How do I copy part of a placed image in Publisher? I have two placed png scans on a single Publisher page. I want to copy part of one image over to the other image. When I do a freehand select of a part, copy it, and then paste it, what I get is the whole of the first image, not just the freehand selected section. This was done in the Photo Persona BTW, as I assumed I had to when working with a pixel image.

Do I need to get out of Publisher and do the copy/paste thing in Photo?

Publisher Win 7, V 1.8.5.703

When you Place an image you get an (Image) layer. If you want to operate on its pixels you need to make it a (Pixel) layer by Rasterizing it. Layer > Rasterize... or right-click on it in the Layers panel and choose Rasterize....

Rasterize & Trim: You would use that after using the Crop Tool in Photo if you want to make the crop permanent/destructive. It will throw away the areas of the photo you cropped out.

Rasterize to Mask: After rasterizing, it will move the layer down into the layer below it as a mask.
