How to rotate an image based on a cell value in Excel?

Author: Sun Last Modified: 2017-08-23

In Excel, we can rotate the image by dragging the mouse, but have you ever tried to rotate an image based on a cell value. For instance, the image will be rotated by 90 degrees if the cell value is 90 in Cell A1 as below screenshot shown.

Rotate an image based on cell value with macro code

Only a macro code can help you to rotate an image based on a cell value in Excel.

1. Type a value into the Cell A1 you will rotate the image by, and then activate the image you want to rotate.

2. Press Alt + F11 keys to enable the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, and click Insert > Module to insert a blank new Module. See Screenshot:

3. Paste below code to the Module script, then press F5 to run the code. See screenshot:

VBA: Rotate image by cell value

Sub RotateImage()
Selection.ShapeRange.IncrementRotation ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Value
End Sub

Note: in the code, A1 is the cell you want to rotate the image based on, you can change it as you need.

This is what I want to do to an image, but I want it to rotate from the vertical position by however many degrees the cell states each time. However, say the cell says 30, it will rotate 30 degrees, but then if the cell value changes to 15, it will rotate 15 from the 30 position (45 from the vertical). I want it to rotate 15 from the vertical this time. Is there a way to do this?


Thanks!

Take the code from above:

Selection.ShapeRange.IncrementRotation ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Value

And modify it like so:

Selection.ShapeRange.Rotation = ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Value

Hey there, I have the same requirement too. Have you by chance figured out how to have the image rotate from "zero" every time?
