Browser Widget and Images

Hi Klaus,

Thanks for answering.

So accessing the URL of the image directly in the image object
puts the image there, which is a good first step.

How is it stored however?  

If one looks at the image source it still shows the URL. 
I find I’m unable to paint on top of the image, probably 
because that would require my being able to modify the
online URL which isn’t possible for the obvious reason.

I probably need to make a local copy of the image to
be able to work on it.  Export image? Copy it to
the clipboard and paste it elsewhere?
