You can save a chart as an image in Microsoft Excel . These are ideal for visual data presentations. Therefore, when we want to share it as a photo, so that other people can easily view it, it is easy to achieve. Here we are going to show you how you can do it in simple steps..

One very positive thing about charts and graphs is that they can tell a kind of story about our data. In many cases, you don't need to share an entire spreadsheet to show your income, expenses, and sales; even the family budget.

By simply saving a chart as an image in Excel, you can send it to anyone . In this way, even a person who does not have Excel on their device, nor any other office suite, will be able to see the graph in question..

The first thing we will do is open the spreadsheet and then we will right click on the graphic that we want to save as an image. A new menu is displayed with several options, the one that we are going to select is the one that says "Save as image".

Once the "Save as image" window opens, we will have to select the location where we want to save it; we can put the file name we want. We can even use the drop-down box below the name to select the image format, the most popular being PNG and JPEG ..

When we have everything configured, then we will proceed to click on "Save" and the graphic will be usable as an image.

The only downside to converting graphics to images is that it is not available in Excel for the web. The only alternative is to copy the graphic by right clicking and selecting "Copy" and then pasting it into another application.

In case the app we are using does not accept the graphic as an image either. The only alternative is to go to the Excel sheet and take a screenshot in Chrome or any browser. It is possible to do this in Windows in a simple way by pressing the "Print Screen" key and then pasting in Paint or any image editor, pressing Ctrl + V.
