drag and drop images in wiki pages and blogs
other CMS systems already allow this functionality. Instead of having to save an image somewhere and then upload it to SharePoint, let me just drag / drop images on the wiki and blog pages. Would be ideal for screenshots
You can now drag and drop, or paste images into modern pages. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?featureid=65599

Much as I love SP - 15 years a SP dev/admin - I'm getting disillusioned as to where MS are taking it. I really don't like the Modern look, much of the old functionality is missing, and thinks like drag-and-drop images into text was normal years ago. Stop focusing on shiny shiny and start fixing the issues people want and please PLEASE keep it away away from that awful mess of garbage that is Teams!

Also having this issue with rich text fields. Copy paste works in as far as it base64 encodes the image but during save the image field (containing the base64 encoding is lost). Having to upload images manually is cumbersome to say the least.
2020 is here. When will this feature be available? I just want the comfort of the MS Teams Multi-Line Editor when writing posts on modern SharePoint-Pages. Including photos by inserting them with ctrl-v. Please....

Sharepoint 2019 is nice for documentation but adding images to Modern pages is painful. Each of the images needs it's own widget. Drag and drop images straight into a text box so we don't have to create 100 text and image widgets would be great.
Also one central thing would be the ability to align and resize images.
This is essential for proper page design.
We are currently considering a migration from Confluence to SharePoint and using SharePoint Wiki libraries. I'm afraid this could be a deal breaker since users really enjoy being able to quickly add screenshots when they are creating process documentation within Confluence. Adding this functionality in SharePoint would really help make that decision much easier.

How about simply being able to cut/paste formatted content including images, tables etc from anywhere into a SP page, Wiki or otherwise. e.g. copying a block of complex content from Word, OneNote, Confluence, HTML web page etc. I hesitate to mention PDF because the experience copying that into anything is usually a horror story.

Any update on this? This is really an important feature. Without this the Wiki feels like a tool from the 90's
For the moment: open a text web part and copy the image into the text web part..

Any updates on this? We'd like to be able to drag and drop images onto modern pages.
Also, the ability to crop images would be extremely helpful.
Also, to me "IN THE PLANS" would be indicative of a decision to actually make the change.
- Why is it followed with "...will consider for future updates?
Our company wants that feature as well. Confluence has it ootb and the people like it.

My users request this often. Other blog/CMS have this modern feature. Please add this feature.
Wow, SharePoint Experience Team only took exactly 1 year and 3 month to consider to implement this feature in some future. I do hope, consideration took the longest portion of this activity.
I'm also interested in this feature for SharePoint Online.
Where would we be able to drag and drop the image from? We also want to get screenshots into wiki pages and multi line text fields in lists. We were thinking that the ability to be able to paste images directly, the same as Word and OneNote Online, would be ideal.
