Gallery for image upload and reuse
The Gallery is a new section on the toolbar for you to upload media for use in your Workbook. The image file types allowed are JPEG, JPG and PNG. The file size maximum is 9 Mb.
Uploading an image and adding it to your worksheet
Upload the image by browsing your file folders or drag and drop the file.

Click Add to Media Gallery to upload the image.
Select the image from the Gallery, and click it or drag it onto your worksheet.
