The suggestion you pointed to suggests to set "move and size with cells" from within the properties box for the picture.  I have done that but when I resize the cell, the picture doesn't resize.  That would clearly be a perfect option if it worked.  It doesn't appear to.  I am using Excel v2007.  What am I doing wrong.

it works just fine for me.  It will only move with rows and columns that it fully covers.....If the last row that it "touches" is row 10, mvoe row 9. If column C is the column it touches, move column B

I am trying to keep the pictures inside the grid lines for each cell, but still have it expand and contract as the cell size increases or decreases.

you have to make sure that it completely covers the cell or else won't resize.....Just rezise the image to exactly the cell borders.

Leaving out the grid lines would make this particular sheet very hard to read.

I  don't understand.  I'm not saying remove the gridlines....I'm just saying resize A1 to the picture size and make sure the border of A1 is exactly the border of the picture....
