Working With Downloaded Images

This is a cool time saver if you frequently download images from the web or get images from iPhoto that you want to modify. In this case I mean modify the size or format.

Instead of saving to your desktop choose copy.  Now the image will be held on your clipboard.  Open Preview  > New from Clipboard.

Your selected image will open and you can modify the size (Tools > Adjust Size).

When you are ready to save it select File > Save and you can save it in any of the formats listed below.

In a number of cases this will let you bypass the need to use the duplicate feature in Lion.
