Background transparency problem in NextGen Gallery thumbnails

Featured Image

For some time I didn't keep my post thumbnails in NextGen Gallery. On this website they are all PNG images with a transparent background. The thumbnails created by NextGen were losing background transparency and their background was black. It was unacceptable because of theme switching. My themes use different backgrounds and thumbnails looked rather ugly. Finally I found this post: ...plugin-nextgen-gallery-problems-with-png-transparency-thumbnails which offered a solution. It requires a modification of NextGen plugin code and after every upgrade of NextGen you'll have to remember to re-apply this patch.

FPW Category Thumbnails plugin

Featured Image

Setting featured image for post/page could be very time consuming, especially when your media library holds hundreds of pictures. Very often we select the same thumbnail for posts in particular category. Wouldn't be much easier to have a thumbnail being set automatically when we choose a category while creating or updating posts/pages? I could not find in WordPress.org repository any plugins doing exactly what I wanted and decided to write my own. It started as a plugin just for myself. Exactly 12 lines of code. Then I decided to share it with others. And here it is - FPW Category Thumbnails. Click on a link above this post to see the plugin in WordPress repository.truculent-ending
