Wiki needs image embedding
I was working on a wiki article for a channel and wanted to embed a picture. The best I could do was paste a URL. I would like to embed an image in sharepoint or just a plain image from my pc so I can talk about it in the wiki section and aid the reader understand better.
This is done! Users can now paste an image directly into Wiki to have it embed properly. We’re rolling out a feature in the next day or two to allow users to then resize that image. We’re completing work to allow users to insert an image natively without using copy / paste, that should be completed by end of year.
If you have any trouble with this feature, just tweet me at @skprufo.

I will be ignoring the Wiki until images can be pasted in. Back to regular notes, word documents, etc. :-/
I tried to copy and paste an image into a wiki page and at first, it seemed to work, but now I only have an image placeholder.
I need to be able to add images and links to internal and external addresses.

It would be a really nice feature to be able to paste images in the wikipages and get them stored in the team's document library. Or the other way around: Embed an image from the library that i there allready.
Please add this feature, it is crucial for any wiki to have the ability to embed pictures.
Image embedding was one of the first things I was looking for and is a must for the Wiki!

Yes, the ability to add images to a wiki page within any channel in Microsoft teams is a definite need here. Please consider.

I just set up a test Wiki in the Windows Teams app.
If I try to paste an image, a rectangular "placeholder" outline appears, but not the image contents. Once clicked away from, the image box just dissapears!
This is needed and not a thing you would expect from a 2017 product.
If this can be done via cut/paste, I was unable to do so. That means the ability is either indirect or obscurely inhibited. (It was a team of my own creation, on a page of my own creation, in a section I'd just created...so if there's a rights and permissions issue here, it's really convoluted.)
The wiki must be obviously and seamlessly multi-media capable or else it's just a BBS.

I can do this using cut/paste - would be nice to be able to pick a file from the local machine etc.
Image embedding is a must for the Wiki!
