Add Drag and Drop Image Uploading to WordPress

Here’s a tip that applies to WordPress users across the board – from casual bloggers to power publishers with dozens of posts per day. The Magn WP Drag and Drop Upload gives you the ability to automagically upload your images to WordPress posts, using HTML5 and an drag and drop upload script. It’s based on the Ajax Upload plugin developed by Valums.

Please note that this plugin will only work on modern web browsers, as it takes advantage of HTML5 Drag and Drop support. Right now it only works for WordPress posts, but a wishlist of additional features is currently in development, including changing file names on the fly, SEO features and integration with CDN plugins.

This is an excellent addition for any WordPress blogger looking to save a little time in the dashboard every day. Download Magn WP Drag and Drop Upload for free from the WordPress plugin repository.
