This question already has an answer here:

The post editor image uploader supports drag-and-drop and it also supports pasting an image directly into the window.

The chat uploader does support drag-and-drop (as long as you drop directly into the filename text box) but does not support pasting an image into the window.

Can chat get the same upload dialog that the sites have?
