Hi,

 

I use really often copy & paste of pictures from websites but it is possible to paste them to the conversation only in some cases. Does exist some cases where it works and does not work? I tried to find some logical explanation but I did not find it. For example I tried to copy our logo from main bar on SharePoint (screen1) and it is possible to paste it to conversation (screen2). Then I tried to copy website logo (screen3) and it is not possible to paste it to conversation (screen4). But when I paste it to "mspaint" application (screen5) or Skype chat it is pasted (screen6). Why it does not work in Teams application?

 

Thank you,

 

Mirek

Known issue with a uservoice. I run into this often. I wear out the snip tool and snag it for this since you can always copy and paste using snipping tool.

Here is the uservoice to vote for. https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17636536-fix-pasting-of-images

Hi Miroslav,

 

Yes its a known issues. and Microsoft is working on it. I had this issues and I am somehow managing  with this work around below. 

 

  Install Image app in your Teams channel and search for images and inserting is easy :) ... internally this apps uses Bing Search.

Hi Thuyavan, thank you for your tip and I will use it. Otherwise for our end users is most common scenario that they need copy a lot concrete pictures directly from our specific websites. Searching for new pictures is not so often case but I will try it. Thank you :)

@Thuyavan Ganesan where do we find the "image" app?

Click ... down the bottom right where you post a new message! Click “more apps” and search for images

I just found another flaw related this. I use Snagit often to copy and paste images into Teams, but if there is transparency in the image you're trying to paste, it won't paste (even though it easily pastes elsewhere, for example into a Microsoft Word file).

 

This wouldn't paste in Teams at all:

This did paste:
