Adding pictures to Notes on Excel Office 365 on Mac.

New Contributor

Hi there, is there a way to add pictures to Notes in Excel Office 365 on Mac? 


I was able to do it on previous versions of excel, when Notes was previously just termed Comments by using:

1.Edit comment

2.Format comment

3.Color fill in etc...

However, the only formatting I am able to do is only format the shape.

Any help would be appreciated!

Weird one as the official Microsoft support page says you can still add an image to Notes.


Perhaps maybe try it on a different spreadsheet, and/or another Mac computer to see if it works?


Best wishes!

I can't seem to be able to acheive what you have?
I'm using Excel on a Mac and there is no option to insert a jpeg.


Sorry, I can't help with Mac. On Windows that's Color->Fill Effects->Picture. Do you have any options in drop-down menus under the Fill?
