WP Image Embeds Plugin

Forget the preamble, just let me download the plugin.

The way Houzz.com enables webmasters and bloggers to embed their product images inspired us to develop a simple plugin for WordPress users who want to do the same thing for images on their site.

Once activated, when someone tries to right click on an image in any post or page it will pop a modal dialog box with the embed code for that particular image. The link will be set to the permalink for the page or post in question and the image alt tag will reflect the title of that page or post. In this way you can passively build links back to your posts and pages using your image assets. See it in action in the video above.

Sound like you? You can download the plugin from the official WordPress plugin directory.

If you like this, we’d be very grateful if you could share it with your network via your blog or social network of choice. We opted to make it available for free download in the hope that more people would try it out and if they liked it would help spread the word. Cheers.

  1. Brilliant idea, thanks. It works perfectly on the standard images, but not with the Responsive Lightbox by dFactory plugin when the image is zoomed to it’s full size. Any ideas?

    • Hi Thomas, yes this is a limitation of the plugin and honestly I’m not sure we’ll be able to address this anytime soon…so many things that could break if we tried to play nice with all the popular image gallery/lightbox plugins out there. Sorry that’s not the answer you wanted.

  2. Have you thought about interfacing this with wooCommerce? Or Does it already by chance?

    • Hi Gratisan, this plugin makes it easy for you to allow others to display your images on their websites with a link back to you. The images remain hosted by you, it doesn’t move the images.
