I made an initial contact with support but they were unable to help me. I have Excel for Mac version 16.33. I am trying to use the camera function to place an object from one sheet onto another sheet in the same workbook. The camera function works great with tables but with graphs, I am having an issue. The issue is the one seen here in this link where the image is all zoomed in and funky. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/bug-excel-mac-16111-paste-linked-picture/281e...
I have tried updating and restarting my computer. I have tried putting the image on the same worksheet I took the image from. I have tried manually altering the cell ranges of the picture. I have tried messing with the various cropping options. No luck. I am hoping that there is a way to fix this issue. I think I am not the only one in my class having it.
Thanks for your help.

Also on a Mac. Worked on a similar issue recently on this forum. Noticed that the picture-link only took the top left quarter of the original, as shown in your link. Couldn't figure it out. Now I came up with a work around that may be acceptable until this gets fixed. And it's not as drastic as re-installing Office.
Create four identically sized cells (i.e. a 2 X 2 range like in the picture) and place your original picture in the top left cell. Then reference the linked picture to those four cells.

I do know. I futzed for several hours before giving in. Funny I did mess with some of the cell sizes but I had not thought of your workaround.
I think everyone else having the issue in class was using a MAC. I am surprised such a buggy issue has gone unaddressed this long?

I use mac book pro. In MS excel camera doesn't work properly. After the selection of cells for camera caption, when I paste it, only part of selected cells are being pasted in an enlarged / zoom version. remaining camera captured portion doesn't show at all. Tried several ways, restrart etc., seems there is a bug.
