Inserting Multiple Images into WordPress at once – Two even Better ways

As a photographer needing to blog photos from my South Florida Weddings, Engagements and other photography sessions, I find myself needing to post a number of photos at once in a blog entry with more frequency than your average blogger.

I’ve researched this extensively and already had a post that suggested using attachment-extender and another post that offered what amounts to a wordpress hack to help solve this problem.

Today I have two new solutions (which are the ones I’m currently using).  I don’t have a specific preference of one over the other because I’m a Windows user.  Someone who isn’t a Windows user will only be able to go with my first suggestion.

WordPress Plugin Solution – works on all platforms

The plugin I’m using these days, which has replaced the previous ones I wrote about is Faster Image Insert.  It offers a number of features (many of which I don’t even use) including making it ridiculously easy to add many images in one fell swoop.  What the plugin does is add a panel to the New Post scren in WordPress, which gives you direct access to uploading images from your PC, from a URL, as well as your media library.  Once you have the images loaded into the media library you can see them right here on the same page as the post, check off the ones you want inserted (one at a time, or many at once) and click Insert Selected Images.

Simple as that.  And portable because it lives in your wordpress

Microsoft Live Writer Solution – works only in windows

The plugin above would make it seem that using a blog-writing tool would be pointless, but sometime you’re so lazy you don’t even want to deal with having to search for your images to upload, and would rather just drag them into a post.

Microsoft Live Writer lets you do just this.  It’s very customizeable, easy to use, free.  And you can drag/drop as many images as you want, compose your post offline and then publish it on WordPress.

It gets a big thumb up from me.

Let me know what you think, in the comments.

  1. Lisy78,
    Nice plug in.
    I will have to give it a whirl this weekend.

    did the feed back help on the session w/ Tia?


  2. Mark,

    The plugin rocks! I still can’t believe it’s not part of the WordPress core.
    The feedback on Tia’s session was fantastic! Thank you so much for your time!!!

  3. Thanks for this. I have been googling this subject forever. Even though I have a Prophoto blog that does this automatically, I have a second blog and was wondering how I was going to put in all photos at once!
