When I drag and drop nothing happens, can you make it work?

what type of images? jpg? png? – NoCarrier Feb 24 '10 at 18:13
I was expecting all types but even jpg/png or .ico would be fine for now? – Kevin Boyd Feb 24 '10 at 18:17
I tried jpeg, jpg and gif but no luck with Excel 2007 – r0ca Feb 24 '10 at 18:27

If you are using Excel 2007 or greater, try the shortcut key ALT+N, ALT+P

That might be the fastest way.

I was specifically looking for the drag / drop feature to improve productivity. – Kevin Boyd Jan 12 '11 at 13:52
Yes I know, but I don't think there is one that's why I tried to give you the next best thing. – GONeale Jan 18 '11 at 5:44

have you tried to insert them using excel's insert image features?

I have been doing that, but it doesn't seem to be super productive... was looking for a faster, efficient option, hence the question... – Kevin Boyd Feb 24 '10 at 18:52

Here is a workaround: drag into MS Word and then drag into Excel.

Definitely better then going through the Insert system.

The easiest way I've found is to copy the image itself by viewing it first and then copy it into the clipboard. Then it can be pasted into Excel.
