In the browser, right click on the image and select "Copy Image." Then in LibreOffice, paste the image using "Edit --> Paste" or Control+V.

are you trying to copy from a browser? – philshem Nov 28 '12 at 23:29
Ya I do. Look in windows and other Linux Distros, When u try to drag and drop any image it immediately copied on destination, So im doing the same in unity but it doesnot work. U try the same and u will know – OmiPenguin Nov 29 '12 at 7:20
If you can't copy in your browser (what browser?), then right click and save the image to your desktop. Then, with the mouse drag the image into your LO file. – philshem Nov 29 '12 at 14:13
