Copy-paste image into Photo from clipboard behavior

Recommended Posts

I'm using Designer and its great. One thing holding me back from Photo unfortunately is that when i copy and image into the clipboard and paste it into Photo, it doesn't automatically size the artboard/canvas to the size of the image. Photoshop does this as follows.


When you copy something into the clipboard, you do a cmd-n and Photoshop starts a new tab with the Canvas defaulting to the size of the image in the clipboard. This is really useful. I am copying images and pasting into Photoshop all the time.


In Photo, unfortunately, it doesn't auto detect and set the size. This would be less painful if there was a way to quickly resize the canvas to fit the image, but I don't know how.

Hi Babak,


Welcome to the Forums


You can do this by going to File > New From Clipboard or by using the shortcut ⌥⇧⌘N :)


I hope this helps
