      How to copy and paste a single pixel

      I want to copy a single pixel and then paste it in the position of
      another pixel in the same image.

      (This is in effect changing the colour of the target pixel, isn't it.
      But in my case copying an existing pixel seems simpler than selecting a
      colour from the swatch or using the colour picker.)

      What is the most efficient way of doing this?

      I tried to select one pixel with the marquee tool. Then copied it with
      control-C, but then how do I select the target pixel and paste with
      control-V?

      Thanks for your help.
