Live Demo

This is the live-demo of the WordPress-plugin Garee’s Random Image
(Note: Due to this running on my own blog all the random images are from category 30)

Example 1

Show a random image:

[random_image category='30']

Platz nehmen und warten
Kulturtag in San Francisco


Example 2

Show a random image, but set size to “medium” and tell both image- and post-link to open a new window:

[random_image category="30" size="medium" window_image=1 window_post=1]

Häuschen mit Schuhschrank und Sessel
Klein aber fein


Example 3

Show a medium-sized random image using the “scrapbook”-template:

[random_image template='scrapbook' category='30' size='medium']

Das Tor zu Downtown am Broadway



works also great with different backgrounds:

Evan, Katy, Jennifer und Enrique (von links nach rechts, ohne Anna)
Zumwalt Meadow

Example 4

Show a random thumbnail using the “rounded”-template:

[random_image template='rounded' category='30' size='thumbnail']

[random_image template='rounded' style='2' category='30' size='60,60']

Leuchtturm am Point Reyes Luxus-Zelle für die Schwerstverbrecher

The image on the right is generated using a custom-size and the template’s custom-attribute ‘style’ to choose an alternative style for the rounded image.

Example 5

Show a random image in full resolution and add the title of the post with a link to the post itself:

[random_image_template category='30']{{{full_image}}} {{{post}}}[/random_image_template]

Mit der Fähre von der Canal St. zu Algiers Point
Zu Fuss

Example 6

Show a random image using the “polaroid”-template. Use the template’s custom attributes to change the font-size and the width of the polaroid:

[random_image template='polaroid' category='30' polaroid_font_size='14px' polaroid_width='360px']
