Auto Image Attributes From Filename With Bulk Updater


Adicionar automaticamente os atributos da imagem, como título, legenda, descrição e texto alternativo, a partir do nome do arquivo de imagem nos novos uploads.

The plugin can update image attributes for both new images and existing images in the media library.

It allowed me to save tons of time. Further, the support is nice and ready to help.

Image alt text and title is critical for your image SEO and will help users discover your images (and there by your website) in Google / Yahoo / Bing image search.

Proper alt text also helps people who are blind or who have low vision understand your images there by improving the accessibility of your website. This will open up your website to a new segment of visitors and increase your traffic.

If I could give this 1 more star I would!

With this plugin you can:

  • Defina o nome do arquivo de imagem como a título da imagem.
  • Set the image filename as the image Caption.
  • Set the image filename as the image Description.
  • Set the image filename as the image Alt Text. This was a default feature in WordPress before 4.7. The plugin restores this essential feature which is great for SEO.
  • Insert Image Title into post HTML. WordPress stopped adding Image Titles to images since WordPress 3.5. The plugin restores it.
  • Remove hyphens from the image filename.
  • Remove underscores from the image filename.
  • Remover pontos ( . ) do nome do arquivo.
  • Remover vírgulas ( , ) do nome do arquivo.
  • Remove all numbers from filename.
  • Choose to turn off any of the above mentioned features.

With the bulk updater you can:

  • Set the image filename as image Title, Caption, Description and Alt Text after removing hyphens and underscores from the filename.
  • Update any number of images in your Media Library in one click.

If your image filename is My_image-name.jpg, your Image Title, Caption, Description And Alt Text will be My image name.

The plugin settings and bulk updater are in WordPress Admin > Settings > Image Attributes. Here you can choose which attributes to update for NEW uploads.

Please remember to take a database backup before running the bulk updater. The bulk updater updates ALL attributes for existing images in the Media Library and ignores the settings set for NEW uploads.

Image Attributes Pro

A pro add-on is now available for the plugin. Check out Image Attributes Pro.

The pro add-on can update the image attributes from not just the image filename, but also from the post / page / product / custom post type title. You can fine tune the bulk updater settings and even clean up the actual image filename.

Thank you so much for all your help in trying to fix this, its very much appreciated indeed. You’ve gone above and beyond what I was expecting in support!
Rest assured I will give great feedback on your plugin anywhere I can!!

I am deleting this plugin becouse I can not use Cyrillic names with it! I would be perfect if it could use a Cyrillic name from a Files title, not a Latin name from its address. Now it is almost useless for me. Back to searching a good plugin.

I used the bulk updater to update almost 3.000 images. It went flawlessly in 15 minutes I think. Amazing tool, thanks a lot! If I ever make serious money with my blogs I will donate or buy the pro version, I promise.

If only I could get the time back that I used over the years populating the dumbest attribute there is online, the alt tag. This plugin makes it work the way it actually should: populate the alt and desc fields THEN I can change them if I want to. Leaving that stuff blank wastes so much time its just silly. Thanks for a great plugin. Stoked!!

I tested it on our WordPress multisite setup and worked perfectly! 944 images done in about 1 minute. I activated it in the Admin Dashboard, and although it is visible in all sites, individual site admins cannot see it, which is good. As the top admin, I can then run the plugin from the desired site, and will only add the captions to the images in the media library for that particular site. Thank you so much, your plugin worked like a charm and you saved us a lot of time and now we are Accessibility compliant on all images, even those posted several years ago.

Nice plugin! I had 1,000 images, Titled appropriately, but needed the Titles to be copied to the captions for a floral gallery project. It did the trick and saved hours. Great tool.
