Inserting Media Clips

You can insert sounds or motion clips into a workbook by accessing them using the Clip Gallery. A motion clip is an animated picture—also known as an animated GIF—frequently used in Web pages. To play a motion clip, you need to view your workbook or worksheet as a Web page. When you insert a sound, a small icon appears representing the sound file. To play sounds other than your computer's internal sounds, you need a sound card and speakers. You can also insert images from a Twain-compatible scanner or digital camera. To insert an image, you need to connect the scanner or digital camera to your computer and install the Twain device software.

Click the Insert menu, point to Picture, and then click Clip Art.

To play a sound, double-click the sound icon.

To play a motion clip, save your workbook or worksheet as a Web page, and then view it in a Web browser.
