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.

DealBITS Drawing: MaxSleeve and iProtect Winners -- Congratulations to Peggy Russell of and Michael Bobek of, whose entries were chosen randomly in last week's DealBITS drawing and who each received a MaxSleeve and iProtect from MaxUpgrades, worth up to $38.98. Even if you didn't win, you can save 15 percent off a MaxSleeve and/or iProtect (and in fact your entire order other than shipping) by entering MXPROMODB1 in the Additional comments field when ordering; MaxUpgrades tells us that the discount will not show on order confirmations but will be accounted for in the amount billed. This offer is open to all TidBITS readers. Thanks to the 769 people who entered, 45 of whom entered after being referred to DealBITS. Keep an eye out for future DealBITS drawings. [ACE]
