Get a WordPress Image’s Attachment ID from its URL with a PHP Function from Pippin Williamson

pippin's plugins | retrieve image id from url
EDIT: As the comments below have pointed out, WordPress in later versions contains the attachment_url_to_postid() function, which is designed to do the job of the code below. However, on at least one project I’ve worked on (a WordPress multisite), WordPress’s function didn’t work and Pippin’s did. I’d try the WordPress function first and Pippin’s as a fallback.

You know who’s really great? Pippin Williamson.

It’s not nearly as hard or scary as it seems.
