Hi,

I'm not very familiar with Publisher at all.

But I have a very simple task.

I simply need to copy sections of an image ( JPG ) I inserted into publisher,

Move that selected section to another area in the same inserted image
and paste it to where i moved it to.

Not really sure based on the text here what your ultimate goal is but assuming it is to have a modified version of the same JPG image with parts of it moved around, I would do that in Paint (Start, Run, PBrush then enter) this way:

1. Start Paint
2. Open image in Paint and select and move areas as needed.
3. Once you have it as you want it to see it do a CTRL-A in Paint t select the entire image, CTRL-C to copy the whole image to the system clipboard.
4. Go back to Publisher, clear out the image that is there, then press CTRL-V to paste the modified image you just edited in Paint into Publisher.....easy peazy.

Hope this helps.

P. Sisk is spot on!

Modifying a jpg image is a job for Paint and not Publisher!

However, you can use the two programs as stated to accomplish your stated task!

Hi P. Sisk.

i've tried paint,

The image is a bit to large for paint so i have to zoom out, then i miss detail.

when i us publisher, i can see enough detail to select what i want.

just don't know how to select the range in the image so i can move it

So not being a Publisher guru, I can't say how to do it in Publisher or if it even can be done, sorry. I also just spent about 20 minutes in Publisher 2016 trying to decipher how to do it and since you cannot select an individual portion of the picture (only the entire picture for editing tasks) I don't see how this will be possible in Publisher. Sorry.

If MSPaint does not meet your needs, there are many other photo editing programs (free and paid) that might better meet your needs...

They run the gamut from Photoshop, Picture Publisher, Better JPEG Editor, Photoscape, etc.

Just do a quick online search for "jpg editing software" and you will find dozens!

I am sure you will find some that will meet your needs!

I often use software called Paint.Net

It works pretty much the same as MS Paint but with more editing options.

What might be of particular use in this instance is that you can change the position and size of the toolbars so that you can see more of the image.

Thanks

Hi...my two cents...you can use windows snipping tool to get the parts you want from publisher and save as jpg or image if you want, with the detail you want

GIMP and or MS Publisher to rejoin them in a larger JPG file
