Importing Screenshots Automatically

Hello Figma Community,

My first time posting here, hope you are well.

Is the way/plugin to import screenshots directly into Figma? That is for screenshots taken both within and outside the tool.

For example, in this video Figma for Education: Learning Auto layout - YouTube, Miggi takes a screenshot at 22:45 and it automatically appears inside Figma?

Thanks in advance!


He’s simply pasting it onto the canvas. When you take a screenshot, it’s saved in your clipboard, so you can CtrlV or V.

Thanks @Avokadomos, I get it now. My screenshot tool had the option set to ‘save to desktop’ so I was doing an extra step or two. Updated and works like a charm now!
