Copy and Pasting option is not something reserved for just Personal Computers but can also be used on Smartphones, iPhones, and tablets. Copying text or links is quite easy on Android devices while copying/pasting images is not as straightforward comparatively. Also, the feature may not be supported by many apps and can vary by the Android version as well.
In this guide, we will show you how you can copy and Paste Images on Android.
Copying and Pasting Images on Android
The copying and pasting of images work best in the Google Chrome browser on Android. Here’s how you can do it:
First, open Google Chrome on your Android device, and find the image on the webpage that you want to copy.
Tap and hold the image to bring up the pop-up menu.
From the pop-up menu, select “Copy Image”. You will also see the “Download Image” option which is a more reliable way to share the image. The downloaded image will be saved in the gallery and can be shared on any app that you like.
To paste the copied image, go to the place where you want to share it. Mostly, the image is shared in messaging apps. Tap and hold in a text box to bring up the context menu.
Select “Paste” from the menu.
The copied image will be pasted to the specified location. However, this feature is not widely supported so we suggest you download the image rather than copying/pasting it.
