Paste screenshots into body of Issue - as images¶
UPDATE August 2015: have moved github souce to this fork - as seems to work better with newer Redmine versions (see forum #40491):
See pictures of the PlugIn in use, pasting images directly into an issue:
This plugin was a show-stopper for us - without it we can not interest our users in a move to RedMine! They say 'a screenshot paints a 1000 words'! And they often have many screenshots, with text for each one explaining some detail - that use case means that the images must be mixed in with text: (images attached as file attachments at the bottom, is just no good)
Note: the paste works all all three possibilities: raising a new Issue, 'Update' of an issue, and in a 'Comment' to an issue.
Also see the Help Desk Plugin for which it was first used:
Also see plugin that handles images on inbound emails (eg to the HelpDesk above:) placing screenshots into the right place in the generated issues (ie NOT stripping them into file attachments)
a) Does NOT make the screenshot an attachment at the page foot - but as visible within the page, where you pasted it:¶
so allows you to enter text, then paste a screenshot, then enter more text, then another screenshot etc - all in the one Issue/comment.
This is something that no other plugin we searched for could do.
This means it will only work on browsers supporting 'clipboardData' object - so this excludes Firefox version 22 onwards.
Other plugins, that don't do the same¶
http://www.redmine.org/plugins/clipboard_image_paste Just attaches the images, doesn't show them within the Issue body: and it also forces uses of Java too.
http://www.redmine.org/plugins/image_uploader_2_2_2 - this just uploads images you already have as files on your file-system, by browsing and find them, and then upload - that's not as quick as 'screenshot and paste'.
http://www.redmine.org/plugins/redmine_attach_screenshot_2 - it does not insert them as images into the page, but as attachment files to the page it seems.
Note: Aug 2015:¶
changed source GitHub fork, previously used to be this fork:
which no longer supported Redmine 3.x etc
