How to automate the creation of image titles in WordPress

Format Media Titles WordPress

Like you already may know, image titles are generated automatically in WordPress. But this automating does not really lead to good image titles, because WordPress generates it by looking at the image file name. So in case you named an image like this:

The image title generated by WordPress will look like this:

This is really not a good title! Therefore the plugin Format Media Titles can help you to make better titles, automatically.

As you can see you can e.g. decide which characters should be removed from the image title and declare the capitalization method.

Ok actually this does not really help you a lot when the file name of the image is the same as in the given example. But let me give you another example. Let´s suppose your image is named

Better_wordpress-title.jpg.

This is a common image file name. As you can see the 3 words are separated by an underscore and the first letters are not capitalized, except of the B in Better. The generated title would look exactly the same as the file name. But when using the Plugin you can easily make it look like this:

Better WordPress Title

This is a much better title. And furthermore once adjusted you don´t have to waste your time on altering the image title for each and every image. The plugin will do all the work for you and you will be much faster when creating your articles.
