Hi All,
I have the below code to insert images into my worksheet from a URL; however, it doesn't save the image with the workbook/worksheet - I need the code modified below so that it saves the actual image with the worksheet and displays it if I share the file with someone else. Help! :)

Code:
Sub URLPictureInsert()Dim Pshp As Shape
Dim xRg As Range
Dim xCol As Long
On Error Resume Next
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set rng = ActiveSheet.Range("D10:D27")
For Each cell In rng
filenam = cell
ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert(filenam).Select
Set Pshp = Selection.ShapeRange.Item(1)
If Pshp Is Nothing Then GoTo lab
xCol = cell.Column + 1
Set xRg = Cells(cell.Row, xCol)
With Pshp
.LockAspectRatio = msoFalse
If .Width > xRg.Width Then .Width = xRg.Width * 2 / 3
If .Height > xRg.Height Then .Height = xRg.Height * 2 / 3
.Top = xRg.Top + (xRg.Height - .Height) / 2
.Left = xRg.Left + (xRg.Width - .Width) / 2
End With
lab:
Set Pshp = Nothing
Range("A2").Select
Next
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Instead of using Pictures.Insert() to add the image to the worksheet you could try using Shapes.AddPicture.

AddPicture has 2 arguments, LinkToFile and SaveWithDocument which you can use to determine how the inserted image is to be treated.

Thank You! I am a very new to VBA - would you be able to help me with the actual code so I can copy/paste? :)

Thanks so very much Norie!

Perhaps something like this.
Code:
Sub URLPictureInsert()
Dim xRg As Range
Dim cell As Range
Dim rng As Range

    On Error Resume Next
    
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    
    Set rng = ActiveSheet.Range("D10:D27")
    
    For Each cell In rng
    
        Set xRg = cell.Offset(, 1)
        
        With xRg
            ActiveSheet.Shapes.AddPicture cell.Value, msoFalse, msoTrue, .Left, .Top, .Width * 2 / 3, .Height * 2 / 3
        End With
                
    Next cell
    
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    
End Sub
