Part 2. Getting It All Together > Opening a Picture From the Clipboard

Opening a Picture From the Clipboard

The Windows Clipboard is a reserved area of your computer's memory designed specifically for exchanging data such as photos, drawings, or text among applications. For example, you can open a document in Microsoft Word, select one of the pictures in it, and copy the image into Photoshop Elements.

In another Windows application, such as Microsoft Word, click the image you want.

From the application's menu bar, choose Edit, Copy or press Ctrl+C.

Start Photoshop Elements (or click its button on the Windows taskbar if it's already open).

From the Photoshop Elements menu bar, choose File, New Image from Clipboard. A copy of the picture opens in the active image window for editing.
