Importing and Exporting Graphics

Clip art has its place, especially in presentations and informal documents. But professional-quality corporate reports typically require graphics such as photographs or image files produced by professional graphics artists. To add graphic files to Office documents, choose Insert, Picture, From File.

Office can read any graphics file format for which it has "filters," the software that converts the graphic format into data usable inside the Office application. This is a particularly good illustration of the practical value of Office 2000's Installed on First Use (page 1379) setup option. Previously, users had to choose filters when installing Office, which required trying to guess what file formats you might encounter at some unknown time in the future. Now you don't have to guess—install those filters you know for certain you will use, and if you encounter a different one, Office prompts you to install the necessary additional filter.
