Latest update: 19 Jun 2018. Version: 2.6.2. Platform: for WordPress.
Save tons of time when adding images into your posts! Write with pleasure, fill your lovely website with quality content!
Have you wondered how many steps you need to do for adding an image into a wordpress post? For example, a screen snapshot? Or a region from Photoshop? Or a photo somewhere on your hard disk?
We bet you could add images more often and make your content more attractive if it doesn’t take so many time! If you write tutorials, reviews, news or just articles with a lot of photos, the Image Elevator plugin has been made exactly made for you.
Image Elevator for WordPress allows you to paste images into the post editor directly from clipboard! In other words, you can paste images directly from your favorite graphical editors or from any screen capture programs. Just copy & paste. What’s more you can rename and compress images after pasting.
Paste Screenshots & Screen Clippings
If you write tutorial articles illustrated with screenshots, you know that making, processing, saving, uploading all these screenshots take a lot of time. With Image Elevator, you can make screenshots and paste them directly into the post editor in just matter of seconds!
We recommend you to use one of the following great programs which allow to make screenshots of the entire screen or a portion of the screen, edit and then copy them in clipboard: Jing, TinyTake, pixclip, Skitch, OneNote. Also by default operating systems provide users with some abilities to capture the screen.
Paste regions from your favorite Graphical Editor
If you often process images with a graphical editor before publishing them on your blog, Image Elevator will save you tons of time.
Remember which steps you need to do in order to add images to your posts after editing in a graphical editor: selecting a folder to save (1), typing a title (2), saving (3), opening the WP Media Library (4), selecting the folder where you have just saved image again (5), uploading (6).
With Image Elevator, you only need to select a region (1), copy & paste (2).
Copy images from other websites
All the most popular web browsers allow to copy selected images from a webpage into clipboard. Then you can paste them into your post by using Image Elevator. Please keep in mind the images in internet may be subject to copyright.
Paste local images stored on your PC (in Firefox only)
Firefox provides access to files, copied from the explorer, for web applications like Image Elevator. It’s the quickest way to add images from your PC into your posts.
Just call the context menu for the image you want to copy and select the item “Copy”. Then insert the image in the post editor.
Works in Visual and Text modes
You can use Image Elevator to paste images in the Text Mode as well as the Visual Mode.
Rename images with ease for better SEO
By default WordPress doesn’t allow to change file names of the images in your posts. But the relevant filename of an image is good for SEO as well as the relevant headline.
Also if you paste an image from clipboard, it has a random name. Therefore we included a handy tool for renaming any images on your server.
Compress images on the fly
When you paste images, especially photos, they can be quite large and add extra loads on your website.
Turn on the compression feature, set the max allowed size for pasted images and forget about this problem. Your images will be automatically converted to jpeg with specified the quality value.
The most of the plugin features are available in all the major browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE 11). Pasting local images stored on PC via clipboard is available in Firefox only.
What Our Customers Say
I bought the plugin, and it has already saved me HOURs of time. This is awesome. Cutting and pasting direct from Photoshop or other image editors is simply amazing … It’s even better if you get a screenshot app for Chrome or Firefox, and then crop the image section you want – Control V … hey presto, the image is placed into your WordPress post, compressed and ready for SEO friendly tags. This is really awesome!– covert
Simply copy/capture an image, paste into your editor and viola, your image will be added to your post/page by the automatic creation of the necessary mark-up. The image is also added to your media library (without a thumbnail though this is negligible). Well designed documentation and overall a great time-saver. – Clarus Dignus
I have been using wordpress for 8 years and I have never commented on a plugin. But this one is something special and I feel compelled to support it. This plugin saves a bucket load of time and it works. Well done. Keep developing it. Don’t know how you did it… but keep going. 5 stars!! – Damon Taylor
