lr2ImageSnag

Trying out this new WordPress plugin here. I’m fairly certain it’s working, but not sure if it’s working entirely properly. From what I’ve seen in my testing it seems to embed images at the bottom of the post, something it should not be doing.

Tomorrow I am going to try and figure out why all of these pictures show up in WordPress so small, too. I’ve done a check for some sort of image size but can’t seem to find it. If anyone has any information on (a) easing the process of getting images into posts or (b) making posts display larger-than-thumbnail sized images feel free to leave a comment. Hopefully I can get these things sorted out, as once I’m done with the backend issues of getting images to work correctly I’ll be free to work on getting a theme going.

Update: Well, it seems to place the picture to the right of the first paragraph. Interesting. That is better than at the end of the post, and at least it works.

Update 2: Since I didn’t describe it before, what lr2ImageSnag does is allows me to post a URL to an image hosted elsewhere online. What the plugin does is it copies the image, scales it down, and hosts it locally. This is an amazing tool to ease the pain of having to download images, resize them in PhotoShop (I don’t seem to have any other software that will do it), and then upload them. All I need to do is figure out how to customize the sizes images are displayed at and I’ll be happy.

  1. I’m looking for this plugin all around and don’t find the download link anywhere! Seems the developer has dropped down the project. Could you please email me it?

    Thank you.

  2. Diego,

    I uploaded the version I have here. I’ve found I haven’t used it all that much, and it was troublesome to set up (and always had some kinks). Hope this helps you out though.
