Adding Clip Art to MS Office 08 for Mac OS
Clip art comes in handy when you're working on documents on MS Word or Powerpoint. They're great for adding visual elements to your presentations or newsletters. Although Microsoft Office 2008 comes with a small clip art library pre-installed in your computer, chances are, you will need different clip art that are not available on your computer at some stage.
The good news is that you can easily access a huge library of clip art on the Microsoft Office site. Clip art and other media categories available include: Abstract, Academic, Agriculture, Animals, Arts, Astrology, Backgrounds, Black & White, Buildings, Business, Cartoons, Character Collections, Colorful, Communications, Concepts, Decorative Elements, Emotions, Fantasy, Flags, Food, Government, Healthcare, Household, Industry, Leisure, Maps, Nature, Occupations, Pastel, People, Personal Appearance, Plants, Realistic, Religion, Sciences, Seasons, Signs, Sites, Special Occasions, Sports, Symbols, Technology, Tools, Transportation, Travel, Weather, and Web Elements.
The best part: They're all free for you to download and add to your own library at any time.
