This includes removing the photo backdrop, adding colour, creative effects, transparency, picture styles, cropping, rotating, and a variety of other alterations to the pictures on your Excel sheet, which can all be controlled via the Picture Format tab. You can generate your photos to add to a workbook or copy and paste images in Excel into a spreadsheet, much like in Microsoft Word. You can even create your images to add. Excel allows you to import graphics, shapes, symbols, and even 3D models and photos found on the internet.

It should be noted that the "Home" and "Data" tabs featured all of the capabilities necessary to format text and create What-If Analysis tables. The "Insert" tab of a spreadsheet has various functions for inserting items, such as photos, into the spreadsheet.

(Insert tab)

To examine the buttons included under the "Insert" tab, choose that tab by clicking on it. It offers several possibilities for inserting a pivot table, a normal table, pictures, charts, maps, and forms. The button labelled "Illustrations" opens a dropdown menu that allows adding pictures to the document. This chapter discusses the pictures, icons, and shapes that may be selected from the dropdown menu accessible through the "Illustrations" button. It is important to note that the "Illustrations" button transforms into a dropdown menu when Excel's window is shrunk to a smaller size. When you enlarge the working window for Excel, the "Illustrations" category of the "Insert" tab will become visible as a list of possibilities to choose from.

Adding Pictures

The capability to upload photographs is shown as the first option in the Illustrations dropdown menu. You can upload an image from a local storage disc by selecting the "Pictures" option. To begin, choose a cell on the active worksheet by clicking anywhere on the page. After that, choose "Pictures" from the menu, and a new window labelled "Open File" will pop up. Choose a picture from your local hard drive, and then click the "Insert" button after making your selection. A picture is inserted into the active cell and chosen right now.

Adding Shapes

A means to add shapes are required to create spreadsheets with processes. Excel has a wide variety of premade shapes for you to choose from, so there is no need for you to manually draw triangles, squares, arrows, circles, or any other predefined form that comes to mind. You may add a shape to your illustration by selecting the "Illustrations" dropdown menu and then choosing the "Shapes" option.

After selecting the "Shapes" button, a supplementary dropdown menu appears with several available options. The picture now shown above displays a small selection of the forms that are accessible; however, you may navigate through many more of them. Adding a shape is identical to adding a photo; the only difference is that Excel will ask you to give the form size.

Formatting Shapes and Images

When working with spreadsheets in drawings and presentations, you need a technique to align and arrange these items. Formatting choices include resizing photos and applying effects to them, but these are only a few available alternatives. Move the circle to the same position as the apple picture while it is still in your spreadsheet. The apple image and the circle will remain present. Take note that the circle is shown above the picture of the apple. You may comprehend how images are shown in a spreadsheet by thinking of them as picture layers added to existing image layers.

If you click away from photos, the "Format" tab option previously available in Excel's menu will no longer exist. When you click on the blue circle, you'll see that the "Format" option reappears in the menu. If you go to the "Format" tab in the menu, you'll see a category called "Arrange" along with the other format options.

Crop a Picture

When you crop an image, you remove some of the pictures from the border to generate a new version of the image. Click the tab labelled Picture Format. If the Picture edit tab is not visible, you may access it by double click on the picture. Click the Crop button located inside the Size group. The dropdown menu on your screen should now reveal your many cropping choices.

Select Crop

You can see that there are now crop handles in black at each corner of the picture and halfway across each edge, as seen in the image above. The crop markings have the appearance of an "L" and dashes. You may choose any of these markings by clicking and dragging your cursor. You may crop off the part of the picture that you don't want by selecting it with the mouse and dragging it toward the centre of the screen.
