Are you sitting down? Whether you buy PowerPoint by itself or get it as a
part of Microsoft Office, you also get access to an online collection of
thousands of clip art pictures that you can drop directly into your presentations.
Don’t overdo the pictures. One surefire way to guarantee an amateurish look
to your presentation is to load it down with three cheesy clip art pictures on
every slide . Judicious use is much more effective.
Dropping in a picture
The following steps explain how to insert picture art into your presentation:
1. Move to the slide on which you want to plaster the picture.
If you want the same picture to appear on every slide, move to Slide
2. On the Ribbon, choose Insert ➪ Online Pictures.
After a brief moment’s hesitation, the Insert Pictures dialog box appears,
as shown in Figure 11-1.

3. Type a keyword in the Search Office.com text box and then press Enter.
For example, to search for pictures of William Shakespeare, type
Shakespeare in the Search For text box and then press Enter.
PowerPoint searches through the Office.com picture collection to locate
the picture you’re looking for, and then it displays thumbnails of the
pictures it finds, as shown in Figure 11-2.
