    Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];
    // Insert pictures from the file.

    // Specify picture name and draw a border.
    pic.Name = "Logo";
    pic.AlternativeText = "Spreadsheet Logo";
    pic.BorderWidth = 1;
    pic.BorderColor = DevExpress.Utils.DXColor.Black;
    // Move a picture.
    pic.Move(20, 30);
    // Change picture behavior so it will move and size with underlying cells. 
    pic.Placement = Placement.MoveAndSize;
    worksheet.Rows[5].Height += 10;
    worksheet.Columns["D"].Width += 10;
    // Specify rotation angle.
    pic.Rotation = 30;
    // Add a hyperlink.
