yourself writing or editing a post or page, you’ll notice a search box under the content area and all you do is type in the word or phrase describing the image and hit submit. The plugin then pulls up a selection of images and gives you the option of adding any image in the small, medium, or large sizes to your blog.

If you’re looking for a picture of a fast car, the kind that seems so popular in the make money online niche, simply type ferrari in the search box, find the image you like (they pull up right inside your WordPress admin panel), click the size you want, and viola:

I think you get the point. Basically, this is, as the site says “the easiest way to add photos to your blog. Period.”
