When I copy a linked picture in Excel for Mac (v16 via 365 subscription) the linked image is far larger and blurred. How do I ensure the linked picture is the same size and quality as the original?

  • You can click on the image. Round and boxed corners should appear. Drag to make smaller. Doing so may reduce the blur. Sep 3, 2019 at 23:13
  • @historystamp - resizing the image makes no difference, it's still blurred

Unfortunately it seems like the office suite (Excel included) automatically compresses the image. You'd have to just insert the original image. There may be a workaround for this but I haven't been able to solve it yet. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
