I'm working with a spreadsheet that has multiple images in expanded format.  I was hoping to only have the images appear when I scroll over the appropriate cell.  Currently, there are too many images on the spreadsheet that are in expanded format.  Thanks for your helpEXCEL SCREENSHOT.png

You could actually turn a comment into a picture, that way on hover, it'll display the picture you want to show.

You can turn a note into a picture by creating a new note > right clicking note > format comment > Colors and Lines > Fill > Color > Picture> upload picture from there.

Considering cell D2 with the image path you can type on E2 the following UDF

=AddCommentWithImage(D2)

Public Function AddCommentWithImage(ByRef ImagePath As String)
    Dim rng As Range, cmt As Comment
    
    Set rng = ActiveCell
    
    
    If Not (rng.Comment Is Nothing) Then rng.Comment.Delete
    Set cmt = rng.AddComment
    cmt.Text Text:=""
    With cmt.Shape
        .Fill.UserPicture ImagePath
        .Width = 481.5864
        .Height = 359.7734
    End With
    
End Function
