Sandra, from Phoenix asks, “I’d like to use information from Excel in a PowerPoint presentation. Is there a way to capture a specific cell in Excel as a picture?”
This is actually a hidden little tip that can help users without photo editing software.
Many people understand how to use the “ALT + PRINT SCREEN” to capture the screen as a picture. However, when only a section of the picture is needed, there is another solution.
Highlight the cell or range of cells in which you want to take a picture.
Press and hold the “SHIFT” key.
Click on the “Edit” menu.
Notice there are now two new options on the menu, “Copy Picture” and “Paste Picture.”
See image above.
Click on the “Copy Picture” to create a picture from the highlighted cell(s).
Paste the picture wherever you want it. Instead of pasting the contents of the cell(s), the cell(s) are posted as an image.
When selecting the “Paste Picture” option, the cell(s) are automatically copied as an image and pasted within the Excel spreadsheet.
