How to save chart as TIFF image in Excel?

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.

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 3: Click the Crop button on the Home tab.

Step 4: Save the image with clicking Save button or pressing the Ctrl + S keys simultaneously.

Step 5: 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.


Some users may be not familiar with the Paint tool, and this tool can only save one chart as TIFF image at a time. If you have Kutools for Excel installed, its Export Graphics utility can solve these problems easily.
