I want to use the photo of a contact in the Address Book/Contacts in another app. What is the easiest way to export the contact photo in Mountain Lion to an image file? Dragging it out to the desktop does not work for me: I always get the photo Resize window instead.
Assuming Mountain Lion 10.8.2:
You can now paste the image anywhere you want.
For example, you can open Preview and, when it's ready, select the menu File < New from Clipboard, and a new window will open with the photo in it. You can then save that file in any format available to anywhere you wish.
