    Question Can't insert picture into excel

    Hi there,

    After all my years of using excel I have never ever seen this. I cannot insert an image. If I copy a workbook onto my home computer, I also cannot see any inserted images. All I see is a placeholder like this: https://youtu.be/VAbG28zrcpo (I don't know how to attach a screenshot so I made a 30 second youtube video). Totally stumped... goodness am I doing something ridiculously stupid? Anyone know what?

    I'm using office 2013. I have been for years. I've just noticed this is also the case in word. ... just all of a sudden.

    Thanks in advance,
    Michelle

    Hi Michelle,


    should be able to

    once you insert image in the workbook, re-size the image to fit into cell, right click on the image, format picture, properties, select move and size with size. That is it !

    Thanks Bluesky, but it has nothing to do with the size of the cell. It seems to be a problem with both word and excel. This is what happens when I insert an image... and then strangely if I open the document on another computer, I see the image.
