Chapter 5. Inserting Pictures and Multimedia > Organizing Clips into Categories

Organizing Clips into Categories

The clips that come with Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003 are already organized, but if you've added clips without organizing them, it's probably hard to find what you need in a hurry. The Microsoft Clip Organizer sorts clip art images, pictures, sounds, and motion clips into categories. The Clip Organizer allows you to organize and select clips from Microsoft Office, from the Web, and from your personal collection of clips. To help you locate a clip quickly, you can place it in one or more categories. You can also assign one or more keywords to a clip and modify the description of a clip. When you add media files, Clip Organizer automatically creates new sub-collections under My Collections. These files are named after the corresponding folders on your hard disk. To help you find clips later on, Clip Organizer also creates search keywords based on the file's extension and folder name.

Categorize a Clip

Click the Insert Clip Art button on the Drawing toolbar, and then click Organize Clips at the bottom of the Clip Art task pane.

In Clip Organizer, click the File menu, point to Add Clips To Organizer, and then click On My Own.

Locate the folder that contains the clip you want to add, and then select the clip.

Click the Add To button, and then click the collection to which you want to add the clip, or click New to create a new folder. Click OK.

Click Add.
