If you have hot corners active, you can drag and drop without going to the keyboard at all

--Select your item or text to drag
--Hold and drag
--Drag to the hot corner
--Drag over the target window
--Pause (wait for the gree "+"
--Release

10.3: Drag and drop text clippings with Exposé
Authored by: cagg on Nov 02, '03 01:15:25PM

Yes, I found this a very handy tip. You can use any Expose effect, including (which I just made use of) showing the desktop, clicking an icon, then re-hiding and dragging to appropriate app.

It also works if you have a wheel mouse and have the wheel button configured to do one of the effects (though it may be a bit awkward to try and click the middle wheel button while still holding the left button)
