  2. Bulk Resize Images
  3. One-Click to Replace Images
  4. Custom Media Fields and Metadata
  5. Add Your Own Custom Image Sizes
  6. Easy Thumbnail Regeneration 
  7. Easily Manage and Categorize Your Images

As you can see, it simply contains everything that WordPress is missing. Everyone in our office has been using this plugin everyday with a lot of satisfaction. It is easy to use, it looks good, and it is extremely fast and effective. After using it for a while you completely forget that it isn’t part WordPress in the first place. 

I recently had to help a new colleague with an issue on WordPress, and I quickly wanted to regenerate some thumbnails, and I spent 5 minutes confused about where the “regenerate thumbnails” button had gone, before realising he didn’t have the Jixxio plugin installed… This was shocking. I don’t understand how anyone, who deals with a lot of images, can still work without Jixxio’s Media Management Plugin.

In case you were curious to what else would be on this list we also to analyzed the other options out there. So, let’s continue to the number two spot! 

2: Enhanced Media Gallery by wpUXsolutions 

Also the uncontested second place is for enhanced media gallery by wpUXsolutions. With the best part about it being that their beginner/basic plan is free. It allows you to add tags and order your images quite simply! It’s almost like a new skin for WordPress that can be quite useful. However, if you want some of the actually useful functions such as bulk editing (which, Jixxio also provides) you will need to get the premium version for $25. 

3: WordPress Media Library Folders by Filebird

On number three we have the also relatively new plugin by filebird. It is called WordPress media library folders. This is quite a basic plugin that allows you to make folders for your images. Quite handy when you want to be more organized with your media! Furthermore, it has a nice looking UI. The price, at $25, is a little steep for this single functionality. Nonetheless, this plugin has a well deserved spot at number 3 of our top 4 best wordpress plugins for media management 2020. 

4: WordPress Real Media Library – Media Categories / Folders File Manager 

And the occupant of the last spot on our list is WordPress real media library – media categories / folders file manager! Very similar to Filebird on spot number 3, this plugin allows you to organize your media files. It is pretty simply to use with drag and drop and quite effective. We think its slightly less responsive and not as nice looking as Filebird, therefore getting a lower spot. It is also the same price as Filebird, at $25, but it is still a good addition for some WordPress media management!
