Screenshot Paste plugin for Trac

Description

A Trac plugin to allow pasting screenshots captured in the clipboard directly as attachements to tickets, Wiki pages, etc., without the need to first saving as an image and then uploading it.

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.

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.
