Linking to All Image Sizes Flickr Style

Snippets by IsItWP

Do you want to automatically link to all image sizes? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to linking to all image sizes Flickr style in WordPress.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

function my_get_image_size_links() {
	if ( !wp_attachment_is_image( get_the_ID() ) )
	$links = array();
	$sizes = get_intermediate_image_sizes();
	$sizes[] = 'full';

	foreach ( $sizes as $size ) {
		$image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_the_ID(), $size );

		if ( !empty( $image ) && ( true == $image[3] || 'full' == $size ) )
			$links[] = "<a class='image-size-link' href='{$image[0]}'>{$image[1]} &times; {$image[2]}</a>";
	return join( ' <span class="sep">/</span> ', $links );

Add this code snippet to the image.php or attachment.php template file of your WordPress theme.

<?php if ( wp_attachment_is_image( get_the_ID() ) ) { ?>
	<div class="image-meta">
		<?php printf( __( 'Sizes: %s', 'example-textdomain' ), my_get_image_size_links() ); ?>
<?php } ?>

  2. Thanks for this snippet – works great! I’m trying to display only certain images sizes but had no success so far. Any hint how to do that?

    Also I’d like to show these links on the single post template…

    1. Hi Thomas, well $sizes is an array you could add a statement within foreach to only display specific sizes.

      1. Ok, I see, thanks! And regarding the display on the single post template?
