    Great news. This feature is almost ready. It’s already available in the latest Insider’s update. You can read more about it here – https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_officeinsider-mso_mac/excel-for-mac-insert-pictures-in-headers-footers/b5bc467a-7189-4bf6-be3d-c1a0c928249f

    If all goes well, we will enable this for everyone in the July monthly release of Excel for Mac.

    Thanks again to everyone who voted for this feature.
    Steve K [MS Excel]

        I’m so pleased that the Insert Image option has been reintroduced to Excel for MAC. However, why are the image sizes for Format Picture in the Header & Footer given in inches when the default sizes have been set as metric (cm)? Images inserted in the normal part of the spreadsheet show as cm in the Picture Format Tab! Yes, you can live with this, but it is rather inconsistent. Look forward to the fix soon in a new version.

        Thank you Microsoft. At last we have got back to some of the functionality of Excel 2011. Now for the VBA editor to be fixed.

        This is great news, although the latest version of Excel (as of last week) was crashing my coworkers Mac, so he had to uninstall Office and reinstall without doing updates. I hope whatever bug is in the latest update is also fixed when they release this update.

        HAHAHA yeah, sometimes a zen like attitude to things helps. Still, I would love to know what the issue is/was. Does MS not see a need to support the mac crowd, are they short staffing the team or maybe they are not even full-time on mac issues. It would be sad, but considering the other issues on Windoze and their Office package I am not surprised we get the short end of the stick. Just like the limited version of Office 365 for Mac. Same price fewer features... does anyone know whether that was ever intended to be integrated on the Excel Online version?
        Let's rejoice and give praise to Steve and the team for now! Hurray!

        Dan with regards from rainy Stockholm!

        Well done, always great to know someone is listening. Look forward to using it again.

        This is still under review since Nov 2015? This is very basic for any professional use of spreadsheets. Microsoft, get with it!

        And you have no comment on this in 18 months and the votes and comments keep piling up . DO SOMETHING !!!!

        I had to download Sierra update so I could accept the Office Security updates...went for the full Office upgrade and between both upgrades, the simplest use of Photos and snippets is now all 3 step processes. What the **** is wrong with you? Please put out the fix to be able to drop a photo or snippet anywhere in Excel, Word or Powerpoint again. So **** frustrating...

        How utterly ridiculous Microsoft that you would remove this feature from excel. You are a business, you understand how features like this are used in business, well small business anyway. Perhaps you are just so big now that you have forgotten the small business people out there trying to survive.
        Talk about being disconnected... I can see this has been an issue for some time and still nothing has been done.

      • Kimberly SilkKimberly Silk commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is the most basic of features. I cannot believe I cannot do this in Excel for Mac. The feature was there in 2011 - why on earth would you remove this feature?

        Consider the URGENCY HIGH on this.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        what are you thinking taking AWAY the feature of adding a picture into the header/footer for the MAC user??? this is not an upgrade but a step back. and a very sad one at that, since the newest windows version maintains the feature. kindly reinstall.

        Microsoft hates Apple users and tries to force them buying a PC. They sell office 2016 and 365 for mac-users all the time and collect lots of money for no servicing at all. Really, Excel cannot be used by companies when no logo can be placed in the header. I asked my supplier to get a license code for Office 2011 (everything works fine there) but they refuse. The problem should be solved by Microsoft. No service form the supplier too. I want my f%c$in' money back!

        I am very disappointed that I can no longer insert a picture in excel header for Mac.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Unbelievable that this option was removed in the first place. Unbelievable that it has been missing for over 2 years and not been fixed. Extremely poor service.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would like the capability to add logos/pictures to the header in Excel. I acnnot believe this function was removed, who wants to produce a company spreadsheet for a meeting without the company logo inserted at the top?

        Please restore this asap.

        Unfortunately they just don't give a ****. I am in marketing - the only thing I can think of is that they just truly don't care because in their minds they probably think - just get a PC. NO, you offer your software for both operating systems. You were stupid to remove functionality that is expected to still be there when moving to a new OS. With now 679 votes, I would think this is an issue that would be corrected. Just BS. You have people pleading for a fix, I feel like this thread has been open almost a YEAR.. with the ability to push patch updates, can this please be resolved already so us Mac users can have visual and functional control over the output of our documents created in Excel? We're not just little kids pitching a tantrum over something like ice cream.. we are professionals that expect our software applications to give us the functionality that we need.
