How to Copy From Word to Photoshop


To copy text or graphics from Microsoft Office Word to Adobe Photoshop, both programs must be open prior to starting the copy-and-paste task. Using the Windows clipboard, text and graphic objects are copied from Microsoft Word, maintained in the clipboard's memory and then pasted into the open Adobe Photoshop file. You will have to paste text into a text object in Adobe. However, you may paste graphics directly into a Photoshop file.

  • Open the document with the text and graphics to be copied in Microsoft Word.

  • Open "Adobe Photoshop."

  • Drag the cursor over the text you want to copy to select it in the Word document.

  • Right-click on the selected block of text, and click "Copy" from the context menu.

  • Click the "Text," or "T", icon on the top taskbar in Adobe Photoshop, and then click inside the Photoshop file where the text block will be placed. A box appears to accommodate the text.

  • Right-click inside the text box, and select "Paste" from the context menu. The text from the Word document is pasted into the text box in the Adobe Photoshop file.

  • Right-click on a graphic in Word, and select "Copy."

  • Click in the Adobe Photoshop file where the graphic will be placed, and click "Paste." The graphic is pasted into the Photoshop file.
