Way to start PDN with the clipboard contents pasted

Recommended Posts

Is there a way for me to copy a picture in another program, then start PDN with the contents of the clipboard already Paste(d) in to New Image? The simple Paste command would be OK too. I think this would be kind of handy and it feels like something that could be done with a Windows shortcut with the right parameters. I don't want to use a macro program.

I guess I need to stress PDN is not running before I copy the image from another source.

It would be nicely convenient to have PDN start with the clipboard contents already pasted.

There's no way to get Paint.NET to auto-execute something like Ctrl+Alt+V. You'll simply have to do it manually. In other words, there's no /pasteIntoNewImage command-line parameter.
