How to Embed an Image in a Cell
Adding images to your Excel spreadsheets is a great way to enhance and customize them. While Microsoft Excel does not offer a way to embed images directly into spreadsheet cells, images can be added to a cell comment, which is the box that appears when you hover the mouse over a cell. Inserting images into spreadsheet cell comments requires a moderate amount of knowledge of Excel.
Open up or create your Excel spreadsheet.
Right-click the cell you want the image to embed the image into and select "Show/Hide Comments."
Clear all text in the comment box that appears.
Click on the border of the comment to select it. Then right-clock and select "Format Comment" on the menu that pops up.
Select the "Colors and Lines" tab in the "Format Comment" window and click the drop-down arrow next to "Color."
Select "Fill Effects" in the drop-down menu.
Select the "Picture" tab, and click "Select Picture." Locate the picture you wish to use on your hard drive and select.
Add a check mark to the selection box next to "Lock Picture Aspect Ratio" to ensure the image maintains its aspect ratio and then click "Insert."
Click OK twice to confirm and insert the image into spreadsheet.
