Copy an image from a Web page into a Word doc?

May 31, 2010 / Updated: May 31, 2010 / Lena Shore


How can I copy an image from a Web page to paste it into a Word doc on my Macintosh? When I do it using the Control-Option-Click and select Copy Image, then go to Word and select Paste, it pastes the address of the image, not the image itself.


I right click the image to copy or download the image. BUT where most programs will paste properly, word is not one of them. Like you, I got the link. Instead download the file and place into word. You think they would fix that.
