Drag N Drop behavior / takes too long
when I drag 'n drop items between two applications, the whole "transaction" takes very long.
Example: when I select an image in "Application 1" and I want to drag 'n drop it to "Application 2" (which is hidden under other opened windows), I use the dock or the application overview (exposé?). So I have to hover with the item above the Application (window or dock-item) until it gets automatically selected and the window opens itself.
This takes around two seconds which is way too long (imho).
Is there a way to shorten this?
I hope very one is getting what I mean... English isn't my mother-tongue!

Your English is very fine and better than the English of many native speakers.
As to drag&drop, can you give an exact example or maybe even make a screenrecording via QT X?
I for instance use the Dock to open images from one application in another application and it is quite fast (less than a second, though the opening in the second application depends on where the images are stored (external or internal HDD; interface being USB 2.0 or Firewire 800 or USB 3.0 or eSATA).
Can you also specify the specs of your machine (what exact Mac, how much RAM, storage device(s))?

I have a Macbook Air (mid 2012) with an i5 and 8GB of RAM. I use the internal SSD. I made a short video of my "issue". Is there a way to shorten the "transitions" time?
Thank you so much for replying.
