Recommended Wordpress Plugins

For a lot of businesses it actually quite hard work creating images or photos to make content more visual. With the explosion of Social Media its really important to make sure that your content has visual impact as well as rich information. 

So there is a fantastic plugin for all you WordPress users out there, and its called photodropper. Simply download the plugin and then upload it and activate it in the plugin area of your website.

Ella the Snow DogNow when you go to create a new blog post or website page, you will see a graphic that looks like a hot air balloon just under your title and next to where you normally upload your media. If you click on this balloon you are presented with the photodropper search area, you simply type in a keyword and then chose by relevance or most recent (I always keep the search on the last year!) then on the left hand side of the screen you will be presented with images that you can simply use in your blog for free.

Simply click on the image that takes your fancy and install it into your blog. (Like little Ella here on the right!!) The nice thing about this particular tool is that there is no need to worry about copywrite and attributions as the plugin takes care of all of that for you. All the images on the left of the screen you can use without worry.

If you want to you can sign up for a premium account you can then use the images to the right hand side but they will cost you a few pennies if you want to use them.

So what are you waiting for? get this plugin installed and make sure you never struggle for the right image again!
