Saving a range as a graphic image
Saving a range as a graphic image
If you need to save a range as a graphic image, the best approach is to use one of several screen
capture programs that are available. This type of software makes it easy to capture complete windows or
just a portion of a window. After you capture the screen, click a button to save it as a graphics image
in the format you choose (GIF, PNT, TIF, and so on).
If you don’t have a screen capture program, you probably have some other type of graphics software.
When you copy a range of cells, that range is stored on the Windows Clipboard in several different
formats. One of those formats is a graphic image. Therefore, you can copy a range, activate your
graphics software, and press Ctrl+V to paste the range as a graphic. Then save the graphics file in
your desired format.
Figure 98-3 shows a range after it was copied and pasted into a freeware program named IrfanView.

Copying a range is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get thing. For example, if the selected range contains
a chart, the chart will also appear in the image.
For another method to save a range as a graphic image, see Tip 101.
