How to: Add Social Share Icons to WordPress Images

It is not a secret that sites that have attractive visuals get more action on Pinterest, Google+, and other top social networks. You can always do the hard work and hope for your visitors to share your images to their favorite sites. A better approach would be to add Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Pinterest buttons to each and every image or just the ones you choose. WordPress Image Hover Showcase is an attractive plugin that takes care of that for you.
