Image as a Background in Excel

  • I need to paste a picture as a background, set the transparency freeze the aspect ratio but scale the row height and column width so that cells line up with features within the picture (eg a drawing) and then click on a cell and type data. I find that clicking within the picture selects the picture and to get to the cell, I have to start out side the picture and crawl back in.

    I used to be able to paste a picture into Excel and "send to back" and then set the transparency and click on a cell within the bounds of the picture and type text over it but this no longer works.
