!This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.


Image Paste allows you to copy and paste images from your desktop to the WordPress editor

How does it work?

  1. Simply open any image on your desktop, whether it's with an image editor, Word, etc.
  2. Copy the image using Ctrl-C (if on Windows) or Cmd-C (if on Mac OSX).
  3. Go to WordPress and open the page/post editor.
  4. Click on Ctrl-V (if on Windows) or Cmd-V (if on Mac OSX) and the image will be pasted.

A copy of the image is automatically uploaded to your uploads folder and you can edit the image in WordPress like you would edit any other image.

Is it compatible with any browser?

Only Firefox (version 18 or higher) and Google Chrome (version 24 or higher) are supported. Depending on the take up of the plugin, we will be adding support for Ms Internet Explorer. Safari is currently not compatible at all because of the way it handles embedded images, we're waiting for a fix from Apple regarding this.

Requires: 3.4 or higher
Compatible up to: 3.6.1
