Using the Confluence plugin with Greenshot

Can anybody give me the steps to configure and use the Confluence plugin with Greenshot?

I understand the plugin makes it easy to attach screenshot imsages to Confluence, but I do not know how to use it.

When you clip an image to greenshot you can select the option to upload to confluence:confluence

You need to have your confluence url set in the settings:


Then you select your file and page to upload to:


Besides entering the right url, which is just the base url, you'll also have to enable a setting in Confluence that allows for the submission of the image file to Confluence.

In the Administration section tick the 'Remote API' under 'Feature Settings' in 'General Configuration'.
(This is for Confluence 5.3.4). 

Thanks, this is now found under Administration > General Configuration > Further Configuration in version 5.9.2
