External Images Update Released – manual update required

Firstly, my apologies to those of you not using External Images. We have a change coming very soon which will give you the option to choose which email updates to receive.

A fairly major update to External Images has just been released, but included in it is a change to the folder name. Because of this a manual update is required.

To manually update the plugin, follow these steps:

  1. Download the new plugin file from your account – https://www.wpintense.com/my-account/
  2. Deactivate the plugin on your site
  3. Delete the plugin on your site
  4. Upload the new zip file
  5. Activate the plugin

Changes include many requested features including CSS portrait/landscape image cropping, check image sizes (and grab largest) and Facebook OpenGraph tags. You can view the full list of implemented features here:


We have changelogs in most of the plugins now and we’ll be making those changelogs visible on the product pages soon.
