Copy Paste from webpage to word document fails to copy images correctly

By creative.versatile ·
Tags: Off Topic
While copying text and pictures from a webpage article, only the text and the first picture or image or graph is being pasted in all the subsequent image place-holders (not the actual image that appeared in each place-holder on the webpage).
I am using Windows XP and Word 2007.
If I try to copy and paste the entire text and images directly to Wordpad, then only the text appears (not any image at all).
However, I can copy each image SEPARATELY from the web to Wordpad, and then copy to Word doc. Or save each image into Pictures folder, and then insert it into Word doc.
I could not find any solution on the web, please.
Kindly diagnose the reasons for the same, and suggest an effective remedy:

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:;content

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.
