Formula for inserting a thumbnail picture into excel cell based on another cell s value

0 votes

In connection with another problem, I need to do the following:

if the value of cell A1 is greater than 100, cell C1 will show a thumbnail image of my face. If the value of cell A1 is less than 100, cell C1 will show a thumbnail image of my friends face.

The face thumbnails are PNG files that are kept on my desktop.

Without using Macros, I'm attempting to achieve. I suppose there could be a formula like

=IF(A1>100,SETCELLIMG(c:\users...\Desktop\myface.png))

I am aware of how to drag and drop a *.png thumbnail into a cell using the mouse, however the instructions I have called for cutting and pasting. Additionally, the instructions I have to prevent the thumbnail from changing based on the value of another cell. I'm not really sure if this is even doable in excel.

This absurd problem serves as a proof-of-concept for how I will approach a different challenge.
