I'm on Windows 10 and I can't drag images from Google Images to Photoshop.
Can I fix this or is this not available?

Might be copywrite issues... On my website, I have it set to disable "right click" to prevent people just copying. Are you talking about Stock Images? Are they supposed to be downloadable?

If they are, try downloading or "save as" and the bring them into PS ...

No, it are only chrome pictures, on my other device I can just drag them in, I know that I can download them but dragging is much faster.

Please let me know whether that worked.  The experiment was intended to flush out whether you might be encountering  a copy-blocking mechanism.... Dave

No, I cannot copy or drag your images because you blocked it but Google Imagaes didn't blocked it because I can drag them on my Mac

Maybe it is a Windows 10 thing...? Did you mean that you were able to drag images using the Mac from my website? Just curious (you are free to copy my photos, by the way)
