Pasting an image into the chat results in a blank image. Clicking to expand the image shows a broken link.
The image usually shows up in the senders chat, but recipients can't see it. There seems to be no notification that the image is broken on the other end - and no mechanism to retry sending the image.
Also here. Problem is already there since mid March. Very annoying !
Pretty much 1/2 of people are experiencing these bugs across the internet, and Microsoft will not even reply. People think, must be my computer. I am getting broken pastes, and broken image icons when I try to open my or a members photo. I always have to restart Teams to enlarge photo posts. Ridiculous. There is no fix yet. Been this way since March 2020 and has not changed. I even have extremely fast internet.
Me too. The loading/display of images in the "Chat" area of MS Teams is very buggy/unreliable. These images frequently fail to load and instead show a broken image symbol. It's a long-standing MAJOR and embarrassing bug in MS Teams. I'm really surprised to see that after such a very long time, MS Teams is still very unreliable in the area of displaying images in Chat. (I'm using the desktop app version of MS Teams in Windows 10).

This occurs frequently for me. Once a broken link happens every image is 'broken'. It requires a restart of Teams to enable the images to be shown correctly again.
Facing this issue after the latest update
Having a similar issue with a channel. These images were uploaded from a mobile device. Neither the sender or recipients can view these, however at one point they could.

I found that if you don't give it enough time and paste a new picture (e.g. from snipping tool) it fails, if you give it a few seconds it helps. I think teams is uploading int he background but requires the image to not be replaced in the "source" app.

Experiencing the a similar issue. In our case, it varies between the recipient not being able to see pasted or attached images and the sender.
Additionally, when an image is pasted and the sender cannot see the image. If a new chat/team is selected and you navigate back to the chat/team with the broken image it appears.
