    Chrome: 50.0.2661.89

    I used to be able to long press images in the chrome browser, then select 'copy image' to copy an image to the clipboard and paste it in other locations.

    a few months ago the 'copy image' option disappeared.

    i cant remember if this coincided with an adroid and or chrome update.

    why did they remove copy image?
    can i turn it back on?

    i dont want to use another browser, as chrome is excellent for everything else. it sucks to have to either save the image, or get the direct URL just to be able to share an image.

    specifically i post on a forum site where i have to switch out of mobile view in order to attach an image using the direct URL. it was great in the past where i could just copy the image and paste it into a post, while remaining in mobile view on the forum site.

    please help!

    Welcome to Android Central! How do you want to share the image? When I long-press an image in Chrome, I get a Share option as well as a Save option. There's no option to use the Clipboard to share, but there are many other options there. Does that work for you?
