OnePress Image Elevator


Save tons of time when adding images into your posts! Write with pleasure, fill your lovely website with quality content!

For example, a screen snapshot? Or a region from Photoshop? Or a photo somewhere on your hard disk?

We bet you could add images more often and make your content more attractive if it doesn’t take so many time! If you write tutorials, reviews, news or just articles with a lot of photos, the Image Elevator plugin has been made exactly made for you.

Image Elevator allows you to paste images into your posts directly from clipboard!
In other words, you can paste images directly from your favorite graphical editors or from any screen capture programs. Just copy & paste.

  • Paste Screenshots & Screen Clippings
  • Paste regions from your favorite Graphical Editor
  • Copy images from other websites
  • Paste local images stored on your PC (in Firefox only)

The plugin is a free edition of the premium
Image Elevator plugin
that provides more features: renaming images after pasting and compressing images on the fly.

Installation Instructions

Install and activate the plugin. That’s all. Copy and past images directly into the post editor!


Out of date

It’s out of date. Great concept though.

Also there’s an non-removable banner asking you to upgrade.

Nice plugin but intrusive reminders to upgrade

I like this plugin but I have uninstalled it.

I don’t mind occasional reminders about pro versions of plugins but I will not tolerate my page being constantly bombarded with them.

When I say no thanks, I NEAN no thanks. If I change my mind, I am perfectly capable of figuring out how to upgrade and the constant nagging is more likely, as in this case, to make me dump the plugin.

Love it!

This plugin is great, why this functionality is not part of WordPress out of the box is beyond me…
