Pressbox

Description

The Pressbox plugin adds a new tab to the Media Upload screen that allows you to insert images and files from Dropbox into your posts.

Additionally, the plugin provides a new shortcode that lets you add links or display images anywhere you want on your blog.

This plugin is under heavy development so please feel free to send me feedback, bug reports, and feature requests!

Credits:

This plugin bears a great debt to the work of Joe Doleson’s Wp To Twitter plugin for his excellent example of OAuth integration with WordPress.
