What is the easiest way to copy an image attachment in gmail onto the clipboard so I can paste it into another program? I would like to avoid littering my downloads directory with temporary files.
I feel like this is so simple and useful that I must be missing something.
My current process is:
- Download image
- 'Show in folder' from bottom bar (chrome, or download menu in firefox)
- Open image from folder
- Ctrl + C from image viewer
- Close image viewer
- Delete downloaded image from download directory
- Close folder view
- You are now back where you started but with the image on your clipboard
Example Email view
The preview window doesn't help, also only allowing downloading
