This guest post is written by Alexis Thompson who is an alumna from Martin College Australia.


wordpress plugins for blog imagesImages give life to our blog. Attractive photos enhance the words we've written in our site. If you’re like me, I often resort to Google as my image provider. However, this doesn't always guarantee that I will get the resolution quality I need. One of the best solutions to this dilemma is using plugins. WordPress offers different plugins that can enhance the quality of your image. Here are 8 of the best WordPress plugins you can add to your blog.



Before Starting off, you may like to read:


#1 SEO Friendly Images


This plugin updates your images with the right ALT and TITLE components for SEO purposes. The ALT attribute describes the images to different search engines so that when someone searches for a particular image this will be the determining factor for the match. The TITLE attribute, on the other hand, is the text that automatically appears in the tool tip when the mouse is pointed on the image. If your image does not have these two, SEO Friendly Images will add them for you based on the options you indicated.

 There’s also a Flickr widget included so you can easily integrate your photos into your blog's sidebar. In your WordPress edit screen a Flickr icon will be added to quickly allow you to insert Flickr photos into your posts. You have the option to have your inserted images link back to your WordPress Flickr photo album or directly to your Flickr photo page.
