There is Selection->Copy Visible which essentially does just that.

Please don't take the pixture down. It's ridiculous to say that
putting such a picture on the internet will cause children to be
abused. People who abouse children are sick; not showing them baby
pictures won't change that. The picture is in no way offensive and
anyone who draws a relation to the Dutroux tragedy is either sick
himself or overly cautious.

Of course it's your choice what to do since it's the picture of your
son. But I don't think there's any reason to take it down.
