workbook.Worksheets.ActiveWorksheet.DefaultColumnWidth = 20;

workbook.BeginUpdate();
try
{
    Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];
    // Insert pictures.
    Picture pic = worksheet.Pictures.AddPicture("Pictures\\x-spreadsheet.png", worksheet.Cells["A1"]);
    worksheet.Pictures.AddPicture("Pictures\\x-spreadsheet.png", worksheet.Cells["A1"]);
    // Specify picture name.
    pic.Name = "Logo";
    pic.AlternativeText = "Spreadsheet logo";
    // Move a picture.
    pic.Move(30, 50);
    // Move and size the picture with underlying cells. 
    pic.Placement = Placement.MoveAndSize;
    worksheet.Rows[1].Height += 20;
    worksheet.Columns["D"].Width += 20;
    // Move another picture to illustrate OffsetX, OffsetY properties.
    worksheet.Pictures[1].Move(pic.OffsetY, pic.OffsetX);
