The RSS Image Feed Plugin will not provide a feed of images. It only will add the first image of the post to your blogfeed. WP automatically displays all the post’s images at the beginning of an entry, when the content is chosen for the feed. Browsers display those differently; Firefox will not show them, Opera will etc.
With the plugin, your feeds will show only one image on top of the entry, no matter whether you have the content or the excerpt as default.
We wanted to show images in our articlefeed in every browser. As the excerpt doesn’t show an image anyway and we are not using the content, there was a need for a plugin. As we didn’t find anything that would not limit the displayed images to just one, we had to write our own plugin.
The current version is 4.2 and can deal with pure gallery posts an video thumbnails.
