Screenshot Paste plugin for Trac

Description

A Trac plugin to allow pasting screenshots or other images captured or copied in the clipboard directly as attachements to tickets, Wiki pages, etc., without the need to first saving as images and then uploading them.

This plugin uses the Supa applet, the Screenshot UPload Applet, which is Copyright 2010 Christoph Linder and is developed under the LGPL 2.1.



How-to


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.

Attach a screenshot or an image to a Trac Wiki page


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

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

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