WordPress Wednesday: YAY Images WordPress Plugin
Images play an important role in the success of a weblog, but finding the 'right' visual asset can be a real challenge. Fortunately, there are plenty of plugins ready to lend a virtual hand.
One of the most recent releases has been from YAY Images, a Norwegian-based stock image vendor. The company has released a new image plugin for WordPress that makes adding images to blog posts quite a bit easier. The YAY Images plugin for WordPress offers a visual search feature, rather simple embedding, in-browser editing, support for "featured images," along with access to millions of royalty-free stock images.
Bloggers and marketers can download the plugin for free from WordPress’ plugin repository and all new users get five free YAY stock images of their choice to try it out. Once those five images have been used up, you won't be floored by the cost which is $9.90/month for unlimited streaming images.
“Adding high-quality, legal images to your blog has never been easier,” CEO and co-founder Linda L. Johannessen said. “We’ve built this plugin using our renowned streaming technology which gives bloggers highly affordable images.”
“We did a lot of research before starting this project and there really wasn’t a good plugin for adding legal stock images” Ms. Johannessen says. “We wanted to build something that’s easy-to-use, affordable and fun - and I think we’ve succeeded.”
