You may very well copy and paste from a browser, BUT, if that copy/paste
is dragging the mouse across an area to select the copy, you are ONLY
copying at screen resolution and WILL LOOSE RESOLUTION from the displayed
image.  If you are copying the web address of the image and using that,
you retain the displayed image's resolution.  

In order to retain the image's resolution provided it is greater than your
screen, you *must* download subj image or use it's web address with
amounts to the same.

Usually one can discern the web address of an image by right clicking upon
it, unless it is displayed by flash and then digging into the flash source
is necessary.  There are apps available that will provide flash hidden
addresses.

I very routinely copy/paste images from by browser (Firefox) to Gimp. 
This paste the original image, without any loss (and this works on 
20MPix images...). You can also copy the image URL in your browser and

This doesn't answer the question of integrating GIMP with your browser but 
something to consider is this:


If you are on a WIN platform, the snipping tool image can be saved as a JPG 
or a PNG. PNG will give you a noticeably better image than JPG, especially 
with type. Take a look at something at 500%.

Subject: [Gimp-user] Integrate gimp and browser

I frequently work with scanned or photographed handwritten documents and 
have
found and written tools for GIMP that make them more readable. This works 
for
files, but I also often read documents online. I would like to apply the 
same
tools to images in my browser but I am not sure where to start. Print screen 
and

paste does not work because of loss of resolution. Is there a browser that
allows me to route the screen through GIMP? Is there a way to display web 
pages

in GIMP? Is there something clever I haven't thought of?
