Clicking "Copy Images" in this way will copy all images from the selected conversation. If you only want to copy certain images, select them first, then hit "Copy Images".

Furthermore, if you need to copy only images from messages within a certain timeframe (e.g. messages from last month), you can narrow the displayed images by using the "Set Date" function in TouchCopy. Simply click the button and set the dates to search between. Apply the date range, and TouchCopy will return only the images sent and received between your dates.
