  • choose which categories can be altered by the plugin and/or select specific articles,
  • create the article image with background image, logo, article title/intro/meta tag/custom field and credentials,
  • use any TrueType font for the text,
  • preview the resulting images before they appear on the site,
  • add plugin syntax {imagefromarticle} into any article and the plugin will be triggered for that article,
  • include/exclude articles that already contain a full article image,
  • optionally use the full article image as background when the full article image exists,
  • use syntax to insert additional information into the credentials (like 'date created'),
  • easily add styles to the output image,
  • optionally add meta tags to the article page (following the Open Graph Protocol),
  • cache the stylesheet for better server performance.
