I’m a big fan of the new WordPress admin interface, especially the new media buttons that lets you quickly add photos, videos, and audio to your posts.
But what if you use Flickr for your photos? Well, there is a great plugin called WordPress Media Flickr, written by yu-ji. It adds a little Flickr media button, and makes adding a photo from your Flickr photostream a piece of cake.
His site is in Japanese, but he has a great screencast showing the plugin at work.
After installing the plugin and entering your Flickr account details, click the new media button, and you’re presented with a very streamlined interface:
Select the image you want, and you’re provided with some sizing and alignment options:
Click Insert, and the markup is dumped into your post, and you can continue writing.
One pet-peeve of mine is that the markup isn’t customizable – for instance, it wraps the photo in
<p></p> tags, and adds an inline float style if you choose to align left, etc. But that aside, this is a great plugin.
