How to extract photos from Pages documents.

A few years ago (in fact, ten! years ago)  I wrote here a about a simple trick that allows you to get a photo out of a Pages document. It's not obvious but quite easy once you know it; and useful because you are probably more likely to remember a Pages document where you used a photo rather than where and under what name the photo is filed and stored.

Once again, in the current version of Pages:

— click on the photo to select it in a Pages document;
— in the Inspector panel click on 'Image';
— click and hold on the photo file icon and drag it to Desktop;
— now you can put it into Photos, send as an attachment, change the file name or use for whatever purposes you'd been looking for it.

There you are, you got back the original photo file in all it's beauty.
