About online pictures
Clicking the Online Pictures button in the Illustration group on the Insert tab displays
the Insert Pictures window. From this window you can search for a royalty-free clip art
image on the Microsoft Office website, search for a published image on the Internet
by using Bing Image Search, or browse your SkyDrive for an image.
You can insert pictures that are stored online, either your own or publicly available images.
TIP If you aren’t signed in to Outlook with a Microsoft account, the associated SkyDrive
and other site options won’t be displayed in the Insert Pictures window.
If you want to dress up an email message but don’t have a suitable picture, you can
use any of the clip art images available from the Office website without requesting
permission from the image creator. Clip art available from Office.com includes
illustrations and photographs that are free to use and don’t have copyright restrictions.
Using Bing Image Search returns images that are published on the Internet but that
might be otherwise copyrighted. If you want to use one of these images in any public
way, you must check the copyright information associated with the image.
When you search any of these sources, the window displays results matching your
search term. Point to an image and click the View Larger button to preview it.
Click an image to select it for insertion; to select multiple images, hold down the Ctrl
or Shift key and select the other items you want. Then click the Insert button to insert
the selected item or items in your document.
