How to extract images from comments in Excel?
In Excel, you can insert image into the comment as easily as you can, but, have you ever considered extracting the images from comment boxes into cells or into a specific folder? This article, I will talk about how to extract the images from comments.
If you want to extract and save the images from comments into a folder, please do as follows:
1. Copy the sheet which contains the comments with images that you want to save into a new blank workbook.
2. And then click File > Save As to save this new workbook as Web Page format in a specific folder, see screenshot:
3. Then click Save button to save the file, then go to the specific folder to view the saved images, two files are generated in the folder, one is the html file, and another is a folder that contains all the images and other files, see screenshot:

To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 2 years agoHello,
Very interesting post. Thanks a lot.
But I do not see how to use it to use the picture for a button of my CommandBar. Let me explain.
I want to share my Excel sheets without sending separatly images for buttons as jpg files (.Picture = LoadPicture(ImageFile).
So I want to hide the images in some hidden cells or in some comments.
No issue to hide the images.
But I do not succeed to get them afterward to initialize my buttons.
Any idea for this ?
Thanks for your time.
