hi! i discovered this when i was doin my project. i needed to embed some turbine diagrams into my work but all the diagrams i found wouldnt highlight therefore would not copy by the normal "copy and paste" method.
And then neccesity begat discovery.
Below were my steps to "graceland":
step 1: print screen (using the print screen key on keyboard) of the page where ur source document is
step 2: click start>all programs>accessories> paint
step 3: paste(ctrl+V) on paint or you could right click on your mouse and choose paste
step 4:click on the "select" tool on the side toolbars(symbolised by a rectangle made of broken lines)
step 5: then cut the needed size(portion) of the document you need using the "select" tool of equation 4
step 6: copy(ctrl+v) the cut portion( as in step 5)
step 7: paste(ctrl+V) on MSword or any package that suports ur document.
step 8: clap for your self
i am certain for only windows OS. never used any other but it.

Great advice!
I have used this process to resize photos also. When trying to send lots of photos to friends who like myself has dialup (archaic and painfully slow), it helps when you can take a 1.5 M photo and reduce it down to 20-50 kb. Learned my lesson last Christmas when I tried to email out a couple dozen homemade Ecards that had one of own photos in it. Took days! Well actually about six hours. Still ouch! :thumbsup:

I assume you are attempting to copy something from the web.
Simple solution with a lot fewer steps.

Setup, do only once:

1) Use Firefox
2) Install ScreenGrab extension http://www.screengrab.org/

Use:

1) Right click,
ScreenGrab, save, selection
or
ScreenGrab, copy, selection

Nope, sometimes the image is copyrighted.
"If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way." - Bertrand Russell

It might be more a pain to do it this way, but if you don't want to install anything, sometimes you can find the picture saved in your windows temporary internet folder. I've found ways of grabbing embedded video this way too.

I use a good, free and malware-free (of course) screengrabber. It's screengrab from cnet or download.com.

There are others that I've used but they can get a little bit too complicated.

If you want to speed the process up just a tiny bit, try ALT>PRINT SCREEN (press "alt" at the same time as "Print Screen").

Instead of capturing your entire desktop, the image captured will be just that of the active window.... A lot less cropping involved, and for large images, quite the time saver...

Enjoy.

Well if the firefox save as does not work, i go to IE, past the URL and take the picture from the cache. Of course i clean the temp internet files before doing that in order to have an easier view of files.
In general, IE gives u all the files that are on the page.

Hope it helps..

Great advice. I've been doing that for years. Especially when I wanted to copy a photo that I had added to a site and no longer had it on my computer.

Firefox, whether in Windows or Linux, has an available extension called "Save Page As Image," which, when installed, places that command in the right-click context menu, allows for cropping and re-sizing on the fly, and will save in any of several different graphical formats (png, jpg, gif, tif, etc). I'd be helpless without it. :thumbsup:

Cheers;
