Default PDF Files?

Is it possible to lift an image or part of a pdf file? I drag the cursor around it and right click. It says copy to "Clipboard" which I have tried. But where the hell is the Clipboard? Have never been able to find it!
Is it possible to print a single page?
Thanx for any help,
RM.

You should be able to open ms photo editor and right click and paste. Then you can save as a jpg or bmp. Or when opening photo editor, simply click file- open new from clipboard and that may also work. In Mac OS, open preview and click file- open new from clipboard, then save. We went from windows XP to windows 7 and lost the photo editor, but I was able to find it on line and reinstall it. Hope this helps.

Thanks.
I have 'Adobe Photo Deluxe'. Not much luck downloading.
I was able to capture the images I wanted and print them off.
Why can't computers be easy - so many friggin variations!

Arrow Re: PDF Files?

I just read this G........
One thing you should know is if you can SEE it you can save it.......
Buried in ACCESSORIES in the program menus is PAINT.
I keep a shortcut to PAINT handy in my most often used programs.
Open the PDF, enlarge it to point where whatever image you want to save is at a suitable size.
Press the WINDOWS key (between the CTRL and ALT keys) and the PRINT SCREEN keys simultaneously.
Now go to PAINT, put the cursor anywhere in the blank white area and press CTRL and V (the paste keyboard shortcut) and the portion of the PDF that was on the screen will display within PAINT.
Do a SAVE AS and select JPG.
From that point you can do whatever you want.......

Here's the main point of it:

What I usually do is view the PDF so the image I want is on-screen and then do a screen capture. On Windows you can do that by pressing <ALT>-<PRTSCRN> and then open up the Paint program and do <CTRL>-V to paste the screen shot. Then you can crop the image as necessary and save it as a .JPG file.

Anything from Vista on should have a Snipping tool.

Open the snipping tool and draw a box around the pic and select save.

If the PDF is online I can snip it and send the pic to you.

You were more verbose Craig!

Thanks all for the help!

Oh - what about resolution? For publication in magazines, etc, they like items at 300dpi.
