Tip 101: Saving Shapes, Charts, and Ranges as Images

Excel supports quite a few types of graphics, but it doesn’t provide a way to save the graphic as a separate file for use in another program. For example, you may want a separate PNG or GIF file created from a chart, a shape, SmartArt, or even a range pasted as a picture (see Tip 98).

Although Excel doesn’t provide a direct way to export a graphic, here’s a useful trick you can use. First, a bit of set-up work is required:

1. Right-click the Quick Access toolbar and choose Customize the Quick Access Toolbar.

The Quick Access Toolbar tab of the Excel Options dialog box appears.

2. In the upper-left drop-down control, choose Commands Not in the Ribbon.

3. In the list box, scroll down and select Web Options and then click the Add button.

4. In the list box, select Web Page Preview and click the Add button.

5. Click OK to close the Excel Options dialog box.
