Some image hosting sites like Imgur and min.us support image uploading via drag-and-drop in Chrome and Firefox. It would be nice if you could upload an image and add it to your post by dropping it on the edit page.

Since a few days, a new image upload is being tested on Meta, adding support for paste and drag-and-drop:

However, this does not support direct paste or drag-and-drop into the edit page; one first needs to click the "Image" button (Ctrl+G) to show the upload dialog.

And: maybe it's part of A/B Testing, just like a new sign up form. –  Arjan Feb 23 '13 at 18:18
It's not, but it hasn't been deployed beyond Meta yet either. Can't wait for it to show up in chat... –  Shog9 Feb 23 '13 at 20:05
@shog9, if this post is too early, then of course feel free to delete (and also in the Recent Changes post, and some comments). It works great, by the way! –  Arjan Feb 23 '13 at 23:34
I don't see any reason not to document it - I'm pretty sure this isn't going away, and it could probably use some more attention (and stress-testing) before it goes live elsewhere anyway. –  Shog9 Feb 23 '13 at 23:37
It does allow pasting images –  badp Feb 24 '13 at 0:59
Sure, @badp, after you first clicked the "Image" button (Ctrl+G). In Chrome on a Mac, I cannot paste directly into the editor, which is what the question kind of asked for. Are you seeing something different? –  Arjan Feb 24 '13 at 9:34
or paste or drag-and-drop sounds wrong. Replace the second "or" with a slash, like this: or paste/drag-and-drop –  DJDavid98 Feb 24 '13 at 10:34
Very cool guys! Best/Website/Ever ;) –  user66001 Feb 27 '13 at 14:00
(@Shog9 and all: I noticed it's live on SO as well; please feel free to delete this when the team makes some official announcement here!) –  Arjan Feb 28 '13 at 23:24
