A simple way if only few pic.'s
1) insert pic. in a program capable of inserting emf/wmf (in msword: insert picture from file)
2) scereenshot ->clipboard [PrintScreen]
3) paste/pasteSpecial in photoshop

if it is just one image (I know its awkward) you can use the "print screen" button on your keyboard and paste it into paint, then cut it out and save it as a jpeg etc.
