I'm not sure.  I would doubt that the select + cmd-C would work (copy
is cmd-C on OSX, not ctrl-C), since you would be selecting the HTML
context of the image, not the image itself.

right-click->copy image does seem work for me. I successfully pasted
into Chrome, Preview, and Photoshop.  After you copy, can you create a
New Document from Clipboard in Preview (cmd-N)?  Maybe it's OpenOffice
that's having a hard time.

I am using the PySide binary from
http://developer.qt.nokia.com/wiki/PySide_Binaries_MacOSX on System
Python 2.7.1 on 10.7.1
