I'm not sure I know what you are asking. However, there are many ways to copy an image.

If you have the image on its own layer: (mac) select the layer, command+j, will duplicate the layer. if you wish to merge those layers, select the layers you wish to merge, command+e will flatten them. (pc) substitute the command option for control (if I remember correctly)

Another way: In the same layer, use your marquee or lasso tool to select the image you want to copy, (mac) hold command to ensure you have control over the placement of the image, then while holding command, hold down the option(alt) key to copy and drag. The icon will become 2 arrows one black one white when copying. I believe on a pc it's control + alt, but I haven't used one in so long I could be wrong about the specific keys for a pc.
