  2. Select an image by clicking on it
  3. Windows: Right-click on the selected image and select 'Copy to clipboard' or hold Ctrl-C to copy the image to the clipboard.
    Mac:Ctrl-click on the selected image and select 'Copy to clipboard' or hold Option-C to copy the image to clipboard.
  4. Open your chosen source program (e.g. Microsoft Word) and paste the image into the desired location (Ctrl-V on Windows machines and Option-V on Macs).

All done. Simple, huh?
