Hello

Trying to find a code which will insert all images into specified cells.

http://www.ozgrid.com/forum/showthread.php?t=86240

All of the images are in a single folder C:/My Documents/Pictures

All are .jpg images which contain the prefix EV_

ie: image1 is called EV_10020003.jpg
image2 is called EV_40B00001.jpg
image3 is called EV_C003001.jpg

etc.


Throughout my worksheet I have cells containing text of an image
ie: in F23 contains the text EV_40B00001
in G50 the text EV_C003001

etc...


My aim would be to use a command button to search through my worksheet (Sheet1) and load up each image to their corresponding cell.

can this be done this way?


thanks for any help.

Hello,

i am currently trying to adapt Rikrak's formula below so that it will point to a certain folder on a hard drive. Can anyone advise how to do this please?

Currently i can only get this formula to add images when they are in the location of C:\

yes i am aware that the file path needs to be in column B. if i have C:\ i can get the image to load using the macro above as long as i have an image with the correct name saved in C:\
if i change it to C:\my documents and have the correctly named photo the macro runs but it will not load the images.
it seems to me i need an extra part written in the macro to point it to the correct folder so it can then get the relevant images.


i am trying to create a pricelist that will load each photo to match the relevant file name. So far it works but all photos must be in C:\


Try this, it will insert specified images in column C.
Assuming:
Column A = imagename (AL-100Y)
Column B = imagepath (c:vonnieimages)
Column C = place to insert image
Image extension can be jpg or gif



Sub InsertPictures()
Dim row As Long
Dim picPath As String
Dim Picture As Object

row = 1

While Cells(row, 1) ""
Cells(row, 3).Select

Hi,

Since you were all so wonderful with my last problem, I was hoping you could help me again...

What I am trying to do is insert an images into a cells and then merge them together.
To put this into context, I have images of hose fittings and hoses. I would like to have a column of Inlets, a column of Hose Types, and a column of Outlets. I have the images for these three columns and I would like to have a fourth column that is an image of the whole assembly, Inlet-Hose-Outlet that uses the first 3 images merged together. I could do this with Photoshop or something but the shear number of images I need to create would take weeks!

I know you can combine data by using '&' but the images don't work in the same way that regular data does, so maybe I have to insert the images in a special way?

Any help would be very much appreciated.


I am trying to insert a PNG image into Excel via the Insert->Picture button in Excel 2007. When I select a PNG image file nothing happens (IE no image is inserted and no error message is displayed). When I select other image formats, such as BMP images the images are inserted correctly. Inserting PNG images used to work in Excel 2003... Any ideas?


Here is my situation:
I have a folder with many sub-folders containing approx. 3,000 images. I need to copy about 200 of these images into a separate folder to burn to a cd, but they are all throughout the sub-folders so it would take a while doing it one by one.

My question is, is there a way to create a new empty folder, have an excel spreadsheet with all the names of the images I need to copy in a column and have that somehow link to the folder containing the 3,000 images to pull them out into the new empty folder?


Hi all,

This is my first post here, hope someone can help. I have a work related task in which I need to find a way to insert images (from a specified folder - which has another macro for it) by clicking on a command button - the images insert in the H column. However, the problem is that the images from the source are not all of the same size hence they dont actually fit the H column cells ... is there any way this can be automatically done using another macro I suppose,. any help in this matter is appreciated with example codes or fixes - please see attached spreadsheet file template of the same.

Any questions please let me know, I am looking forward to someone helping me out here. Many thanks for looking into this, and please I am still a newbie and go easy with me

cheers,
Sid

My problem is i have over 7000 jpeg images and i have limited space on my webserver. I need to upload just the images that match my excel worksheet.

On column C I have on row 1 - example1.jpg, row 2 - example2.jpg, row 3 - example3.jpg all the way down to about 250 rows. I have on my hard drive a pictures folder with over 7000 jpeg images. The text values on column c down to row 250 will match the jpeg image files.

If its possible to create a macro to find only the jpeg images in the pictures folder based on the text values on column c, and once it find those images to copy them to another folder?

thanks for your help in advance



I have in C:\Mach&Equp\ at present 112 folders ( number of folders will increase)
and each folders have
pictures of variours parts of machines and equipments. Some folder might
have just one or two and some might have more than 20 pictures.
Every folder has a unique ID number.
In excel when I give the folder ID number in A2, if it can display all the
images it has in a sequence starting from column E in a group of five of
size approx 1 inch. (i.e first five images in a row and then the second five below and so on )
For example In case if any folder has 22 images the that will be displayed
say totally in five rows.
Can there be a small gap in between two images both horizontally and vertically
so that it looks more clear.

Thanks

I have an excel workbook with pictures contained as an image. The images were inserted "From File". I would like to copy the image and resave as a JPEG in another folder. How can I do this? No, I do not have the original folder of images.
When I try to copy the image and paste into a folder, it will not give me the PASTE function.


I have a list of text strings which I would like to use as hyperlinks to images.

Many of the images are in a folder where I have setup some hyperlinks already.

However Iwould like to speed up the linking process asthewre are several thousand images .

Is there a formula which will allow me to do this...use the first few character of the text strings using vlookup?. I note that the first ten or there abouts characters match the image name but the image may have a longer text string overall.

I also need to link images in folders in a deeper tree - can this be done using a hyperlink in a file stored in the root directory? Is there a limit?


The column C in my excel file list the product's image. Something like this:


GF456.jpg
JG564.jpg
Al454.jpg
23232.jpg
334.jpg


I have the folder c:\ProductImages with thousands of images, including the images in the column C of the excel file. What I need is to move to a new folder ONLY the images that are related on the excel document.


I have found some codes online but not exactly to do this.


Anyone could help me please?

Thanks in advance!!!


Could anyone explain how to insert images into specific cells in Excel 2007.
Specifically, I am recording artifacts. Each artifact gets a row. Columns are 'material', 'color' etc., and I want the last column to be a 2x2" image of the artifact. Ideally, I'd like to be able to import the image directly from the camera (like how you can use clips editor to control your digital camera).

In any case here are the questions broken down:

1. how do you insert images into cells in excel (not just floating)?
2. how do you make them automatically conform to a nice small size?
3. is it possible to import directly from a digital camera?

I'm using 2007.

Thanks!


Hi everyone,

In my word document I have a table: two columns, three rows. In the first of these cells I would like to insert a picture ... call it First.emf. In the second I would like to insert Second.emf, etc, on to the sixth cell. The images are in the same folder, in the order in which I would like them to be inserted. Is there a way to write a macro that will do this automatically?

(Of course, I actually have hundreds of images, not just six .... otherwise I would do it by hand.)

Thanks in advance for your help.


Hello,

I am inserting cropped high quality images. The original images are roughly 3000x2000 and the resulting cropped images are around 100x100.

I crop the images before inserting them into Excel, however when I insert the small images into Excel, Excel performs some blurring effects. These corrupt the image as I'm really trying to get a pixel per pixel definition of the image and this can not be gained from the inserted images. Is there any way to turn off this blurring effect?

I have to create a dvd of image files. The images will be in the root and subfolders. My spreadsheet has the list of files with the subfolders. The images come from a production scanner which names the files with hexidecimal numbers. The description of the images, the image filename and some other keyword information about the images are stored in the spreadsheet. Ideally, when I distribute the dvd, I would like the user to click the image file name and have the image open. So, Can I create hyperlinks to the images on the dvd, no matter what the drive letter of the dvd drive has been assigned? If so, How???

Thanks,
TP


Hi, I was wondering if I would be able to link a spredsheet to a directory on my computer that is full of files.

In other words, if a directory on my computer is called: 'Images', and it is full of say, 100 files. That I could link a spreadsheet to that folder, and when I open the spreadsheet, it would create a row automatically for every 100 image within that folder.

Then if an image is added to that folder, it would automatically add a row to the spreadsheet with the same name as the new image.

If images are removed from the folder, the opposite happens, its corresponding row is removed.

I am trying to manage the state and notes on each image in one place, rather than manually adding it to the spreadsheet every time an image is removed or added to the images directory.

This seems like something that should already exist but i have not known anyone to use anything like it.

Any help please?

Thank you so much!


Say I have a picture that also has writing in it, if I resize this picture I want the writing to still be legible. Excel 2007 does this quite effectively, I'm not sure what image rendering/smoothing/anti-aliasing techniques it uses, but the text on the image is still easy to read.

However, when I place an image in a form, and resize it (stretch to fit), no post-processing image rendering is done, and it is nigh impossible to read the text in the image. Is it possible to force Excel to render images in forms in the same rendering engine for images in forms that it uses for images in sheets? Is there anyway to get the images to render in a way that will make the text legible?

Oh, and please don't suggest that I save a copy of the image at a lower resolution, I am dealing with hundreds of images so that isn't feasible.


First off all, sorry for my bad english,
I hope anyway, that you would be able to understand me )

Simplifying, this is what I would like to do:

I have three columns:
in the cells of column A, there is text
in the cells of column B, there is text
in the cells of column C, I would like to insert, using macro, different images.


The images in each cell of column C should be taken in:
"C: \ path \ images" + "the text of the cell in the A column of the same line" +. "Jpg"

That is:
C1: "C: \ path \ images" + A1 +. "Jpg"
C4: "C: \ path \ images" + A4 +. "Jpg"
C7: "C: \ path \ images" + A7 +. "Jpg"
C10: "C: \ path \ images" + A10 +. "Jpg"

And so on every three lines...

This is why: each cell where I want to insert the image if followed by 2 other lines with extra data.


That is, as stated before,
I would like the macro will work only in the cells:
C1, C4, C7, C10, C13, C16, C19, C22, etc. (every 3 line in the cell in "C" column)

Can you help?

A person in another forum to insert images in cells posted this macro,
but I don't know how to change it to resolve my problem

Code:

Public Sub m()

Dim sImmagine As String
Dim sPath As String
Dim c As Range
Dim rng As Range
Dim sh As Worksheet
Dim lLarghezza As Long

sPath = "C:\Prova\"
Set sh = Worksheets("Foglio1")

With sh
Set rng = .Range("H1:H20")
For Each c In rng
If c.Value <> "" Then
sImmagine = ""
sImmagine = sPath & _
c.Value & ".jpg"
If Dir(sImmagine) <> "" Then
c.Select
.Pictures.Insert( _
sImmagine).Select
Selection.ShapeRange.Width = _
c.Width
End If
End If
Next

End With

Set c = Nothing
Set rng = Nothing
Set sh = Nothing

End Sub






Thank you really a lot!!!


I have a worksheet containing a lot of jpg images. I have a script to hide the images and then the image I want to appear pops up when I select the correct name from a drop down list.

When I want to add a new image I unhide all the images, delete the old image, insert the new one and change the name of the picture to reflect the users name.

However all of a sudden I am unable to add any more pictures as I am getting the following error:

"run-time error '1004' - unable to set the visible property of the picture class"

After spending a bit of time investigating I believe the error is occurring because I seem to have hit the limit of the number of images I am able to insert. When I try to insert a new picture the name of the picture is "Picture 252".

Is there a limit to the number of pictures that you can insert? Is there any way to change the setting in VBA? I assume it is something to do with the "Picture" class...

Thanks....Jamie.


I am using excel 2010 and I need to store images in an excel file (I mean, really store and not to have a link to an image".

Suppose I have an image in "C:\img.jpg".
I insert the image thru the menu (Insert/Image) and then close the excel file and delete the image. If I reopen the excel file I can see the image in it. This means the image is stored in it.

Since I want to execute this process I have recorded the macro getting the following code:

Code:

    ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert("C:\img.jpg").Select


If I execute the above code and then save the excel file and delete the image, when I reopen the excel file instead of seeing the image I get an error message saying that the link to the image is wrong. It clear that in this case the image has not been stored but just the link to it.

Any idea about the way to store images using vba?




Help required please.

I have 2 folders, one is of images, the other folder contains excel workbooks. Each workbook has a corresponding image in the image folder.
I am hoping it is possible to insert the image into the workbook with the same name E.g. 123456.jpg inserted into 123456.xlxs.

As I have thousands of these it would be handy if it could loopthrough the different workbook names and add the relevant image, save then close.
Unfortunately the files are not all currently saved as Jpeg's, some .TIF and .bmp. But this is easy to change if necessary.

My experience of VB is very limited, so as much guidance as you can offer would be great. Thanks

Hi Everybody!!

I am a newbie to excel, was wondering whether you guys out there can help.
I have over 30 images that require to be placed into 1 sheet, one subject. Over 70 images per subject!!!

At the moment i manually place these images in one by one and then resizing to fit into an " image placement area" (I created the space by putting boarder around an area, all pretty basic). The size of the area for the first area is from D2 to V2 wide and D2 to D28 height.

What i want is to select all the images and then they are placed into the areas automatically. Each box starts at D2, D32, D62, D92...last image is placed at D872. At the moment when i select all images for input they just all overlap one another.

Whatever help is appreciated




Folks,

I have a simple spreadsheet with product size, quantity, description and visual (containing a small image).



I'm looking for code that will delete images completely when deleting the entire row in which they reside. At the moment I have images set to "Move and size with cells", however this deposits the re-sized image over the cell lines above.

Is there a simply way to automatically delete an image from the worksheet when deleting the corresponding row?

Thanks in advance,

gor
