Word 2003: Inserting ClipArt & Pictures

Chances are good that you’ve heard of ClipArt. And, if you haven’t heard of it, you’ve probably seen it in one form or another.

Inserting ClipArt or other pictures into your Word document is called Embedding. Embedding simply means that you’re taking a copy of the original image and placing it on your drawing. With embedding, there is no link to the source image. So, if you change the image once it’s on your drawing, the original image will remain unchanged.

You can insert images from several places. In addition to having access to the Microsoft ClipArt Gallery with images stored locally on your computer and a wealth of images you can search for on the Microsoft website, you can insert any number of image files including .gif, .jpg, .tif and .bmp – just to name a few.

And, if you combine your knowledge of indents, text wrapping and ClipArt together, you’ll be able to create those stunning documents that you’ve only admired from afar until now.
