### Pasting an Image into Org Mode on Windows

The following is the answer I posted on StackOverflow.

My solution is for the Windows platform. Many thanks to Assem for giving his solution on which I based mine.

I wrote a C# console app CbImage2File that writes the image on the clipboard (if there is one) to a path given as the command line argument. You will need a reference to System.Windows.Forms assembly.

I use Greenshot to take the screenshot, which (via its configuration) automatically copies the screenshot to the clipboard.

I then use a shortcut C-S-v to paste the image in the org mode buffer using the function org-insert-image-from-clipboard:

This function will work out a file path, then invoke the C# app to create png file, then it will add the image tag and then call org-display-inline-images to show the image. If there is no image on the clipboard, it will paste in the response from the C# app.

### Zip a Code Directory using 7zip command line

This solution using the command line application of 7z.

If you wish the contents of myproject to be the contents of the zip, then you use .\myproject\* instead of .\myproject\.
