    Hi Justin,

    Campfire doesn't allow 'rich' messages like you're describing, where a single message can include text and images.

    I had originally intended to detect images on the clipboard and offer to upload them but I found that Skitch (http://skitch.com/) fit better into my (and my colleagues') workflow.

    I paste into Skitch, (usually) annotate the image with arrows and comments, and then drag the "drag me" handle from Skitch onto the chat area in Propane.

    I may eventually add "detect clipboard images" to Propane but Skitch does this so much better that I have to admit it's not a high priority - sorry.

    Regards, Trevor

    We use skitch + propane here at mint to solve the problem too. it's a fine workaround but please keep that request on the table :)
