I have a Samsung Galaxy Avant with Android 4.4.2, and up until a couple of days ago, I've been able to copy image addresses with Google Chrome, but now I don't see the option anymore.

I've tried it with several different websites that I have copied from before. I am thinking it's part of an update although I didn't ever see an update notification. It's really annoying because I used that feature a lot.

Is there any way to fix this?

    It's removed along with some other options due to this issue: crbug.com/483685. I filed this issue regarding the "open image in new tab" option but it was closed as "WontFix".

For those looking here in 2023 and onward, this option has been moved and is difficult to find, but is still present. When viewing a picture in Google Chrome, first long-press to get the menu shown in the original screenshot and choose Share image.

When you get the Sharing dialog, there should be a "broken link" icon in the top right, and tapping it will (1) include the link if you decide to share the photo itself and (2) enable a "Copy link" option in the share menu.

Screenshots to visualize:
