How to Save Excel Table or Chart As An Image
Recently, I wanted to save an Excel table as an image so that I can add it in one of my blog posts. But, when I tried I couldn’t find any option to save my table as an image. But, I remember sometime earlier that I had saved tables as pictures. I searched online for it, but no forums or blogs, suggested me a good and simple answer. However, it didn’t take a long time for me to figure out how to do it. So, here I am, writing an article on the same, in case it helps you too!
When I searched for the solution online, I found many answers like, saving a excel spreadsheet as a webpage and then, converting that webpage into an image. Or, I found some cumbersome visual basic code (I think so, am not sure)on Microsoft Forums. But, here is a simple solution that I found out to this problem.
You can convert, not only excel tables, but also Smart Arts, Charts and Word Arts into images, using this trick. Let me get to the process now.
If you have a table, already created in Excel,
- Copy that table.
- Open a new PowerPoint presentation.
- Paste the table into an empty slide.
- Right-click on the table, and select the option “Save as Picture”.
That’s it, you are done! Your table is now saved as a PNG image file!
P.S. The same procedure can be followed for converting Smart Arts, Charts and Word Arts into images.
Simple, isn’t it? Please leave your comments and share if you have any other way of doing this.
