Thumbs up Answer: Can't insert pictures

Troubleshooting Steps for Inserting Pictures in Excel

1. Make sure you have the latest version of Excel installed on your computer.
2. Check if the file format of the pictures is supported by Excel (JPEG, PNG, GIF).
3. Convert the pictures to a supported file format if necessary.
4. Check if inserting pictures is enabled in Excel settings. Go to "File" "Options" "Advanced" "Image Size and Quality" and select "Do not compress images in file."
5. If the issue persists, try repairing or reinstalling Excel or contacting Microsoft support for further assistance.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
