Copy Excel Selection as a Picture

Want to show someone a chunk of an Excel spreadsheet via email or iChat? You could take a screenshot, but if you want to show just a portion of the Excel window and you don't use a utility like Snapz Pro, you can do this right from within Excel 2008. Make a selection, hold down the Shift key, and choose Copy Picture from the Edit menu. You can select whether the selection will be rendered as though it was shown on screen or as though it was printed. Then just switch to your desired destination and paste.

Poll Preview: Buy and Buy -- In days of yore, Macworld Expo was the place to go for amazing deals on Macintosh hardware. Sales of Macs and peripherals at the show no longer catch the attention they once did, and the changing fortunes of local Macintosh dealers, computer superstores, mail order catalogs, and online retailers have all affected where we shop. So where do you prefer to shop for Macintosh-related hardware, both new and used? Register your vote on our home page today! [ACE]
