Insert a picture in Excel for the web

Insert a picture in your worksheet to easily show information or add visual interest.

Tip: To add pictures in Excel for the web, you may need to first switch to Editing View by clicking Edit Workbook > Edit in Browser.

To insert a picture that is saved in a location you can access, follow these steps:

  1. Click the location in your worksheet where you want to insert a picture.

  2. On the Insert tab, click Picture.

  3. Browse to the picture you want to insert, select it, and then click Open.

    The picture will be inserted in your worksheet.

Tip: You can also copy and paste an image from the web or an app into Excel for the web, without saving it first and without using the Insert menu.

After the picture is in your worksheet, you can resize it and move it wherever you want.
