Drag and drop image/file from electron app


I’ve noticed that in my electron app, as well as google chrome, I am not able to drag an image file directly into another program, i.e. Photoshop, Word., instead, I get the file path URL. Although it works fine dragging onto windows desktop, creating the actual image file.

Is there any way I can get this dragging and dropping into other programs to work? From my test it works in Firefox and safari, is there something I’m missing?



Any ideas? I’ve seen a few other people have this problem, but no solution.
