    <h1>HTML5 paste image to page</h1>
    <blockquote>Did you know that <code>HTML5</code> lets the user paste an image into the DOM tree? See a demo here and find the code needed in this <a href="https://gist.github.com/STRd6/5286415">Gist</a>. I first came across this code here in a post <a href="http://strd6.com/2011/09/html5-javascript-pasting-image-data-in-chrome/">HTML5 JavaScript Pasting Image Data in Chrome</a> by <a href="http://strd6.com/author/yahivin/">Daniel X Moore</a> (from 2011!).</blockquote>
    <strong>Instructions</strong>: Copy an image to clipboard (For instance: <strong>Mac</strong>: <code>cmd+shift+ctrl+4</code> and  <strong>Win</strong>: <code>Alt+PtrScr</code>), click on the <i>target div</i> to paste the image into, and paste <code>cmd+V</code> or <code>ctrl+v</code>. <br />
    <strong class="text-info">Version 1.1</strong> Added camera snapshoot sound on paste - use my pen <a href="https://codepen.io/netsi1964/pen/IHwco">Snapshoot sound - snapshoot()
</a> to get that feature on your pens. Also added option to toggle <code>background-size: contain</code> when clicking on pasted image.
