Features

Illustration of WordPress plugin Image Source Controls key feature “Overlay”

Display credits for individual images

Put image credits where they’re noticed most prominently—right on top of the image itself!

Place them as a striking Overlay or customize the layout yourself.

This works for Featured images, Galleries, sidebars—you name it!

Display credits for all images on a page

Keep your images free from distracting elements and register the sources of all images used on a page as a collective list.

Either have Image Source Control inject the Per-page list below the content automatically—yes, also on archive pages, thank you for asking—or choose the position manually.

Display image credits for your whole website

Stay on top of images and their sources thanks to a central site-wide register.

Rely on Image Source Control to collect copyright info of each and every image from all over your website and show them as a comprehensive Global list on an existing or dedicated page of your liking.

Never miss a source

Prevent unnecessary troubles that result from missed image sources.

Use Image Source Control’s strong backend toolbox to track and handle missing image sources, including externally hosted images.

If you show images from just a handful of creators, Image Source Control makes your life even easier by letting you define standard and fallback attributions.

Manage image sources conveniently

Photographers dumping their drives on your desk? Don’t break a sweat—take on image libraries of any size by bulk-editing copyright info.

Image Source Control will let you breeze through the task of updating copyright info by editing them directly in the Media Library list view.

It’s up to you—choose what to include in your image credits and how to style them:

  • Provide links both to the copyright owner as well as to the full license text—in accordance with most licensing conditions!
  • Add your own licenses to the supplied catalog.
  • Freely determine the content of the attribution line.
  • Override the default markup and styling.

And for developers, Image Source Control offers plenty of useful action and filter hooks to clip into.

Use the linking feature to direct visitors to your buying site. Do we mind? Heck, we encourage you!

Testimonials

Time-saver for my team

When the number of articles on our blog grew, I noticed my team running into trouble managing copyright info for images that we used from external sources.

With Image Source Control, we’ve found a legally reliable and convenient tool for this task. In particular, batch editing and easy linking to the owner’s site really help my team with their work. It’s obvious the ISC devs know what editors need.

Florian Daugalies, MH Themes


A wonderful plugin that benefits our editorial work

ISC helps us display images on our websites in a legally compliant way. All necessary input fields are provided within the media library. The preselection of Creative Commons licenses and the ability to set links are sensible features. All in all, Image Source Control is a wonderful plugin that really benefits our editorial work.

Thanks to Thomas as well for the great support on the customization of our sites.

Christoph Görlach, PRO Medienmagazin


Great plugin for managing image credits

ISC is really an awesome plugin for handling your image credits and sources. Works like a charm. The image overlay is really nice and a perfect solution to display the necessary information.

Bonus points: Had a small issue with some images on my website, support was super fast and came up with a solution for that.
