Did you ever forget to add the source to an image file in the frontend and the lawyer of the copyright holder knocked on your door?

Image Source Control (ISC) helps to prevent this situation.

github repository

Since I am not able to work on feature requests or fix buxes right now, you can submit them to the github repository.
I will definitely review them there.

Image Sources Lists

You can choose between different image source list types:

  • source as image caption/overlay (not compatible with all themes)
  • source list below the content
  • combined source list of all images

Frontend Features

  • display sources for images in content, galleries, shortcodes and featured images
  • show image source directly in the image (not working with all images and themes)
  • include a list with all images and their sources of the current page/post
  • include a list with all images and their sources with all images or only those included in posts
  • attach lists to automatically or using shortcodes or template functions
  • display image sources on archive pages

Backend Features

  • manage image source within media dashboard
  • mark an image to belong to the uploader
  • lists images with missing sources in the backend
  • warnings, if image source is missing
  • link sources to any url
  • manage, display and link licences
