Tip 223Turn a Clipboard Image into a File

If you’ve copied an image within a web page or a document and want to turn it into a file, just open Preview (open Finder, select the Applications list, and then double-click Preview), and then hit FileNew from Clipboard. This will create a new file containing the image. Click FileSave to save the file in whatever format you want: select the format from the Format drop-down list in the Save As dialog box. Hold down Option before clicking the Format drop-down list for a wider option of filetypes.
