When I paste an image in MacOS Preview and save it as JPG the file is about 7x smaller than when I paste it with your fantastic plugin. It would be great if you could apply some level of (configurable?) compression of JPG images. Keep up to good work!

The plugin does exactly what you expect. I would like to suggest something: it would be perfect if we could change the pattern for file names when uploaded to the server. By default, it uses the title of the post, but my language is not English, so the file is saved with special characters like ç and ã. This have caused me serious server issues in past (so I use to save images only in lowercase and no special characters). Because of it I'll will not be using the plugin, but for those who don't care about it, it's a good option. Thank you!
