    Hi,
    Normally and manually if i upload an image from my desktop to my wordpress, so it's URL will be like this :

    www.mydomain.com/wp-content/uploads/MyImageName.jpg

    but now i'm using a plugin which i feed it with the content + image and it get them posted, So when i give this tool any page to upload to my wordpress it converts it's URL from the above form to the following one :

    www.mydomain.com/wp-content/uploads/49125774621592527.jpg


    My clear question is : is there an option in the wordpress settings which convert the name of the image to some messy numbers as i showed above ? how to fix that in bulk or is there something i have to set in the wordpress ?

    NOTE: I can edit each image's name one by one manually yes but that will takes long time.

    I wish my question was clear
    Thanks

    Wordpress definitely didn't change your file name. The plugin did it. Ask on the plugin's support forum.

    Use different plugin, or use plugin to mass rename filename (last effort, my opinion).
