Lesson 2: Clip Art
Objective # 1 The Clip Art Gallery

The Microsoft Clip Gallery contains a wide variety of media to choose from. The clip gallery is also conveniently available from every Microsoft Office program. The Microsoft Clip Gallery contains a wide variety of media to choose from, including clip art, sound files, as well as motion clips. You are sure to find an item for every occasion. The images are broken down into different categories by their grouping (ex. Picture of a lion would be under animal), or the type of object.
Objective # 2 Insert Picture
One main way to insert clip art is to use the Insert Picture function. In order to Insert a picture, click insert on the toolbar and move the mouse down to picture. Then select clip art. There is another way of inserting clip art, but generally, most people find this method to be the easiest.
Objective # 3 Insert Object
An additional way to insert clip art is to use the Insert Object function. In order to insert clip art using this function, you should click insert on the toolbar and move the mouse down to the object. I would suggest that most first time users of clip art use the Insert Picture function. Although it is convenient to know two different ways to complete the same task, it is far simpler to use the Insert Picture function over the Insert Object. I generally still prefer to use the Insert Picture function and I encourage all of you to do the same.
