tried a few different plugins to help organize our media library of thousands of images. This one is by far the most feature rich. It may not be for everyone because some of the features are technical and very powerful, but if you're into that kind of thing it's perfect.

I've got 12k+ pictures to insert the alt tag in and this plugin is saving me a lot of time. Thanks.

Needs to upgraded to allow import/export. But, as designed, really helps.

I was not paying attention while using another plugin, which added image captions to *all* my existing images. Removal was only possible if upgrading to premium. Luckily this simple plugin (with the complex name), saved my day, allowing me to bulk edit all my media directly from the media screen and thereby remove all those unwanted captions. I really like that approach. Keep up the good work!
