    This is a TinyMCE plugin that is included by default and provides access to your Zenphoto albums and images as well as Zenpage pages, news articles and news categories to easily include them into your pages and articles. Obviously inspired by ZenphotoPress by Alessandro "Simbul" Morandi.

    You will see a button for it on the TinyMCE tool bar:


    There are detailed instructions included in the main window itself and here is a separate small tutorial named Using tinyZenpage that gives you a more visual impression on how it works.
