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.
Its not just snag it its any picture irrespective of whether it has a transparent background or not. I cant past anything picture / image wise int teams
All images from Teams cannot be copied. I tried Snagit, Paint, and others. It is weird that copy and paste has disappeared in 2020.
This is a major fail. I have to print screen any images that I need to put in documents or emails outside of teams. I cant even download an image that is pasted into a chat. Please fix this!
Hi all. My last post here was in August. Have created a ticket for this issue back in April and have shared many/many logs. They claim to have deployed a fix, but yeah... it didn't fix it, so they're asking again for logs. Let's face it guys, they're not fixing this. We need to escalate this. Create a ticket with MSFT support and immediately escalate it with your account manager. I'm working on a blog post to highlight this issue and let everyone know that Microsoft doesn't care about all bugs. This clearly isn't impacting everyone and someone high up within MSFT doesn't want to allocate resources to fix this.

This issue is not fixed. I face this issue almost every day. I have come across this problem when copying from Snagit 2020 and then trying to past it in a Teams chat. Restarting the teams app solves the problem or my other workaround is to paste the image in OneNote and then copy from OneNote and then to Teams.
Using SnagIt and adding effects or too many markups and it won't paste into Teams chat. It will paste into any other Microsoft desktop app though. The workaround is to use snipping tool of the snagit image.
My issue is with SnagIt copy-paste too
Still a problem more than a year after Microsoft engineer claims it's mostly fixed. And such a common use case... the fact that this has still not been addressed boggles the mind.
I want to second Scott Mason's comment. Using SnagIt, if there is transparency it will not paste. If you fill the transparency, it pastes just fine.
Scott Mason commented
We've noticed that if the pasting image has any kind of transparency on it, the image will not paste.
We regularly take screenshots with SnagIt and then mark them up by drawing arrows or encircling items, etc. If there is any transparency in the resulting image, it cannot be pasted into a Teams message.
Removing any transparency allows the image to be pasted correctly. Hope that helps you narrow down the problem.

We also still experience this issue - especially when trying to copy an image from Teams and paste it in OneNote - the image is not pasted. Pasting in Word and PPT is working fine.

I would say it is still here. Some of user in our company, including me, have this problem.
"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."
It's Oct. 1 2020, and we still face significant copy-paste issues into and out of Teams. Even copying images from a Word doc or Onenote notebook to Teams doesn't work.
Slack paste works perfect.
I don't see how "the most common cases are resolved". I am trying to copy an image from one post to another and it doesn't work. How much more common can it get?
Clearly a difficult one to fix for some reason.
I'm on macOS Catalina, and using Teams Version 1.3.00.24758 (stand-alone application).
I can see now that this _sort of_ works for me. The images it would appear _are_ uploading, because when I leave the chat and return to it, the images have magically fixed themselves.
After a photo has been pasted into Teams, It does not populate in the file section, Is there a fix for this?
Pasting from the Microsoft Snip & Sketch tool often results in a broken/unclickable image.
For snagit users see this article from the developer. https://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-us/articles/360046513832-Pasting-Image-in-Microsoft-Teams-From-Snagit-Not-Working I use greenshot with 0 issues.
More than 3.5 years later and still not fixed the clipboard issue. Kindda frustrating...
This is really disappointing... I use Snagit constantly at work and I am unable to paste images into Teams. It works intermittently, apparently it will work if you don't have shadows or transparency on your images but I want to take advantage of those Snagit features. I wish my current organization used HipChat or Slack (like my previous employer) where this isn't an issue.
