Excel - Image Preview

Hi, i have an excel sheet that contains 30 rows of data. I want to be able to put in an image into each of these rows, however i do not want to clutter the excel sheet.

Is there some sort of way that i can insert an image so that it only displays when a user hovers over a certain cell or is it possible to preview an image in some other similar method, thanks in advance...

Once you click 'Format Comment'
Click 'Picture' Tab and insert picture

You could insert image into comments and then that would show on mouse-hover

There is a mac option available on the link I provided. That option is for Excel 2008 only.

I can't Believe that this feature is not in XL for mac - its been in XL since version 2000 - are you sure?

In the newer versions of XL

Use the Review menu and choose New Comment
Click on the comment border to select it then Right-Click

Select Format Comment-> Colours and Lines
On Fill Colour, use the drop-down to select Fill Effects
Select the Picture Tab, then Select Picture
