24. Next we want to select the right half of the image and copy it, then paste it as a new image. Start by making the selection. View the QuickTime® movie below to see how to make the selection.

25. Once you have made the selection, click Edit > Copy Merged. This will copy the image data into the clipboard. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + C (Windows®) or Cmd + Shift + C (Macintosh®).
