Fix pasting of images
Pasting images is somewhat supported - see https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public-preview/suggestions/16925587-ability-to-paste-images) but is not correctly implemented (at least on Windows).
Using Google Chrome, if I right click on any image on a webpage and select "Copy Image", I can not paste it into Teams. I can paste this on competitors products, such as HipChat and of course into MS Paint.
There are different issues pasting from other browsers. Edge and IE both paste a blank image. Firefox has similar behavior to Chrome (nothing is pasted at all).
This is a very common use case - pasting an image from a web page. Please make it work!
You should experience significant improvements in copy & paste of images within Teams, as well as to & from Teams. We are aware of a few remaining issues, but the most common cases are resolved.
Thanks again for your patience on this one.

Doesn't work pasting into in-channel meeting invites within teams; cannot attach an image or copy/paste. (MacOS)
Image copied in a remote desktop pastes OK in other apps (such as Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, etc.) on the local computer but won't paste in teams.

As on 07 Mar 21 I am unable to paste images to MS Teams
April of 2021 and this still isn't fixed.

You have not fixed the issue of being unable to paste images with transparency. Is it really hard for Microsoft?
Good lord almighty! How is this still an issue after MORE THAN THREE YEARS?!
Honestly, how hard can it be? It's not like this is a common issue that affects other applications!
pleas fix the issue with snagit I copy and paste from Snagit to Whatapp, cisco teams and the only one not working with snagit is microsoft teams :|
@Ryan Hoffman Our issue with this was a transparency option in SnagIt. Disabling that fixed our paste issues.
yep still an issue for me as well. This is incredibly frustrating.
This problem most certainly is NOT resolved. Cannot copy from Teams to Word, Visio, latest versions of products.

Still having issues using SnagIt. Rebooted and signed in/out of Teams... these inconsistencies (works one day, then not the next) are highly impactful to productivity and user adoption.

Some time after my Teams post, I also lost pictures copied/pasted via the clipboard (using Greenshot). The most cumbersome about this is that one thinks it worked and therefore makes no backup of the image and if used often don't even know which images were used, in which case it would probably be better if it did not work at all.
started experiencing this issue 2 days ago. I'm used to pasting Snagit screen captures directly into Teams and it worked perfectly, but all of a sudden I can't do it. i'd appreciate your support, tnx

1.3.00.34662 (64-bit). It was last updated on 14/01/2021.
Still cannot copy a picture from Teams
The problem remains.
If you trying to copy an image from OneNote to Teams.

Even if it wasn't seamless, a "paste as picture" right click or menu based option would be helpful. Like Office apps or Outlook.
My current workaround is to paste as picture in an office application and then copy it from there and I can paste it into Teams.
Still not possible with MICROS~1 Teams on Mac 1.3.00.33671
I still get a broken Image Link, have to restart Teams.
Why the f... do i have to aggree to marketing mails when I want to fill in a complain??? Are you crazy?
Often pasting images into the MS Teams Linux client crashes the whole client. Completely unacceptable and needs fixing ASAP

Same issue. It's worked before but just started having issues pasting from snag it to a teams post. I can paste in other programs such as word, powerpoint, etc. The work around is to go in snag it and save it as a file as an image and then go in the teams post and attach the image file. Pain in the butt.
I don't understand how this still hasn't been resolved. This is literally one of the most basic functions you expect from a program. It's nearly 2021 and I still can't copy an image from the web and paste it into teams. This is madness.
