How to: Add Social Share Icons to WordPress Images

July 18th in Wordpress Plugins by .

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.

This plugin has a simple design. You can add social buttons to your images from the TinyMCE toolbar. You can pick and choose which social networks you would like to target. WordPress Image Hover Showcase offers fade, slide up, and many other effects. Currently, this plugin supports Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, Digg, Delicious, and StumbleUpon. The buttons are shown on hover.

WordPress Image Hover Showcase is simple to use and gives you control over the images you would like to enhance. Too bad you can’t automatically apply it to images you already have hosted on your site. That can be done with a bit of coding though.
