I will try.
Each Project has an image created for it called invite.png. Each one is a specific picture that is like a miniature of the login page that section of the main site. During creation of each new Project, there is a script that takes several components to create this and performs many other housekeeping functions.
The Names for each project are kept as short as possible by using initials that com from the project name so it could be www.projects.com\
joedoe\cdcsoi. This is short and simple but if you were to see that name later and it was one of a 100 others you have no way to know for sure what it is.
The "invitation" is a 30% reduction image of the complete login page which makes it easy on humans to see what the initials stand for.
in this case: joe doe is looking for a chief dog catcher (for the) state of Illinois.
During the creation of the project, when i have the invite.png file at hand if i could add the invite.png as a PICTURE to a WORD doc listing all the Projects along with their URL's it would be a handy thing to have
I already make a list of the URL's but "1 picture speaks 1000 bytes" I could embed the URL into the png and the person using the list could just click the invite.png image to get to that Project page
In order to do this and make it fully automatic, i have to be able to copy that image and add it to the Site List plus Use the Hyperlink took to embed the URL within the original creation script
I can go back afterward and do this on a one by one basis very easy. Copy the invite.png, paste to word doc , it pastes just fine as an image cRight click the image click the hyperlink option and type in the correct URL.
Job done to perfection.
But it is a lot more complicated thanvthat and i have all the parts needed at hand when the site is created to be able to automate the creation of the picture list with embedded URL's if i had a command that would runs in the script.
Think of it like a catalog where you click the image to open to the page for the description of the item. Pretty easy straightforward stuff and i was amazed to find out that while i can find a ton of ways to do it in LINUX Windows apparently does not have a "copy file as Image option. And definitely not one that had scriptable command line interface for automation.Using script to copy multiple image files to a page
SO I would have a nice page full of pictures that can easily descrive where they go thta can be clicked to reach each project.
I hope this helps but i don't think all this description will do much to help find a way to do it because there probably thousands of other reasons why someone might want to "copy a file as an image" instead of just copying a file-name or path to a document. Think Signatures, photo albums, catalogs, etc. And it is VERY easy to do by hand one at time.
But this is MY reason for wanting it and why i want to be able to script it rather than doing a one-up by hand
