Left click curson on the image to select.
Enlarge the image by dragging the lower left corner in order to get a better resolution for positioning the cross hairs.
Right click the image and select "Get coordinates" from the context menu.
After this opening procedure each mouse click on a point followed by Ctrl C writes the actual list of the coordinate pair at the selected cursor position into a Copy&Paste List.
Selecting a input cell position you can copy the list with Ctrl+V
