Digitizing (Converting) picture of a graph to excel data

New Contributor

Hello everybody,

I am wondering if there is any tool in excel or extension that converts a graph or a plot (as an image) to excel data (table or plot)?

I am aware that there are some software and websites that can do that

But, I would like to know if I can achieve that through MS Excel

I really do appreciate your response.

Thank you.

Depends on your Excel version/platform. In general it exists in modern Excel


Dear @Sergei Baklan , 

Thanks for your reply. I believe the given snapshot is from 365 version.


However, is this option capable to extract data from a photo of a graph? I know that it is extracting the data from a picture of data (columns and rows).


Please advise if you have tried it before with graphs. Thank you so much
