Copying and pasting pictures on an Android tablet is a useful skill that can come in handy when you want to share images with friends or save them for later use. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of copying and pasting pictures on your Android tablet.

Step 1: Open the Picture

First, locate the picture you want to copy. You can find it in your photo gallery, on a website, or in a messaging app. Once you find the picture, tap on it to open it in full-screen view.

Step 2: Select the Picture

To copy the picture, you need to select it. Tap and hold your finger on the picture until a menu appears.

From the menu options, select “Copy” or “Copy image.” This will store the image in your device’s clipboard.

Step 3: Open the Destination

Now, navigate to the location where you want to paste the picture. This could be in a messaging app, email composer, document editor, or any other app that supports image insertion.

Step 4: Paste the Picture

To paste the copied picture, tap and hold your finger on an empty space where you want to insert it. A menu will appear with various options; select “Paste” from the menu. The copied picture will be inserted at that location.


  • If your device has a physical keyboard attached or if you are using an external keyboard with your tablet, you can use Ctrl+V instead of tapping and holding for pasting.
  • The availability of options may vary depending on your Android version and apps installed on your tablet.

Step 5: Save the Picture (Optional)

If you want to save the picture to your tablet’s local storage, tap and hold on the inserted picture until a menu appears. From the menu options, select “Save” or “Save image” to save it to your device.


  • The “Save” option may not be available in all apps. In some apps, you might need to tap on the picture and look for a download icon or an option like “Save to device.”

And that’s it! You have successfully copied and pasted a picture on your Android tablet. Now you can easily share images with your friends, insert them into documents, or save them for future use.

Remember, this process may vary slightly depending on your device and Android version. However, the basic steps remain the same across most Android tablets.

So go ahead and start copying and pasting pictures on your Android tablet with ease!
