If you have used WordPress for any length of time, you know there isn’t any slick way to manage all your media once it is uploaded. And the more media you add, the more cumbersome it becomes. I know this personally with a site that is 10 years old and includes hundreds and hundreds, if not thousands, of images including screenshots. And searching those in the media library just doesn’t cut it.
What About Managing Your WooCommerce Product Shots?
Now if you are or have created an online store, you likely will be uploading images of your products. But unlike those blog post images, often a single product can easily multiply for specific reasons.
- You have several different colors
- You have several different styles
- You have numerous angles you have used to easily show your product
Those are just three examples and with the variety of images for both electronic and physical products out there, I’m sure that only touches the surface.
We Organize Through Folders
You may or may not remember the old days of manila folders. And those huge, metal file cabinets. We may chuckle at how archaic they seem now, but heck, they did the job.
Then came computers. And those nifty little folders that helped you to organize everything. Folders, sub-folders, sub-sub-folders. Can imagine how many folders you have clicked on over your computer life? They are so useful. So handy. We can put things where they need to be and (most times) easily find them.
WP Media Folder Plugin for WordPress
Awhile back I did a post on this plugin. Although it works for all media that ends up in your media library, I touched on the fact that it worked with WooCommerce. And from the feedback I heard from any who first discovered it on my site, I knew it was something, for many people, that was certainly needed. So for those searching for that solution for their WooCommerce product images, I thought I would share it again here on our blog with a link to that full post.
