The Quick Edit functionality provides the same Quick Edit option you’re used to for your Posts and Pages, just applied to your Media Library.

Can I define metadata and categories before uploading to the Media Library?

Yes! This can be enabled by using the Defaults Addon.

On the Media > Add New upload screen, you can define the Title, Caption, Alt Tag, Description and Categories to apply to the file(s) that you upload.

How do I output Images by Media Category?

The Dynamic Galleries Addon adds support to WordPress’ [gallery] shortcode, where you can specify one or more Media Categories to display Images from.

Other options include displaying by uploader, search terms and paginating Galleries.

Can I edit and display EXIF metadata?

Yes! This can be enabled by using the EXIF and IPTC Addon.

Hat gutes Potential, leider in der Pro mit den wirklich guten Adons viel zu teuer (wie viele andere Plugins auch).

This is the fourth or fifth media category plugin I've tried, and arguably the best I've used so far. It does exactly what it says, organizes media into categories, using default wordpress styling so it doesn't look like an add-on. No annoying "go pro" banners, easy to configure and worthy of 5 stars. Excellent example and great execution of KISS (Keep It Simple St...).

Ce plugin est simple et léger il fait ce qu'on lui demande, c'est à dire ajouter des catégories et pouvoir trier. Je l'utilise sur plusieurs sites avec le thème Divi et tout fonctionne bien. Merci aux dev

Works like a charm. It creates its own taxonomy and doesn't share the same category pool than posts 👍 Please keep it this simple and doesn't add any fancy features like in so much other plugins. Edit: Actually i have spotted the added navigation item right now … sorry thats totally unnecessary for a plugin like that.
