*Excel supports animated GIF files — sort of. If you insert an animated GIF file, the image will be animated
only if you save your workbook as a Web page and then view it in a Web browser.
Using the Microsoft Clip Organizer
The Clip Organizer is a shared program that is also accessible from other Microsoft
Office applications. In some versions of Office, this is known as the Clip Gallery.
Besides providing an easy way to locate and insert images, the Clip Organizer lets
you insert sound and video files. This tool also gives you direct access to
Microsoft’s Design Gallery Live on the Web.
You access the Clip Organizer by selecting the Insert
Clip Art command.
In Excel 2002, this displays the Insert Clip Art Task Pane. You can search for clip art
using the controls at the top of the Task Pane. Figure 6-7 shows the thumbnail images
resulting from a search for “car.” To insert an image into the active worksheet, just
click the thumbnail. For additional options, right-click the thumbnail image.

Want a Great Graphics File Viewer?
Many users are content to use the graphics file-viewing capabilities built into Windows.
But if you do a lot of work with graphics files, you owe it to yourself to get a “real”
fileviewing program.
Many graphics viewers are available, but one of the best products in its class is
IrfanView. It enables you to view just about any graphics file you throw at it, and has
features and options that will satisfy even hard-core graphics mavens. Best of all, it’s
free! To download a copy, visit www.irfanview.com .
