    Oh i just realised this post was about mac, that wasn't obvious in the search results. I have no idea if the image move and size with cells is available on mac (though id assume it would be)

    Greg the issue isn't 'anchored' images, you can already make an image move and size with a cell (image size and properties), which as i understand it is more or less the same thing.

    The issue is really that if you filter the data the images are not reliably moved, its a pain to have multiple images in a cell (manually placing them) or mix image and text, and the floating images despite 'move and size with cell' just plain doesn't work well in a spreadsheet.

    It would be awesome to be able to say something like =C1 and the same image(s) appears in that cell as in C1, and even better being able to say something like =PICTURE("TickImage") & " Tick" and it gets TickImage from a collection of images (i guess similar to named ranges but its images so that they don't have to be stored on a sheet) I could even see a use for embedding word art and similar things in a cell and being able to say "=WordArt(Style1, NOW())" (for example)

    Its 2017, can we stop treating images and embedded objects as 3rd class citizens in excel (yes they still need to be able to be floated but is it really that much harder to optionally treat it as cell content).

    For example i have a grid in my app that has a column that has a bunch of indicator images in each cell, i want them exported to excel but its not really possible without cell image support.
