Is it possible to copy product pages?

Is it possible to copy product pages?

I'm building products into my PowerStore. Each product is a picture (photograph) and depending on whether the product is a paper print or a canvas print the product page and options are the same for every product. The only thing that changes is the picture thumbnail and a larger image inserted into the large description. As an example with paper prints I set up the product page with checkout description, short description and long description. I then have 3 selectable options, 12x19 inch, 18x24 inch and 24x36 inch. Each of these options has a different price and the pricing is the same independent of the picture being sold. A second option set is applied which applies a print coating with 3 options, none, gloss and semi-matte. Each of these again changes the price of the product. In all cases these options and prices are the same for ever paper print product. What I'd like to do is just copy an existing product and then go into the new copy and change out the unique product title and the image thumbnail and larger embedded image. This would save a huge amount of time from having to add six options and prices for each product page when they are all the same with the exception of the title and picture.

Is this possible? Can I somehow duplicate an existing product somehow to shortcut all the setup time involved in entering each product?

I'm still in the process of evaluating PowerStore. I've been working on it for a couple of days now having installed it Monday and purchased it late last Thurs. night. So far, I've made a fair amount of progress in my evaluation and assuming the back end works as expected with PayPal when I get to the point of testing it I will probably keep the product. What I'm requesting above would go a large way to convincing me that it's reasonably easy to work with. I have to say that I'm a bit freaked out in that you only provide post-installation support for free through forums. Assuming a quick response to questions like these I don't think that will be a problem but I find the one-time charges for support on a product of this cost prohibitive and obviously when working with software that's involved in the transaction of money and selling products, one really doesn't want problems.

Thanks for your response in advance!
