It should be there, but since it isn't text you need to use the expanded 
clipboard syntax:

   put the clipboarddata["image"]

will give you the binary data. If you ask for the type of content in the 
clipboard:

  put the clipboard

it should say "objects". You can paste the image, or set the imagedata 
of another image to the clipboarddata["image"].
