Instagram-ish WordPress Filter Shortcode Plugin

That beautiful link-bait title and a picture of a dead leaf! That’s why I’m a social media guru.

With that self-promotion out of the way . . . I found this CSS library from Una.1 It lets you apply instagram-like filters to image via CSS. Also got to have a nice interaction with Una via Twitter to clarify the license.

It fit a need that a professor was expressing for one of our WordPress installs so I wrapped it in a plugin/shortcode combination.

The structure goes like so . . .
[ cssgram img="" filter="_1977" ]

    This is very cool, wondering about some randomizing or combining. FWIW, the filters do not show their effect in the RSS feed, which makes sense as it’s unformatted html

      I think that the randomizer would be be pretty easy. I had mixed feelings about making this as I’m not a huge Instagram fan but who am I to judge?

      I hadn’t thought about the RSS aspect.
