On my Mac, in Excel, image will not paste. Says image can't be displayed. On a PC, this was never an issue. How do i fix?

Also pic size in an email, on my Mac is very small. On a pc, I could click the corner and make it bigger, don't have that option now. How do I fix?

LOVE Jing!!!!!! Have share with many friends. Thanks in advance for your help.

Office application s on Mac can't use Pasted images. what you must do is save the file (best format as PNG) the Go to Insert menu → Pictures  → from File. Once inserted click on picture and a Tab "Format image" will appear click that and you can adjust size.  And just things such as image placement (Alignment and others) This is instruction for inserting and formatting on Office. Not inside snag-it.
Note Unless you intend show picture at original or smaller image size, avoid JPEG like the Plague. JPEG is a Lossy format. This means to reduce size it throws away pixels that the eye is almost impossible to see. to compress and reduce size. To crease the size it add empty pixels to make up or compensate. If this is done once or twice there is no issue. However the more you go through the compression De-compression routines the quality suffers. Eventually the image will look like a an old 35mm filmstrip that has overhead and begun to melt.  PNG format is not Lossy and does not throw away or add pixels so you increase or decrease physical size with little to no affects.
