Inserting Clip Art

You can insert clips from Microsoft's Clip Gallery or your own files. Clips—copyright-free images or pictures, sounds, and motion clips—enhance any Office document. A motion clip is an animated picture—also known as an animated GIF—frequently used in Web pages or videos. You can also insert your own files you scanned or created in a drawing program, and you can organize clip art in various collections using the Clip Art Organizer.

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

Click the Search In list arrow, and then select the check boxes with the collection in which you want to search.

Use the plus (+) and minus (-) signs to navigate the list.

Click the Results Should Be list arrow, and then select the check boxes with the type of media you want to search.
