If you have a PhotoShelter account, use this handy little plugin to add a new widget called “PhotoShelter Search” to your Appearance -> Widgets page in WordPress. Drag this widget to any widgetized region on your site and your site visitors can search your photos hosted at PhotoShelter directly from your WordPress site.
PhotoShelter is web application that many of the top photographers around the world use to sell and license images.
Why Use This Plugin?
Let me tell you a little story…
Bob has a PhotoShelter website. Bob also has a WordPress website. Bob uses his PhotoShelter website for uploading stock photos and for posting private client galleries. He uses his WordPress site for his blog, for his portfolio, and for his about and contact pages.
But Bob has a problem: How do visitors to his WordPress site know how to search for his stock photos that he’s uploaded to his PhotoShelter website? This is where the PhotoShelter Search Widget comes in handy.
If Bob activated this little plugin and dragged the new widget to any widgetized area, then his WordPress site visitors could have easy access to his stock photos. Cha-ching!!!
