ImageLinks Interactive Image Builder for WordPress


ImageLinks is a WordPress plugin that lets you tag your images with any web content, so making them more interactive. Using this plugin, you can take any image and tag it with practically any web hosted content, such as hyperlinks to webpages, albums hosted on photo services, videos (YouTube, Vimeo etc) and countless other things. Basically, if an online hosted digital content has a unique URL, chances are that you can tag it on your image using this plugin. It also features rich previews of the tagged media. This means that if you want to watch a YouTube video tagged on an image, you can do it directly on the image, without having to even open up YouTube. It’s similar to thinglink service. Use this plugin to create interactive news photography, infographics, imagemap, product map and floor map and shoppable product catalogs in minutes!

Using [imagelinks id=”123″] shortcode, you can publish an interactive image on any Page or Post in your WordPress sites.

This is the LITE version of the official ImageLinks – Interactive Image Builder for WordPress plugin which comes with support and doesn’t have some limitations.

I’d like access to more features and support. How can I get them?

You can get access to more features and support by visiting the CodeCanyon website and
purchasing the plugin.
Purchasing the plugin gets you access to the full version of the ImageLinks plugin, automatic updates and support.

What is the difference between Lite and PRO

The lite version has only two limits:
1) You can create and use only one item
2) Your published item will have a little icon
All other features are the same as PRO has.

This useful plugin is working very well and does exactly what we needed. The author was very helpful with a special problem we had so that we could solve it quickly and without much effort. Thanks a lot for this plugin and your help!

Great plugin. Plus the author sent me JS code to fix a scrolling issue – and – CSS code to improve user experience – and this was before I bought the Pro version.

Great but it’s written nowhere in your explanation that Lite version will authorize ONLY ONE MAP !!!!! So I work one hour on a second map and when i published it, a message appear that i can’t because i don’t have the paid version !!!!! I will change my review if you change your description here 😉
