Today, I found that clicking on the "image upload" icon now presents one with what appears to be a dashed "drag-and-drop" box containing the message "Click Here to upload image". (Just a day or two ago, I was getting the file selection window I'd been getting for close to two years.) However, I am unable to get this to accept an image by dragging either a .png or a .jpg into it.

Has there been an alteration to this function recently? Is there something in particular I should know about using this feature now? Thanks.

Yes, SE rolled out a new image uploader today. It looks fancier, and allows to drag and drop images into it. There were some issues on sites with old CSS model, but not here as far as I know.

I am able to use it for upload: here is a .png file I dragged and dropped. If you are unable to upload, I suggest restarting the browser; if it persists, post a bug report here, specifying the browser and operating system.

    $\begingroup$ Thanks. It must be so new I couldn't even find anything on the boards about it. My version of Safari, which is what I generally use, is pretty (darn) old, but I did get the upload to work with Firefox 25 (which just updated on my machine). $\endgroup$ – colormegone Jun 23 '15 at 2:35
