Can I ... (drag and drop pic) ... then it auto-populates on a waiting live web page ... (any advice)?

I am looking for a solution where I could do the following thing(s):

I want to be able to go from my photo/graphic editing program and
copy/paste the work directly into some application that would upload
the image I just finished working on directly into a waiting web page
on the Internet

Example:  I have a 'picture of a piece of equipment'.  I have edited
that pic to indiciate where the customer should 'put' their part at.
I've done this by drawing a series of 'arrows' on the graphic.  This
clearly shows 'where' the customer should add their 'part' to the piece
of eqiupment.  

I then want to be able to 'drag and drop' my edited picture into some
program that will upload the picture automatically to my web page ...
and put that graphic in a specific pre-determined area of the web page.

Basically, I want to be albe to tell the customer ... go to this web page.
See the blank/empty table (cell) ... now let me edit the picture ...
Ok ... Mr. Customer ... right-click on your web browser and pick refresh ...
You should now see the graphic I just uploaded to that page.

How can I make this happen?

It would be important to know what FTP Client you intended to use when updating your web pages, and what image editor you use.  I have a feeling that you would have to create some kind of Visual Basic script or toolbar toolbar button programmatically.

Some image editors have options to upload images to common servers, eg. Paint Shop Pro has an "Export to StudioAvenue.com" option on the File Menu.  These spaces are generally used by all and sundry for family snaps, and your technical images would end up plastered all over it, as well as annoying your customer with popup windows on these type of image hosting sites.

My first thoughts are that it would probably be a whole lot easier setting up a "meeting" with the client using NetMeeting and then interactively sharing images and using the Whiteboard.  Of course, not all of your clients will be using Netmeeting or even Windows for that matter.

I would say that this type of FTP Client might work for you:
