Hi themepenguin. I came to this site with the very same problem, but didn't see any answer here. So I went to the documentation online that I found the other day and worked my way down to the 'image' section. It seems that we can't copy and paste directly into a Writer document, at least not with a photograph which is what I've been trying to do. First we have to copy and paste into some bitmap editor. The documentation mentions GIMP but also says LibreOffice Draw might work fine. So I opened my Draw program, copied and pasted there, then from there into my document. It also said if there is any adjustment needed to the image, it should be done in that intermediate program, before pasting into Writer. If it's not a photo or bitmap image that you want to copy, there are other directions. They are on page 225, and I'll paste a link here if I can. I hope this helps.
