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
