Locating and Inserting Clip Art

To add a clip art image to a document, you can click the Insert Clip Art button on the Insert tab to open the Clip Art task pane. The Clip Art task pane helps you search for clip art and access the clip art available in the Clip Organizer and on Office.com, a clip gallery that Microsoft maintains on its Web site. You can limit search results to a specific collection of clip art or a specific type of media file. After you find the clip art you want, you can click it to insert it, or point to it to display a list arrow. Then click an available command, such as Insert, Make Available Offline, Edit Keywords, and Delete from Clip Organizer.
