 How to enlarge or shrink picture with one click in Excel?

Supposing there are multiple pictures in a sheet which are in different sizes. Do you have any ways to enlarge or shrink these pictures in one size with one click? There is no built-in feature to solve it, but in this article, I introduce a VBA code to enlarge or shrink all pictures in the sheet with one click.

    Dim xRg As Range, sPic As Shape
      For Each sPic In ActiveSheet.Shapes
        If Target.Column > 1 Then
            Set xRg = Target.Offset(, -1)
            With sPic
              If TypeName(.OLEFormat.Object) = "Picture" Then
                  If .TopLeftCell.Address = xRg.Address Then
                      .Height = 350
                      .Width = 250
                  End If
              End If
            End With
        ElseIf Target.Column = 1 Then
            With sPic
                If TypeName(.OLEFormat.Object) = "Picture" Then
                   .Height = 60
                   .Width = 60
                End If
            End With
        End If
      Next sPic

Sorry, I did not know why it does not work in your case, but before carrying out this tutorial, I have tested it several times.

When I save as a Macro-Enabled workbook, close and then re-open, the image integrity has been lost.

I have tested that to save the workbook as macro-enable workbook, reopen the macro-enable workbook, the image is still there, and the code can work as well. Maybe try to save the workbook before you saving it as macro-enable workbook.
