    Auto resize images while importing in Microsoft Excel

    Is there an add-in that will auto size a picture within a specified area without having to resize it all the time. I'm trying to design my own trading journal and need to import screen shots saved as jpeg file into a specified area. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You need to read, for example, the width of both the range where you are pasting, and the width of the jpg:

    With ActiveSheet
    'Select the cell where the picture is placed
    Range("rngForJPG").Cells(1,1).Select
    'Insert the picture
    .Pictures.Insert(myImageFileName).Select
    'scale the picture to the width of the column
    myScale = Range("rngForJPG").Cells(1,1).EntireColumn.Width / Selection.ShapeRange.Width
    Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleWidth myScale, msoFalse, msoScaleFromTopLeft
    Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleHeight myScale, msoFalse, msoScaleFromTopLeft
    'Change the row height to the picture height
    Range("rngForJPG").Cells(1,1).EntireRow.RowHeight = Selection.ShapeRange.Height
    End With

    Re: Auto resize images while importing in Microsoft Excel

    Does any one have an addin already designed that you can just drag from the top left cell to the bottom right cell and like format it so that the pics will autosize within that area? What you posted is that a VBA program that has to be added for each area per sheet or is it an addin? I'm not very adept on programming yet but have bought some books that walk you step by step and also am using some online sites that have training. Thanks for the input so far, I couldn't get an answer from three other sites about this question.

    Sirname,

    Select the cells (either manually or in code) where you want the picture to go, and then run this macro.

    Sub InsertAndResizePicture()

    Dim myR As Range
    Set myR = Selection
    'Insert the picture
    ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert( _
    Application.GetOpenFilename( _
    "JPG picture files (*.jpg),*.jpg", , "Select the picture")).Select
    'scale the picture to the width of the column
    myScale = Application.Min(myR.Width / Selection.ShapeRange.Width, _
    myR.Height / Selection.ShapeRange.Height)
    Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleWidth myScale, msoFalse, msoScaleFromTopLeft
    Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleHeight myScale, msoFalse, msoScaleFromTopLeft
    myR.select

    End Sub


    You of course can modify it to choose the range and filenames in code...


    Sub InsertAndResizePicture2()

    Dim myR As Range
    Set myR = Range("Range_Name")
    'Insert the picture
    ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert( "C:\PictureFiles\Picture1.jpg").Select
    'scale the picture to the width of the column
    myScale = Application.Min(myR.Width / Selection.ShapeRange.Width, _
    myR.Height / Selection.ShapeRange.Height)
    Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleWidth myScale, msoFalse, msoScaleFromTopLeft
    Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleHeight myScale, msoFalse, msoScaleFromTopLeft
    myR.Select
    End Sub
