rogerbjl – “This plugin is perfect and has met all my needs. I congratulate the author for this great deed!”

Purrrfect – “This is a secret weapon by a great developer. Customer support (make sure you post in the right place) is terrific. The plug-in itself is just splendid. Elegant, customizable, with an insanely wonderful UI. If all plugins were like this one, my life would be perfect. Thank you, Luca!”

Norman C Hoffmann – “This plugin is just Awesome! It caches it own images in its own folders taking a huge load of my thumbnail heavy shopping site. It works even better than it says it will. The customization features of the widgets have allowed me to open up new channels of shopping options with thumbnail support based on categories, post offset, different thumbnail size and more…”

“Take a look at the bottom of my site to see what I mean. All the recent best deals and trending right now widgets are made by this plugin flawlessly and easily. So, easy in fact that I deleted a bunch of other plugins that I was using to try and create this effect.”

“Couple this plugin with Supercache, CDN Synctool, MY CDN, JSDeliver, Google Library, BJ LazyLoad and WidgetCache and you can have a smoking fast image and thumbnail dependent site up and running in no time.”

“Thanks for the great plugin! I plan to to upgrade.”

myroxie – “It’s the only plugin I found that lets me set a default featured image for posts so my clients don’t have to figure out how to set it per post. It is also quite nicely laid out—right out of the box. Responsive support, too. Thanks.”

Mike Zielonka – “It makes my life so easy when i need to add some posts to the content area! Tons of great options!”

Jive Dig – “I burned through about 6 other plugins before finding this one. All i wanted to do was display a thumbnail and post title in the sidebar, but only for WooThemes Canvas custom post type Portfolio. This plugin made it a breeze, and it looks good.”
