I'd like to automatically copy an image (that is saved from MATLAB) into a Power Point presentation. Ideally I'd like to copy an image onto the clipboard, and then be able to paste it into Power Point.
Automator will only allow me to copy the file path, not the file. I tried running a shell script in Automator with the path, "cat $1 | pbcopy" but that will only copy text or EPS files (which Power Point won't let me directly paste).
Effectively I'd like to automatically grab a .png, .tiff or .jpg (or something like that) and put it on the Mac clipboard. Any ideas? I'm running OS X Lion BTW.
