const imageContainer = document.getElementById("image-container");

// Listen for a paste event

  // Get the clipboard data
  const items = e.clipboardData.items;

  // Loop through all items and look for image data
  for (let i = 0; i < items.length; i++) {
    if (items[i].type.indexOf("image") !== -1) {
      // Convert the image to a base64 string

      const reader = new FileReader();
      reader.onload = function (event) {
        const base64 = event.target.result;
