Excel: Export range of cells as jpg

According to the Microsoft website, there is no way in Excel to export a range of cells as a jpeg file. It seems to me that this would be a pretty basic function, but then what do I know. My current solution is to copy the cells to a graphics program (Visio or Paint) and save it from there. That works, but is a bit of a nuisance. One website suggested installing a graphics printer, such as SnagIt. I happen to have SnagIt already installed, so I tested that method. It works, but I could not figure out a way to get just the selected cells. It adds the worksheet header and footer as if I were printing it on a real printer. I guess that makes sense, but it is not what I want. I see that there are several third party programs that say they will do the job. Can anyone vouch for any of them? I really don't need another piece of software, but if it works and has no bad side effects (such as spam from the vendor), it might be worth it. Any suggestions appreciated.
