    When adding a picture with the Comment / Fill method, will the picture embed so that when the spreadsheet gets copied or emailed the pictures will follow?

    Hi, I have been able to format comments by using pictures for the "fill effects" but my portrait photos keep getting changed to landscape, and I can't seem to rotate the comment box. Please help!

    Did you have to purchase Kutools to get the extended tools for the comments. We only see the Font section we don't have the option to click on a color and lines tab. We are using Excel 2013.
