There would be useful to have an easy way to insert an screen shot, for example the way that fogbugz allow. And the
screen shot would be nice to be inside the description not as an attachment.

Here is the description...

"FogBugz Screenshot is a simple program for Windows or
Macintosh that lets you easily capture images and send them
to FogBugz. Clicking on the bug icon takes a snapshot of
your screen and opens the Fogbugz Screenshot window, where
you can crop the image and add highlights.

The Windows version puts the bug icon in the taskbar at the

I've been dreaming of this ability to grab a screenshot, mark
it up, and submit a bug report - with a minimum of keystrokes.
Looks like fogbugz nailed it. check out their feature tour
starting here:

since in the rails world we are all building web based apps,
if we could integrate the right button into our app - like an
issue button somewhere on every page, or possibly in the browser
toolbar - to provide similar capability for Redmine, that would
be awesome. Redmine would be running as a separate rails app
somewhere else of course - so the bug report must be submitted
as a web request.

This sounds like a job for a Firefox extension (For the reporting
site of things).

Having said that nothing breaks a nice layout like arbitrarily
embedding an inline screenshot into a page, I prefer to keep
everything that isn't text in the attachments.

Sounds wondreful... I'm dreaming about this for months... Starting
screen capture app, remembering right shortcup, caputuring, saving
file somewhere, switching to browser, uploading file... It's
so so so much time consuming, so I almost never do this...
unfortunately. I'm voting for this.

Actually, Source Forge Enterprise Edition does it in the browser.
In Windows, you press Alt+Print Screen (that copies the screenshot
into clipboard), then click Add Screenshot button on the issue
page, a new window opens with some Java applet and voila! --
it automatically retrieves the screenshot from clipboard and
attaches it to the bug report.
