Set Background in Excel Tutorial

Background Image

Microsoft Excel allows you to add any image on the background as the background image that appears along with the text. However, you must remember that the background images will never appear if you print the sheet. Therefore, this is not at all a print related option. You can access this option under the Page Layout Tab listed as “Background” in the Page Setup Group.

Alternative to placing Background

  • Instead of setting a predefined background, you can also choose any picture, Word Art or Shape from your files and insert it into your sheet. To make it like a background, adjust its transparency accordingly.
  • You can also use the area of the header and footer for inserting any image or object.
