Share images online with Pasteboard
Share images online with Pasteboard (pasteboard.co). Either ‘drag and drop’ or ‘copy and paste’ the image you want to upload. You also have the option of cropping the image. Upload and you’ll receive a URL where the image can be accessed. It will only upload one image at a time – but it still looks like a useful and simple-to-use tool.
