How can I add an image to a new conversation in Teams? I can see how to add an emoji, upload a file, change font add bullets but can't see anywhere to include an image in the conversation.

Thanks but that is a major drawback. Most of what we deal with is visual and if you can't see an example (like say a colour swatch) then it's not much use to us at least. Even this post can add a photo.
We'll have to stick to email then. Very odd

Re: Just copy paste of the image works for me.

Yes I tried it from snipping tool and it pasted OK bu there is no way to browse to an image. That's OK I can always take a cap to paste in.

We are also having problems attaching photos to conversations. If someone takes a photo of a project it is attached as a high res photo. This means it takes ages to upload and often 'fails to send', also other members on the team have difficulty viewing them. Any ideas how to upload low res photos? We also would like to upload photos from a different source than just our sharepoint too.

Hi - previously I was able to paste an image into a conversation using clipping tool (copy > paste), however as of this morning, I am not. Any ideas? Update: it appears to allow me to paste an image when using Chrome, but when I post the convo, the image doesn't remain.

I just tried using the Microsoft Teams app on my iPhone and inserted a picture from my camera roll. It let me choose what size to upload and worked perfectly. I imagine there is an android version too.

The copy/paste thing is a known bug that is being worked on. Has to do with how things are actually copying to the clipboard: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17689588-copy-paste-pictures
For the original ask in this thread, can you not just click the paperclip icon and attach whatever picture you want?

Hey there, if you're trying to engage your team in a picture, especially a high-res picture, Ponga works well regardless of copy/paste or file size upload issues. Just add your picture to Ponga and paste the link into Teams, like this http://www.ponga.com/6a38914aa8db4460
If embedding code is working right, you can the picture itself like this:
Would love to hear from those of you in the architecture & design space, we're looking at integrations to solve exactly this problem. Reach out ~b

I found in one of the linked threads, that copying the image to Word first and then copying to Teams works. That makes no sense, it should be able to work regardless. We have been using HipChat and moving to Teams, it is so simple to just copy an image from anywhere and paste.

Hey Stephen - FYI, I can screenshots using win + s all day long and those paste fine.

Has anyone else noticed that uploading photos from Android camera are rendered as links in Teams vs. in-line images?

Yes, and with the latest version of Android MS Teams app, I choose the Image Icon (Left Bottom Most Icon) on the teams app tool bar. It seems to work better, and shows the image in as if I pasted vs using the Link (paperclip) icon which always leads to the need to download (as it is treated as a file Link).

You can also automate the upload of pictures using automation tools like IFTTT or Zapier. Just create an album in either Apple Photos (iOS) or Google Photos (Andriod), and hook up the automation to send every new photo to new (at) Ponga (dot) com.
Once in Ponga you can add comments that provide context, then share the links into Teams as embeds. That approach is most useful for site visits and other kinds of reports. An article about it here: https://tips.ponga.com/how-to-automatically-create-ponga-pictures-from-apple-ios-photos-f4b23d298222

Hi Michael, I did not see this reply until today when other comments were added. Win+s on Windows 10 is Search. Although Win-Shift-s essentially opens a select portion of the screen. That does work.
Where is does not work is if there is an image in a browser and you right-click and select Copy image, then paste that into a Chat, it will not work. The line will go blank. If you paste (Ctrl-V) it into Paint (or another editing program like Irfanview which I use) and then copy (Ctrl-C) again, it works fine. Not sure why the paste will not work of the image in the clipboard from the browser. I have tried Chrome, Firefox, and Edge with the same results. It takes much longer to select a portion of the screen rather than a right-click and copy (or copy image).

I agree that this is major drawback. The ability to quickly view a photo directly in the chat feed is a basic functionality of almost every other chat service and keeps us from using this platform. Please add this functionality.

I paste images into Teams all the time, maybe this was an old thread.
I did want to add though there is a plug in app from microsoft called "images". Once you install it, you activate it in a chat or command line with @images .
06-11-2019 04:32 AM
@Rob O'Keefe, Yes, I do also. The only problem is the source of the image. Some will not paste unless you first paste them into an editor and then Copy & Paste again. There is some formatting issues that do not allow them to always work.
I will admit that I have not directly tried for a while, so it could have been corrected. I will try it again to see.

@Amit Kumar copy/paste doesn't work for me, at least not with external contacts in chat.
Microsoft has forced my company off Skype for Business–which worked just great–and onto Teams, which lacks even rudimentary functions like renaming contacts and pasting images. This forced migration onto an inferior product is probably going to force me to switch away from Teams and find another presence/chat/screen share/conferencing solution. :(
