WordPress Amazon S3 plugin is a simple plugin which will helps you to transfer your media files used in a post to Amazon S3 cloud. It uses wordpress post filters to scan the post content for images and media files and schedule them for upload queue. If the media file is already scheduled and uploaded to s3 then it will change the urls on the fly for the content. There is no update done to the content or anything in the database. This make this plugin to be really safe.
