Photoshop to Excell

So I've designed an invoice in Photoshop, is there a way I can bring it into Excell and use it as background template to do invoicing?

My take on it would be to take the various elements of your Photoshop document and Save each as a jpeg (here I'm hoping you've got clearly defined elements and not loads of gradient stuff which blends with other stuff).

Then open your new Excel doc and insert the jpegs you've created from file, placing them in cells which you've moved around / re-sized as best to replicate your photoshop doc.

There's prolly better ways of doing this - but I confess to being less than expert with Excel.

I'll give that a go. It's a very very basic and simple look. In essense just a page border with the logo.



Can I just make the cells to fit and colour them orange?

Apparently you can put the image into the header of the excel sheet (page set up header thing)

Yeah, I would redraw that in Excel.  There's no sensible import route.  Export the logo as a nice big image, and just paste it into the appropriate space on the page.  Use Excel's Set Print Area to tell it what cells it cares about, set page options to centre that vertically and horizontally with sensible margins, and turn off Print Cell Lines if it's on. 

I thought it was going to be something complicated!
It takes blood and guts to be this cool but I'm still just a cliché.

why not just use it as a background in a word doc?

Word not that good for calculations in an invoice though.

can you not cut and paste from excel to word? i always do the calculations the old fashioned method with a calculator and just manually input the figures onto the invoice.

Ah but if I do it in excell I can do other things eventually like inventory and tally up how many times something has been out etc.

Yet more unhelpfully, I'd be tempted to get a bunch of those templates printed up and then just print invoice details over them.  That way you won't keep running out of orange ink.

They very rarely get printed, 90% of clients just ask for pdfs.
