You can find thousands of graphics files free for the taking on the Internet. Be
aware, however, that some files have copyright restrictions.
Using bitmap graphics in a worksheet can dramatically increase the size of
your workbook, resulting in more memory usage and longer load and save
times. If you’re using Excel 2002, you can compress the graphics files. To do
so, select an image and choose Compress Pictures from the Picture toolbar.
The most common graphics file formats are GIF, JPG, and BMP, but Excel
supports many other formats. Table 6-2 lists the graphics file types supported by Excel
2002. Earlier versions of Excel do not support all these formats.
