Hi Community Members,
Have been unable to find an obvious solution to seemingly trivial scenario - storing photos from within a specific Teams Conversation to a dedicated folder on either Sharepoint or OneDrive for Business.
Other types of files I can see automatically listed under the 'files' tab, but the photos are not included there?
Any suggestions on configuration, or workarounds appreciated.

I can't think of a way to automate it, but you can open each image and then download to a folder that syncs from your machine to SharePoint.
What's the scenario you are trying to achieve? In Teams photos are treated in the same way as chat and not held in SharePoint. Could you get the photos loaded into SharePoint first then shared in the channel?

I'm not sure I understand the problem.
In my Teams channels, I am seeing the Files tab, and in it I see all of the image files that users may have added to a discussion in the channel. *.jpg, *.png and *.jpeg files are all listed in the Files tab and are shown in SharePoint.

Hi, Thank You Christopher,
The issue is that the conversation is about specific tasks for team members and when the tasks are completed the individual takes a photo of the completed work and pastes into the conversation.
I guess my expectation was that photos pasted into the conversation would be grouped together and/or stored similarly to other file types. I assumed wrong.
I have to instruct them not to use the 'paste' function but to add the photos via the 'attach' button. TY

Is there someone at microsoft reading this that can fix this issue please? It's quite frustrating to have a technical diagram "stuck" in some unreadable and unsaveable format in teams. Typically what people expect to happen is to be able to right click -> save as. This is the intuitive behaviour that people expect to occur on teams. Unfortunately there is none of that, you have to screen capture it and save it that way.

I'm now on the hunt for a piece of software that runs under windows that i can save the image to a file in. I tried microsoft photos but there's no obvious way to paste the image in there. I can also no paste into microsoft paint.
This leaves me no choice but to download and install gimp, take a screenshot of the window, crop it and save the file that way.
Microsoft teams isn't fit for purpose. The point of software is to make things easier. You couldn't possibly have made this any harder.

I have noticed that it is possible to just drag and drop photos from the chat into a folder in the Windows Explorer...

@Mathias Hammarsten When you Drag & Drop, the image is saved at a much lower resolution of 800x600
