Copy and Paste an image from Word2007 to Paint.NET


Scenario: I got a docx document by email, with an image embedded inside.  I needed to take it to Paint.NET for some cropping and resizing.  Usually I’d copy the image, then “Paste as New Image” on Paint.NET (using Ctrl+Alt+V, or the Edit menu). Problem: Paint.NET did not recognize the clipboard content as a valid image. Solution: I pasted the image into the good ol’ Paint.exe, then copied from there, and “Pasted as New” in Paint.NET
