WordPress: Featured image plugin

  1. Select ‘Plugins|Add New’
  2. Search for ‘Pixabay Free Images’
    • Note that this is somewhat limited due to being free; for more and better stock images you will want a plugin that accesses paid services like ‘Getty Images’. Also I have not yet researched this fully as I usually roll my own images.
  3. Select ‘Install’ and then ‘Activate’.
  4. Also ‘Activate auto-updates’
  5. To use it, go to ‘Plugins’ and under ‘Download Free Images’, select ‘See Library’.
  6. Once you’ve found an image you want select ‘Download’.
  7. It’s now in your ‘Media Library’.
