Solved Why can I no longer copy and paste images?

Specs: Windows 10
For me copying and pasting images seems to be related to the quality of the image. I can copy and paste small grainy images but not high definition images. The problem is consistent with different browsers pasting into different word processing programs. Is this a software issue or a download limit imposed by the service provider?

✔ Best Answer
If you first save the image as a jpg/gif/png file, can you see the image when opened will image viewer app?

Import the file in Word app and see what happens

You might be copying small thumbnails of the images you want
rather than the full-size images. My browser is set to adjust web
pages and the images they contain to fit my screen, plus some
web pages are designed to display their images smaller than
their actual sizes, so sometimes when I save an image and look
at it later, I'm pleasently surprised to find that it is actually much
larger and higher-resolution than I thought. But sometimes I'm
disappointed that all I got was a thumbnail version of the image
displayed on the web page.

Right at the moment I can't think of specific advice, but generally
it seems to matter how I select and copy an image. Try different
ways of doing it.

Yes, it works when I do the two-step method of saving the image to a file then copying and pasting it. Thank you very much.

Still not sure why the smaller (low resolution) images work with the CTRL-C then CTRL-V, but not the larger images. But that is an academic issue now. Thanks.

I know the problem is solved but other ways are right click and Save Picture if the facility is provided, or do a screen capture using the Snipping Tool (which will "always" work).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
