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 

  put the clipboard

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