How to Add a Background Picture to MS Excel Sheets

I am in the habit of maintaining Excel sheets for many purposes in my daily life. The advantage that comes along is its immense potential to maintain tables and operate on them, highlight cells or text, sort and filter data, and the list goes on.

Though I have my sheets named according to relevance, I get confused at times among similar kinds of sheets. So, I attach background pictures (in the context of data) to such sheets which in turn help me recognize them easily. Here’s how to do that.

Step 1: On the selected Excel sheet navigate to Page Layout  and click on Background.

Step 2: Browse for the image that you want to insert as background on the current sheet.

That’s all you need to do. And thenceforth your work sheet will have a beautiful background picture to match the theme of your data or to help to easily recognize different sheets. Apart from this you may change the background color and appearance of the grid lines in accordance with your preferences.
