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.

Thanks to everyone who purchased for your support, and a special thanks to our authors for working so hard to help us release all four ebooks simultaneously with Tiger. Next milestone: 10,000 sales!

Take Control of Your Inner Control Freak -- No, it's not really one of our upcoming titles, but the clever folks at Joy of Tech used it in a comic poking fun at Apple and Steve Jobs over the recent fuss surrounding Apple's removing Wiley books from Apple Stores in retaliation for what Jobs presumably believes is an unflattering biography.
