    I've noticed that sometimes I can copy and paste images into a post, other times I cannot.

    Can someone explain this to me please?

    Have you got a specific example of what you are copying and pasting from? Or is a bit random? Which browser and OS? Is it a problem just on your own site or here too?

    Here too --

    Seems like I can copy and paste from a website, but not a photo from my computer

    Yes, that's no problem -- its the copy / paste thing that's a little strange

    Lets see if this works copying an image from FF and pasting it.

    Are you trying to copy an existing XF attached image?

    I read this as copy and paste from a computer desktop, which I didn't know was possible. However dragging and dropping from a desktop is no problem, as mentioned.

    As my previous post was not exactly obvious that it was an image, I tried pasting it again after adding some visual effects to it. I pasted it and then got the following.

    Funny thing is, the image in this post was pasted from the clipboard.

    No --- go to any image on your computer, click copy. Then come to the reply box here and click PASTE. That's what I'm trying to do

    There are browser differences as to what specifically is available in terms of pasting files from the clipboard. There are a couple of different representations of an image and I believe Chrome only supports one (the image data in the clipboard, not the file reference).

    errr, ok @Mike -- can I have that with a little more English please?

    The short answer is browser limitations and how the image is actually stored in your computer's clipboard. There's really not anything that you (or we) can do about it, as far as I know.
