Better File Uploader is a plugin that replaces and improves upon the Movable Type file upload tool.

  • Multiple file uploading and 1-click uploading put a focus on speed and efficiency
  • Resize on Upload keeps all images sized appropriately
  • Watermarking ensures all images have your branding
  • Consistent formatting with HTML Wrappers and definable image attributes
  • Easy photo gallery creation using Lightbox or EDSMT Photoblog templates
  • Specify a default location on your server where files are uploaded
  • Automatic thumbnail image sizing based on your settings
  • Supports MT4's Assets capabilities
  • Customize the upload interface to suit your needs
  • ...and so much more! The power of Better File Uploader lies in its flexibility to meet your needs.


  • ImageMagick or NetPBM are needed to create thumbnail images, but neither is required to use Better File Uploader’s other features.
  • ImageMagick is required to use the watermarking feature.
