There are two formats for graphic clips. Some applications accept both formats, some only one. For example, Mozilla Mail accepts only format one, Microsoft Mail accepts only format two and Microsoft Word accepts both formats but treats them differently. You can choose which format to use. Digital photographs can be very large. To paste them into documents or emails you will want them reduced. You can have the reduction done automatically when you paste. The size to which you want digital photos reduced is set in Tools / Options...
You can choose a default pasting format here...
This is the format which will be used when you paste using hot keys, paste letters or bulk pasting.
You can choose which format to use at the time of pasting. When you move the mouse over a graphic clip, four buttons appear.....
Button 1 pastes format
one at full size.
Button 2 pastes format one at your chosen reduced size.
Button 3 pastes format 2 at full size.
Button 4 pastes format 2 at your chosen reduced size.
The same four buttons are also used the the pictures browser (on the pictures menu). Using the picture browser, you can browse through your digital photos and paste them into documents or emails with automatic size reduction.
What are Formats
One and Two?
In a format one graphic clip, the picture is placed into the Windows clipboard as a bitmap and the target application reads it directly from the clipboard. In a format two graphic clip, the picture is saved to a file on your hard disk in JPEG format, Some HTML code detailing the location of the JPEG is placed on the clipboard. The target application reads the HTML code and displays the JPEG.
