wiki:ScreenshotPastePlugin

Paste images and screenshots into Trac pages

Description

This is a Trac plugin that allows you to attach images and screenshots to tickets, wiki pages, blog pages etc directly from the clipboard. With this plugin it is no longer necessary to save them locally first and then uploading them into Trac.

This plugin uses the Supa applet, the Screenshot UPload Applet, which is written by Christoph Linder in 2010 and LGPL-2.1 licensed.

Usage

Once the plugin is installed, you can easily attach a screenshot or any image you have in the clipboard to a ticket or wiki page.

Attach a screenshot or an image to a Trac ticket

First, grab a screenshot or copy an image, for example, from the browser or an email.

Then, from a ticket, add an attachment as usual:

The first time, you will get a Java security warning. Click Run to run the applet:

Click Paste the Captured Screenshot to provide the screenshot to the plugin applet and to see a preview:

The steps are very similar to the ones used for attaching to a Ticket.

Then, from a wiki page, add an attachment as usual:
