    Office Clip Art now powered by Bing Images

    Starting today, customers searching for Online Pictures in Office desktop products worldwide will view and download royalty-free images curated through Bing Images. The Clip Art and image library has closed shop. Usage of Office’s image library has been declining year-to-year as customers rely more on search engines.

    Bing Image Search has higher quality images that are more up-to-date. For example, searching for “cellphone” gives more variety and modern looking phones instead of the old-school bricks from Clip Art. Also, Bing uses a copyright filter based on the Creative Commons licensing system. These are images you can use, share, or modify for either personal or commercial use (settings can be switched to Show all web results to view more images).

    Give it a try. In programs like Word 2013, Outlook 2013 or PowerPoint 2013, Click Insert>Online Pictures to use the Bing Image Search. In Office 2010 and Office 2007 programs, go to Insert>Clip Art and search for pictures in the menu.

    Or read What happened to the Clip Art site for complete instructions.

    Aren't clip arts a novelty of the past? Who in the world uses clip-art anyways? The last time I'd used any clip art or inserted any images into my documents was in grade 8!
