Please recommend plugin for quick picture insertion into post (4 posts)

    Sometimes, I am writing blog posts about some website or some photograph I have found online, and I need to insert a thumbnail of that website screenshot or of that photo into the upper left corner of the post. I am doing it manually nowadays - save the photo to my local harddisk, create a thumbnail with photo editing software, then upload the thumbnail jpg to my webserver and finally insert the appropriate html code into the post. Now I wonder, if there is a pluging which could automate this process as much as possible. (The biggest hurdle is uploading the file.) In the ideal world, I would just copy the original picture to the clipboard, and the plugin would create the thumbnail and insert it automatically to the post. Maybe I am asking too much, anyway: is there any pluging which could simplify this process? Thanks!

    A partial answer would be to use the Upload feature built into WordPress. If you click "Upload" on the admin menu (you may need to enable it under options, I'm not sure), you can upload pictures, create thumbnails of them, and get an HTML tag to use to display the picture all at once.

    The easiest way by far is by using my wp-mail hack! It allows you to send an e-mail with a photo attached to your wordpress blog and viola!
