Alternatively, you can simply copy and paste the image itself.

  1. Right Click on the image
  2. Click on "Copy Image"
  3. Click on the Metabunk editor window
  4. Paste
The image should automatically be uploaded as an attachment. In the animation below you will see the image appear in the attachments section. Don't save the message until it appears there.
