Locating and Inserting an Online Picture

If you need a picture to insert into a document and don’t have one, you can search for and insert clip art from Office.com (New!), a picture from the web using Bing Image Search (New!), a picture from your SkyDrive (New!), or a picture from an online service (New!), such as Flickr. Office.com is a clip gallery that Microsoft maintains on its web site. Clip art includes photos and illustrations, such as vector images, which are mathematically defined to make them easy to resize and manipulate. To add an online picture to a document, you click the Online Pictures button on the Insert tab, and then locate, select, and insert the picture you want.
