This plugin adds a block style called “Photocopy” to the Image, Gallery, and Media & Text blocks. When applied, it roughly emulates the look of a high-contrast photocopy.
- Upload the plugin files to the
/wp-content/plugins/plugin-namedirectory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
- Activate the plugin through the “Plugins” screen in WordPress
- Select an Image, Gallery, or Media & Text block.
- Using either the block switcher or the block settings, choose the \”Photocopy\” block style.
How does this work?
The block style applies a handful of CSS filters to your images or text. It looks kind of like a photocopy.
Why are the text styles labeled experimental?
These filters are a little unpredictable — different browsers render them in different ways. But hey, photocopiers are a little unpredictable too! It’s more lifelike this way.
Are there any known is’sues?
- The effect doesn’t play great with Image block captions at the moment. The overlay pattern sometimes shows up behind the caption.
- The warped styles cut off the resize drag handles.
Can I contribute to this plugin?
- Of course! It’s open source. Visit the GitHub repository to browse the code or ’submit ideas.
