Copying & Pasting Images/Pictures from a PDF File

If you need to copy a picture or image from a PDF file (or any other file from which you cannot select the picture), you can do it this way:
  1. Make sure the entire picture is visible on the screen.
  2. Copy the entire screen by pressing the PrtSc button (usually near the upper right corner of the keyboard).
  3. Open a paint program.
  4. Select "Paste" from the Edit menu (or hold the Ctrl key and press the v key).
  5. Select the image you want from the paint canvas and either cut or copy it.
  6. Paste the image into your document.
