AttachmentID
In WordPress you can upload, store, and display a variety of file types (media). The most common file types are image, video and audio files, but other file types can also be managed within WordPress.  Each of these files can be considered attachments and each attachment has an associated ID, which can be found under the file's name in the media library, (e.g. ID:4159).
