  1. Cool! But how do I set page size and multiple pages from the same spreadsheet and without creating a new spreadsheet with the image?

    How can I cope a cell value as the file save name?

      I'm by no means an expert with VBA, but I would assume that you simply assign it as a macro, like you usually would. ('Sub' at the beginning determines the name).
