You can save the clipboard with:

if clipboard.getdata(vbCFBitmap) then ' save if it has a bitmap
    savepicture clipboard.getdata(vbCFBitmap),"filename"
    end if


I find it odd that you cannot use save picture on the second picture box directly.  Does it save a white picture, a zero length file or give an error?
