How to lock an image in an Excel cell

In this tutorial, we will learn to lock images in an Excel cell. We have created a tourist guide that includes pictures of various locations in pain, along with their names. To ensure that the pictures stay in place and maintain their size even if the worksheet is changed, we have decided to use the “Move and Size with Cells” option to lock the pictures in their respective cells.

Locking an image in an Excel cell means that the image will be fixed in position and size, and will not move or change size even if you add or delete rows or columns in the worksheet. This is useful when you want to keep an image in a specific location and prevent it from being accidentally moved or resized.
