Using the Search Feature
Clicking on the clip art icon activates PowerPoint's clip art gallery. Type your search term(s) in the Search text - box and then click on the Go button. When the samples appear, scroll through the thumbnail images. When you have made your choice either double click on the image or click once to select the image and then click the OK button.
- If you did not install the Clip Art Gallery when you installed PowerPoint to your computer, you will need to be connected to the internet in order for PowerPoint to search the Microsoft website for the clip art.
- You are not limited to using clip art from Microsoft. Any clip art can be used, but if it is from another source, it must first be saved to your computer as a file. Then you would insert this clip art by selecting Insert > Picture > From File...in the menu. This is convered in Step 5 of this tutorial. Here is a site for clip art designed specifically for the web.
