An invalid image or thumbnail was removed

thanks!!! it was very useful!! :smile:

2 posts were split to a new topic: Issue with Photo Booth Widget: “Invalid image was removed”

I have two separate accounts and I am trying to copy files from one account to another. When I try to do this images don’t appear. I get “invalid image or thumbnail was removed”. I’ve tried to do some of the workarounds above and I have to say that are frustrating as hell when you have to manually especially when there are A LOT of screens.

Is there any other fix or solutions? I am using the desktop app and any help would be appreciated. This has slowed down the work tremendously. Getting beyond annoyed.

The problem is known since 2022 and I still had yesterday this issue. I was working 5 hours on a plan with topographic maps as jepg-files. All layers were made and all graphics. Everything worked fine without an error message. I was lucky to export an PDF file to document the problem, before I knew it. In the morning today, I was opening it in my account an all files were deleted. I did not get an error message!!!

If such a problem is well known since 2022 and we are now in 2024 - why is Figma not working on it?

At least give us an error message in time, when we upload an image into our Figma surface!

Same thing is happening for me in both web and desktop app, for months now. I don’t lose images once they’ve been added to a document, just copying/pasting into a different file and getting the ‘invalid image’ message.

Only workaround that works for me is to Copy as png (⌘⇧C) from the original file, but it’s much slower doing it that way. Can’t believe this has been happening for so long, so inefficient!
