Excel Images - Two New Features -  IMAGE function and Data from Image

Excel has two new image-related features coming out. In this video, a preview of my teaching session at the ASAP (American Society of Administrative Professionals) Virtual Event in November, I walk you through these two new Excel functions.

The IMAGE Function inserts images into cells from a webpage or other source location. You can use an image function to load images from anywhere right into your spreadsheet cells (and retain sorting and filtering capabilities).

IMAGE Function Syntax

=IMAGE(source, [alt_text], [sizing], [height], [width])

The only required argument is the source.
