Invalid image or thumbnail was removed


I’m trying to copy designs from one file to another and none of the images appear in the new file. I get an error message that says “invalid image or thumbnail was removed”.

Can someone please help me out with a solution – Figma is so incredibly buggy with images!



Are you trying to copy and paste within the same account or across different ones? Pasting in images between different Figma accounts won’t work, but should work within the same Figma account. I would also try downloading the .fig file and uploading to the new project you’re trying to duplicate it into to get the images to appear.


I am getting message for png/svg images for some logos that i download no matter how I save or export I get same messages. I am using single account.
