The jQuery Paste.js plugin provides 3 events to handle copy & paste events in a specific field that supports both text and image pasting.

How to use it:

1. Insert the JavaScript file jQuery Paste.js after jQuery JavaScript library.

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.slim.min.js" 
        integrity="sha384-q8i/X+965DzO0rT7abK41JStQIAqVgRVzpbzo5smXKp4YfRvH+8abtTE1Pi6jizo" 
        crossorigin="anonymous">
</script>
<script src="paste.js"></script>

2. Call the function pastableTextarea on the element where you want to keep track of the paster event.

<textarea >Paste Text Or Image Here And Checkout The Console Log (F12).</textarea>
$('textarea').pastableTextarea()

3. Trigger an event when you paste some text into the textarea.

$('textarea').pastableTextarea()
.on('pasteText', function(event, text) {
    console.info(text);
})

4. Trigger an event when you paste an image into the textarea.

$('textarea').pastableTextarea()
.on('pasteImage', function(event, image) {
    console.info(image.blob);
    console.info(image.height);
    console.info(image.width);
    
    $('img').attr('src', image.dataURL);
})

5. Trigger an event when fail to paste.

$('textarea').pastableTextarea()
.on('pasteError', function(event, err) {
    console.info(err.message);
})
