Adding an Image to a Cell Comment
Adding an Image to a Cell Comment
Most users don’t realize it, but a cell comment can display an image. The image must reside in a
file. In other words, you can’t use shapes or clip art images that are copied to the Clipboard.
To add an image to a comment, follow these steps:
1. Make sure that the comment is visible.
(Right-click the cell and choose Show/Hide Comments.)
2. Click the comment’s border to select it as a shape (or, Ctrl+click the comment to select it
as a shape).
3. Right-click the comment’s border and choose Format Comment from the shortcut menu.
4. In the Format Comment dialog box, click the Colors and Lines tab.
5. In the Fill section of the Format Comment dialog box, click the Color drop-down list and
select Fill Effects.
6. In the Fill Effects dialog box, click the Picture tab and then click the Select Picture button
to specify a graphics file.
7. Click OK to close the Format Comment dialog box.
Figure 156-1 shows a comment that contains a picture of an ostrich head. Using an image in a
comment increases the size of your workbook, so you should use this feature sparingly.
