Unfortunately, you can't use cut-and-paste to import external
graphics into Squeak.
To bring a picture into Squeak, you need to have it in a *file*, not
just on the clipboard. So if you have a picture on the Clipboard and
you want to import it into Squeak, you'll first need to go through
the intermediate step (outside of Squeak) of creating a file to hold
[On the Mac, for example, you could start up the Preview application,
choose "New from Clipboard" to import the picture into a Preview
document, then use "Save" to save the resulting document into a disk
There are several ways of importing a file-based graphic into Squeak,
of which perhaps the two easiest are:
(1) In the Finder, use drag-and-drop to "drop" the file onto a
running Squeak; you'll see desired picture appear as a new
SketchMorph within the Squeak window.
(2) Alternatively, from within Squeak, open the golden Navigator,
and hold the mouse down on the "Find" button until a menu appears.
Choose "find any file" from this menu. In the ensuing blue
file-chooser, choose the desired file, and hit the "Open" button to
bring it into Squeak.
