Where can you drag and drop or paste images?

Question: If I take a screen capture from somewhere, or attempt to drag and drop an image, what are the possible targets and what’s expected to happen?

Answer: That’s a tricky question to answer. Let’s try tabulating the results.

Image source Target block Result
Clipboard anywhere New image block created
Clipboard Cover New image block created in the Cover block.
Dragged from other browser window Image Drop files to upload, but no image created
Dragged from other browser window elsewhere Creates an image block using the image URL
Pasting images from the clipboard or drag/drop
