Wow! Drag and Drop Images to Docs

Two days ago, Google announced a new enhancement to Google Docs that should improve the way users work on their documents when using images/pictures. Before this, there were three ways of inserting an image: uploading it from your hard drive, pasting an image URL and doing a Google Image Search and selecting any of the search results. But sometimes the exact image you need is on your desktop and you just want to add it to your document quickly. The new enhancement lets you do just that: drag images from your desktop directly into your documents… cool!

For now, the drag and drop functionality is available only for Google Docs. Google hopes to add this to Docs Presentations soon. Also, this is only supported in Chrome, Safari and Firefox. It will be enabled on other browsers as soon as they support the feature.
