This only happens with some images, large images most of time not.

Don't mind of cource, only good. But didn't know xenforo did this.

Then that's doing exactly what it is supposed to do.

You're copying the image, e.g. the actual image data onto the clipboard and when we detect that being pasted, we take that image data and upload the attachment:

upload_2017-7-1_20-54-45.png

In Chrome, for example, you would click "Copy Image Address" instead, which would copy the URL.

Hi Chris,

When I right-click and select "Copy Image" the pasted image will do two different things:

1) If I hover my cursor over one of these thumbs and copy the image, when pasted it becomes an attachment:

upload_2017-7-2_10-42-37.png

2) If I isolate the image an use the "Copy Image", then paste it it becomes a hot linked image using the [ IMG ] tags.

So the question is why does the same "Copy Image" command in my browser behave two different ways?
