How do I copy a PDF image and paste it into a word document?
ROBERT PAULBECK 312 days ago
I don't know why we are discussing screenshot tools all of a sudden :) There is a "snapshot" tool built right into Acrobat and Reader: If copying the image does not work directly (which it should, if you have the right to extract content), you can use the Edit>Take a Snapshot tool to take a "picture" of the content in your PDF file. The tool will copy that snapshot to your clipboard, so that you can paste it right into e.g. a Word document.

What version of Acrobat or Reader are you using?
In Acrobat and Reader XI you can use the "Selection Tool for Text and Images" - which you can find right next to the hand tool. If it's not there, right-click on the toolbar, go to the "Select&Zoom" category and add it to the toolbar.
With that tool selected, you just select the image, right-click and select to copy.
In Acrobat, you can also use the Tools>Content Editing>Edit Text and Images tool to select the image, then copy.
You also in Axrobat X, and XI click on the image and extract the image and save. See if you can extract as PNG File. Save extracted image to Desktop or somewhere you can find on your computer.
There are various easy, free, third party (small) applications that allow you to capture “screen-shots”, i.e., any image on your computer screen and paste it into anywhere you need to use an image.
One example I’ve been using for years is Gadwin. I’d be lost without it for desktop publishing stuff. There are loads of ways around “your need” I guess but if you start using screen grabs you’ll wonder how you managed without them!
These two you can create the Grab save then send to a service that provides a URL Link.
Both Skitch and and Snagit allows various types of annotation: Text, Text Boxes and Balloons, boxes, arrows, circles.
