How to resize multiple cells to fit pictures quickly in Excel?
As we know, Microsoft Excel supports automatically resize the row height and column width of a cell to fit filled content, such as a long text string. However, the AutoFit Row Height command and AutoFit column Width command are not valid for picture, because an inserted picture does not reside a specific cell.

Supposing there are two big pictures in a worksheet, see the following screen shot. Someone may want to resize a cell to fit a picture above the cell. But how to realize it?
Of course, you can resize each cell automatically to fit pictures above them. However, it may be tedious and time-consuming for a number of pictures. Actually, we can apply a VB macro to resize all cells to fit pictures above them. You can do it with following steps:
Step 1: Hold down the ALT + F11 keys, and it opens the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.
Step 2: Click Insert > Module, and paste the following macro in the Module Window.
VBA: Resize multiple cells to fit their pictures.
Sub ResizePictureCells() For Each Picture In ActiveSheet.DrawingObjects PictureTop = Picture.Top PictureLeft = Picture.Left PictureHeight = Picture.Height PictureWidth = Picture.Width For N = 2 To 256 If Columns(N).Left > PictureLeft Then PictureColumn = N - 1 Exit For End If Next N For N = 2 To 65536 If Rows(N).Top > PictureTop Then PictureRow = N - 1 Exit For End If Next N Rows(PictureRow).RowHeight = PictureHeight Columns(PictureColumn).ColumnWidth = PictureWidth * (54.29 / 288) Picture.Top = Cells(PictureRow, PictureColumn).Top Picture.Left = Cells(PictureRow, PictureColumn).Left Next Picture End Sub
Step 3: Press the F5 key to run this macro.
Now in current worksheet, if there are pictures, the cell bellow a picture will be resized to fit the picture above it. See the following screenshot:
