I would like to know how to add markers to an OpenStreet map manually, that is to say how to add markers by dagging them directly into the map without writing a script (for example like the markers of Google map).

It is not possible to do this without writing a script. However, there are some people who have written such scripts or web sites and maybe you can use one of them.

For example, ESRI's MyMap Web Site can be used to draw something onto a map, and you can select an OpenStreetMap background among others.

If a static map is ok for you (i.e. one where you cannot zoom and pan), then check out the Static Map Wizard which lets you easily drop some markers onto a map.

First, it's better to "add new comment" instead adding new answers when you want to answer to another answer. Order of answers is not permanent. Then, if your question is solved, you can mark the answer as « accepted ». Thanks and welcome.
