Default Putting a picture "into" an Excel cell.

I am going to paste 10 very small .jpg files onto an Excel 2003 spreadsheet. Each picture is so small that it would easily fit into one Excel cell. I'd like to treat each picture the way Word allows you to - essentially pretend it is a big "character". Thus if the cell's Shrink To Fit or Wrap Text is on, I'd like the cell to resize to fit the picture.

If the above is not possible, then I'd like the picture to be absolutely associated with that cell, so that no matter what I do to the cell or to the Zoom of the spreadsheet, the picture is always displayed IN the cell, not stretching above or below it or anything weird like that.

What is the best way to accomplish this in Excel 2003? Thanks very much.

-Phil

I think I found the answer - apparantly the closest thing in Excel is to create a comment attached to the cell, delete the comment's text and set the background of the comment to be a picture. That's the only way to get a picture to be associated with a cell.

Would this work? Set the picture over the cell, double-click the pic, select Properties tab, then "Move and Size with Cells."
