You don’t need to activate this add-on product after buildout installation. See the instance.log file to check whether Collective.clipboardupload was properly installed.


Collective.clipboardupload is a Python package, developed to simplify the process of inserting images into visual editor without the need to upload the image.

After you have installed the product, you can drag and drop picture from local folder, make print screen or select an area of image, opened in, for example, Paint, and copy it to the clipboard. Switch to Plone TinyMCE editor and Paste using your browser menu Edit -> Paste or key combination. The picture will be uploaded to the same folder, which contains an edited page, and stored as an image content type. Title is automatically generated and can be changed any time. Furthermore, the path to the image itself upon saving in TinyMCE is rendered as resolveUID link.
