With Smart Auto Featured Image, you can virtually use only one template to generate multiple featured image. Thanks to its dynamic capabilities, one template will render differently on each different post.

  • Post title
  • Post author
  • Post category
  • Post type
  • Meta / custom meta
  • Date in any format
  • Site domain
  • Yoast SEO focus keyword
  • ACF field

Dynamic Text

Dynamic text automatically picks up on the corresponding the content from the post being edited and integrates it into your design.

Dynamic Image

Templates are composed of multiple layers in a similar fashion as Adobe Photoshop. Layers can be moved/resized/rotated and arranged along the grid or moved on a fixed axis.

  • First image found from the post content
  • Author image
  • Site logo
  • YouTube thumbnail from embed
  • ACF image

Conditional content

Conditional layers is a powerful tool that lets you render something on your design only if the required condition is met.

For example, if you write articles about cat and dogs, you could show a cat icon for the posts of category “cats”, a dog icon for the posts of category “dogs”, and a paw icon for any other category.

ACF Integration

Seemless integration with Advanced Custom Fields.

Use any ACF Text or Image field into your designs. Your ACF fields are automatically listed into Smart Auto Featured Image.

Many templates included

Build your template from scratch or choose from one of the many included templates if you need some inspiration to get started !

  • What is a credit ?

    A credit is equivalent to one Featured Image generation.

    For example, with 10 credits you can generate 10 Featured Images.

  • My subscription starts in the middle of the month, how are my credits calculated ?

    Credits are reset on the 1st of every month. However, if your license starts on the 12th of the month for example, a proration is applied, and ceiled to the upper number.

    If the current month is the month your license starts:

    ProratedCredits = CurrentPlanMaxCredits * (31 – LicenseStartDay + 1) / 31;

    For example, if your Plan has a maximum of 100 credits available and you started your license on the 12th, you will be able to use 100 * (31 – 12 + 1) /31, or 65 credits until the end of the first month. After the first month, you can normally use 100 credits each month. 

    If the current month is the month your license expires:

    ProratedCredits = CurrentPlanMaxCredits * (LicenseStartDay + 1) / 31;

  • Does a preview use a credit ?

    No, a credit is only used when you request a Featured Image generation

  • How are the featured images generated ?

    Upon requesting a featured image generation, template data is sent to our servers. Our image processor then turns this data into standard image files. Once the image is generated, it is downloaded to your website automatically and remains there forever. The image generation process will not use any ressource on your side. 

  • What happens if I don’t use all of my credits ?

    The monthly credit count is reset every month. All unused credits are lost and cannot be transferred.

  • Can I buy extra credits once in a while ?

    Unfortunately this is not possible at the moment. If you need extra credits, you need to upgrade to the upper plan (a prorating will be applied)

  • Can I upgrade my license later if I need more credits ?

    Yes ! You can start with the 1 site / 25 credits license to get started. If you need more credits, for example, 6 months after the initial purchase, you can upgrade your license  to have more credits and a proration will be applied.

  • I have only one site but I need more than 25 credits, what plan should I get ?

    Each plan is composed of 2 variables: a number of site you can use your license on, and a pool of credits that is shared between your sites.

    So if you only have one site but you need to generate 100 featured images per month, you need to subscribe to the 3 sites – 100 credits/m plan.

    If you have 2 sites but you need only 10 credits per site, you would need to subscribe to the 2 sites – 65 credits/m plan.

  • Do you offer monthly plans ?

    Smart Auto Featured Image can only be purchased as an annual subscription. No monthly subscription is available at the moment.

  • Can I buy a lifetime license ?

    No. Considering the nature of the product and because the image generation happens on our end, we do not offer a lifetime license for Smart Auto Featured Image.

  • Is Smart Auto Featured Image compatible with Elementor ?

    Yes. Even if you build your pages with Elementor, you can generate featured images normally from the Gutenberg block editor, before entering the Elementor builder. Your Elementor page will not be altered in any way as it is fully compatible.
