Upload Clipboard Image Easily

Most people upload and share photo files. But some of us would like to share images from other source as well, such as a screenshot or a piece of image from some drawing software such as Microsoft Visio. Normally we would have to copy the image to clipboard, save it to a file, browse for the file in the file upload dialog and then upload it. It’s not a daunting task but it’s not as convenient as it should be. Would it be really convenient if we can directly upload image from the clibpoard like a normal paste operation?

Based on this idea, we are implementing a feature called “Upload Clipboard Image“. Here is how it works. Just right click in the file input box on the left side of the [browse...] button and select “Upload Clipboard Image” from the popup menu. The clipboard image will be automatically saved to a temporary file for uploading. As simple as that.

Here is the screenshot of using this feature to share photos on facebook,
