    Post Help! Is it possible to use VBA to view images directly from hyperlinks?

    Hi Everyone - I'm new to the forum, and hope this question is appropriate for the forum.

    I work with relatively large files on a daily basis with 100's to 1000's of images everyday, and cannot view the images without clicking/pasting them into a browser. I am curious to know if there is a way to create an image viewer that would pull images from a desktop, cloud, or FTP folder without saving them to the spreadsheet itself. My file sizes would get out of control quickly if I were to use a macro to insert the image, and I was hoping there would be a way to do this via Visual Basics.

    Finally, if this task is possible, can anyone recommend a coder/tudor to help create and walk me through the basics to apply it to other sheets?

    Thanks in advance for your time and reply!

    -George

    These links may help
    Excel VBA Picture Viewer Project

    Userform - Combobox - Images View - Tutorial - Excel VBA Userform

    If you do a search for something like Excel image viewer, you'll find several useful sites.
    Surround your VBA code with CODE tags e.g.;
    [CODE]your VBA code here[/CODE]
    The # button in the forum editor will apply CODE tags around your selected text.
