Chapter 25. Inserting Pictures > Inserting Clip Art in Your Document

Inserting Clip Art in Your Document

Clip art is one of the most economical tools you can use to illustrate a document professionally, and with Word, using clip art is easy. Microsoft Office includes a good collection of more than 1,000 clip art images on disk, and if you're on the Internet, you can download even more. In addition, Word includes a clip art gallery that organizes your clip art into categories and shows you a miniature picture of each piece so you can choose it visually, rather than guessing what a picture looks like by its file name. Word's clip art gallery works equally well with Microsoft clip art and with non-Microsoft clip art packages.

Microsoft Clip Gallery not only manages your clip art, letting you organize, preview, and insert clip art pictures but also is the tool you use in Word to organize and insert sound clips and video clips. The gallery automatically accesses Microsoft clip art that is stored on your Office CD when the CD is in its drive. Other clip art must be added to the gallery—even if the clip art is already on your hard disk—if you want to use the gallery to preview and insert it. If you want to have access to the clip art on your Office CD even when the CD is not in its drive, you must copy the clip art to your hard drive and add it to the gallery.
