        As you know many of the controls in UIKit now come pre-loaded with the ability to copy and paste text. You can also use this new ability in your own apps to copy and paste other things including: images, SQLite databases, text or any file. This is a great way to share data between your apps if you want to provide users with a suite of apps with integrated functionality.



     CopyFrom Source Code
        -(IBAction)copyImageToPasteBoard{
            UIPasteboard *appPasteBoard = [UIPasteboard pasteboardWithName:@"CopyFrom" 
                     create:YES];
            appPasteBoard.persistent = YES;

            NSData *data = UIImagePNGRepresentation([UIImage imageNamed:@"Old-Time-Photo.jpg"]);
            [appPasteBoard setData:data forPasteboardType:@"com.appshop.copyfrom.imagedata"];
        }

        -(IBAction)copyStringToPasteBoard{
            UIPasteboard *appPasteBoard = [UIPasteboard pasteboardWithName:@"CopyFrom" 
                     create:YES];
            appPasteBoard.persistent = YES;
            [appPasteBoard setString:textView.text];
        }
        PasteTo Source Code
        -(IBAction)pasteImageToPasteBoard{
            UIPasteboard *appPasteBoard = [UIPasteboard pasteboardWithName:@"CopyFrom"
                     create:YES];
            NSData *data = [appPasteBoard dataForPasteboardType:@"com.appshop.copyfrom.imagedata"];
            imageView.image = [UIImage imageWithData:data];
        }

        -(IBAction)pasteStringToPasteBoard{
            UIPasteboard *appPasteBoard = [UIPasteboard pasteboardWithName:@"CopyFrom" 
                     create:YES];
            textView.text = [appPasteBoard string];
        }


    Using UIPasteBoard in iPhone programming is amazingly simple and opens up some possibilities that we did not have a year ago. To use UIPasteBoard you simply create a instance using pasteboardWithName, put stuff into the paste board and then set the persistant property equal to YES. Then any app can get a reference to your paste board and use the data contained within. You can use it for simple strings and even data that you can put into NSData like SQLite databases.

You can simply get raw (binary)data of the image form general pasteboard by sending dataForPasteboardType:(NSSting*)PasteboardType message to general pasteboard, if it's copied from Apple's built-in Mobile Safari or Photos App. (@"com.compuserve.gif" for the pasteboard type in my case)

I myself feel a bit foolish for not having checked all the passible methods sooner. :(

My confusion comes from items property of the UIPasteboard. I thought that items are containing all of data of current pasteboard. So I try to save that array from pasteboard and want to use it later, but I were totally wrong.

As documented in UIPasteboard Class Reference, the items property contains dictionary with key being the representation type and the "value" the object associated with that type.

At this point of time, The "value" refers really "value" of the representation, not the data of that type. This meaning of the "value" is the same as the value of thesetValue: forPasteboardType: method.

On the other words, you cannot retrieve raw(binary) data of the image from items property, even if you set the image to the pasteboard by sending setData: forPasteboardType: message.(I tested it on IOS 7)

In addition, raw data of the image from items property in IOS 6.0 seems a bug of that OS version. (This may not true, it's just my opinion)

You can get NSData from UIPasteboard if you specify right PasteboardType:

NSData* pasteData = [[UIPasteboard generalPasteboard] dataForPasteboardType:(NSString*)kUTTypeJPEG];
<MobileCoreServices/MobileCoreServices.h>

The UIPasteBoard will contain whatever is placed in it. It's up to the app that is copying to the paste board to put the contents in the proper format. The app can place items as raw binary data or as objects such as UIImage in the paste board.

If you're getting something different between iOS versions, you're probably using different versions of the app or it's simply copying things differently.

You're right that you can't represent an animated GIF in a UIImage because a UIImage only contains a single image. Perhaps the app is just copying the first frame's bitmap data in that case?

You can convert a UIImage to raw JPEG data using UIImageJPEGRepresentation.

First of all, thanks for answering. I know that the contents of UIPastedboard are up to where the contens are copied from, but as I mentioned before, I'm focusing on Apple's built-in Photos and Mobile Safari. (not the other verious third-party apps) There seems a workaround, because when I copy animated gif from Mobile Safari and paste it to built-in email app, it works properly. I tested it several times and I figured out that Email app isn't re-download it from url, just paste it from UIPastedboard. (I copied it from safari and turned on a airplane mode and pasted it to email app, it works)

I don't understand what you mean by mail it? You can paste the webpage image copy right into the mail app and it will appear as an image.

You can rebuild the data from the Apple Web Archive pasteboard type if you need to manual. It is essentially a XML document with html and the actual image data all within. The html and accompanying images are base64 encoded. If you want to look at an archive example save this, or perhaps a simple webpage in safari as an archive. Open the archive file in something like Text wrangler. Text edit will probably try to render it.

I've written a post on how to make an Apple Web Archive pasteboard type that might help you understand the process.

I take it you are trying to mail it from within your app and not using the mail app?

If this is the case you will probably have to get the xml from the pasteboard, find the tag that holds the encoded image data, decode it and create an image from the decoded data.

forgot to update the status of question.I figured out the solution after i posted the question.thanks though for your time.
