No problem. The WordPress image engine is one of the most advanced and flexible ones at the moment. WordPress offers a wide range of functionalities and tags, which allows for and easy handling of images and files, associating them with posts, categories, pages and other elements with total freedom.

However, the problem with all these funcionalities is that finding the propper way to associate data and get a specific result can get really hard. In an attempt to do that, many people have tried to do it by setting through custom fields, ignoring that WordPress has a large platform with many resources at our disposal to do that.

What isn't Wp Smart Image?

It is not a filter that works inside the content. WP Smart Image only works in the template areas and it's use is focused to the template's file system.

It is not a plugin that changes other functionalities behaviour. It's a resource that lets you take advantage of the already existing functionalities provided by WordPress.
