Chapter 3. Being Selective > Edit Operations

Edit Operations

The Edit operations, which are all available both from the Edit menu and through keyboard shortcuts, include Cut, Copy, several Paste operations, and Clear. The basic Edit operations—Cut, Copy, and Paste as New Image—are also available as the standard Windows icons on the standard toolbar.

Cut and Copy

Basically, two ways exist to copy pixels to the Windows Clipboard, thereby making those pixels available for insertion elsewhere. Pixels can be either cut from an image, which both deletes the pixels from the original image and places them on the Clipboard, or copied from the image to the Clipboard, leaving the pixels in the original image as they were.
