No, not at the moment (at least in my copy!)
This is a very handy feature, and I'd also like to see it extended to images dragged from a page (it's even harder to remember where they came from!)
One thing to consider; this feature wrote the URL to the comments field, as there was no better alternative. Now that we have extended attributes via Spotlight (see the More Info
section of the Get Info
window) perhaps this detail be written to the 'Where From' attribute?
Of course, at the moment Apple doesn't allow you to interact with that data (e.g. Ctrl-click to visit the root URL) so it may not be perfect... just a thought.
