Improvements are coming to the WordPress media library in 3.5. If your not using the media library this plugin will import all the external images found in your posts or pages and import them into the media library and attach them.

This plugin will help you convert from using Timthumb to WordPress built in featured image / post thumbnail support

  • Set Featured Image - finds the first attached image to post and sets it as the featured image
  • Import media from a directory on your server and add them to your media library
