– Create and browse directories
– Upload images and create thumbnails
– Delete files
– Generates code to insert the image into the post
I’ve been using this plugin for a long long time, right from the 1.5 days. Even with the new image uploader in WordPress 2.0 and 2.1, I have continued using the plugin.
The installation process is a bit cumbersome in my opinion, because it requires you to dump one php file in the plugins folder and another php file in the wp-admin directory before you get the plugin to work.
The plugin adds a button to the quicktags toolbar (which is also the toolbar in Code view of the WYSIWYG in WordPress 2.1).
Clicking this button launches the image browser, where you can upload images, create directories, create thumbnails, generate the code or delete the images.
IImage Browser gives me the exact amount of control I need to organize the images. I like the images to be organized based on category, as opposed to the date-based structure that WP offers by default.
One extra feature that makes IImage Browser useful is the ability to specify custom code that you can use for full size images and ones with thumbnails.
I’ve used this feature to integrate the Open Picture Window plugin to display the full size image on clicking on a thumbnail.
Again this is a personal choice on how I want to display images on my site, but I would like to hear your opinion.
Are you using this plugin? What are your experiences.
If not this, what are you using to add images to your posts?
