YouTrack screenshot applet allows you to take a screenshot, customize it, and add it to an issue right from YouTrack, without installing and using any specific utilities.
Screenshot applet is invoked whenever you use options Attach > Screenshot and Attach > Image from clipboard.
Note for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion users If, after obtaining Mac OS X Lion, YouTrack Screenshot applet does not start, please check your Java preferences:
Open Applications > Utilities > Java Preferences.
In General settings select the 'Enable applet plug-in and Web Start applications' check box:
Restart your browser.
This simple procedure should solve the problem.
