How to save chart as TIFF image in Excel?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2020-09-30

As we know, Microsoft Excel does not support users to save a chart as TIFF image directly. In this article, I will introduce a tricky way to save an Excel chart as TIFF image with Paint tool, and a handy add-in of Kutools for Excel to save multiple charts as TIFF images in a minute.

Save an Excel chart as TIFF image with Paint tool

Normally the Paint tool is installed in the Windows OS by default, and we can apply it to save an Excel chart as a TIFF image with following steps.

Step 1: Right click the chart in the workbook which you will save as TIFF image, and select Copy from the right-clicking menu.

Note: You can also copy the chart with clicking it and then pressing the Ctrl + C keys simultaneously.

Step 2: In Windows 7, open Paint tool by clicking the Start button > All Programs > Accessories > Paint. In Windows 8, open Paint tool with clicking the Paint icon on the start screen directly.

Step 3: Then paste the chart into the Paint editing area with pressing Ctrl + V keys at the same time.
Note: After pasting the chart, do not click anywhere in the editing area to remain the chart selection.

Step 4: Click the Crop button on the Home tab.

Step 5: Save the image with clicking Save button or pressing the Ctrl + S keys simultaneously.

Step 6: In the opening Save As dialog box, you need:

  1. Open the destination folder where you will save this chart in;
  2. Enter a name for this chart in the File name box;
  3. Click the Save as type box and select TIFF (*.tif;*tiff) from the drop down list;
  4. Click the Save button.

Up to now, the specified chart has been saved as a TIFF image already.
