I am trying to use VBA to automate the Change Picture function when you right click a Shape in Excel/Word/Powerpoint.

However, I am not able to find any reference, can you assist?

You can change the source of a picture using the UserPicture method as applied to a rectangle shape. However, you will need to resize the rectangle accordingly if you wish to maintain the picture's original aspect ratio, as the picture will take the dimensions of the rectangle.

As an example:

 ActivePresentation.Slides(2).Shapes(shapeId).Fill.UserPicture ("C:\image.png")

So far as I know you can't change the source of a picture, you need to delete the old one and insert a new one

Here's a start

strPic ="Picture Name"
Set shp = ws.Shapes(strPic)

'Capture properties of exisitng picture such as location and size
With shp
    t = .Top
    l = .Left
    h = .Height
    w = .Width
End With


Set shp = ws.Shapes.AddPicture("Y:\our\Picture\Path\And\File.Name", msoFalse, msoTrue, l, t, w, h)
shp.Name = strPic
shp.ScaleHeight Factor:=1, RelativeToOriginalSize:=msoTrue
shp.ScaleWidth Factor:=1, RelativeToOriginalSize:=msoTrue

End With


Set shp = Worksheets(1).Shapes.AddPicture("d:\pic\1.png", msoFalse, msoTrue, l, t, w, h)
shp.Name = strPic

End Sub

How do I make vba use the "change picture" function, My pictures all have different aspect ratios. but I can't find anything about keeping that functionality and changing the picture using vba. The goal is to create a sort of GUI for users in which sometimes I need a single image to fire a macro that toggles something, and so the image needs to change to reflect this. I am open to swapping embedded image files OR using wide images while only showing part of the image that has the appropriate graphic element in it.

In Word 2010 VBA it helps to change the .visible option for that picture element you want to change.

  1. set the .visible to false
  2. change the picture
  3. set the .visilbe to true

that worked for me.

VBA code to change image - Excel General, In data Sheet i set up cell "E3" to select the code of a car (A,D or L plus 3 numbers e.g. L003) using data validation from a pivot table. Cell "E4"  Change image with a VBA User-Defined Function If you’re working along with the example file, look at the UDF tab.   Finally, we will consider a VBA user-defined function.   This is a formula created using VBA macros to insert and change pictures.

what I do is lay both images on top of eachother, and assign the macro below to both images. Obviously i've named the images "lighton" and "lightoff", so make sure you change that to your images.

Sub lightonoff()

If ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("lighton")).Visible = False Then
    ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("lighton")).Visible = True
    ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("lighton")).Visible = False
    End If

End Sub

  • Have you tried using the macro recorder and checking what the auto-generated code was?
  • @assylias this is one of the (few) actions recorder doesn't record
  • @chrisneilsen fair enough - I didn't know.
  • Technically this adds a fill to a shape, and the fill won't be visible if your shape is a picture.
  • Worked well in excel
  • Hi Chris, I thought about that too, however, when it comes to Shadow, Contrast, Brightness, I cannot even change their properties, it will give me errors like copying the property from the old picture to the new picture. But, I can programmatically like Shadow.Blur = 30, but if I say NewPic.Shadow.Blur = OldPic.Shadow.Blur, I get errors.
  • Either record the properties of the old picture in variables before deleting it or leave the picture in place while you copy its properties, record its z-order, then delete it and move the new picture back to the original picture's z-order
