    I cannot succeed in copying and pasting images /pictures. All I succeed to past into notes or other applications is the web link (address) to that image.
    From the camera roll ... Not even that
    What am I doing wrong ?
    Thanks

    What are you trying to paste into? I don't think you can paste to websites like this one, for example. I can't paste into this little box I'm typing this message in.

    The notes application is for text only. If you want to save the picture, hold down on it for a bit and when the context menu comes up select save to Camera Roll. Then you can view the picture from the Photos app.

    Pages by Apple would be a good choice. Evernote seems to be popular as well.

    I am trying evernote, but the problem is still the same ! If I copy a picture on the web, when I paste it, what get pasted is only the internet address of the picture , not the pciture. And I did as you said.

    I like to use Pages also to copy and paste from the web. Another good app I use is Noteability. It uses shapes, arrows, uploads pics, can send to other apps, etc.

    See below:

    Sorry, it's different. If the picture is actually a link to anothee website I can save it in the camera roll and then use it in evernote.
    Id the picture does not lead anywhere, then I can copy and paste it immeditely without intermediary steps.
    Thanks !

    You could do a screen save of the web page then crop it down to just the picture you want to use. Save the picture in your camera roll and use it as before.
