    A 1. 2 .3. 4. A picture to the 5th column
    I want to take pictures at certain intervals, but I want the cells outside the A column to remain in the standard size. I was able to do this by adding one by one picture, but I could set it up while I was throwing the picture in bulk so I couldn't with kutools.
