Is there a way to insert an image inside a cell?

When I choose "Insert -> Picture" it inserts it so it's floating over the cells. That's not what I want.

I want to be able to insert the image into cell A1, for instance.

Cannot be done. Cells are for alphanumeric data only.

Anything else, like an image, would only be pinned to the cell, but not inserted.

You can try and fudge it by resizing or merging adjacent cells to fit around the image thereby making it look like it's inside.

But no, you can't insert an image into a cell.

send to background once the picture is properly aligned, its a way around locking it.
