MS-Word is not only a word processing software because people can use it as a PDF editor or picture editor to cropping, zooming in or out adding text on it and more like these. So, images are a great way to liven up a document, and Word offers a few methods to insert them. There are built-in clip art images for just about every topic, so you may be able to find a perfect clip art image for your document. If you have a more specific image in mind, you can insert a picture from a file.
In this lesson, you will learn how to search for and insert an image from a file.
When you would like to insert a picture from your PC or Network connected PCs, you can use this tab to insert a new picture or object.

The bad news about online images is: there’s no more clip art. Microsoft has discontinued their clip art repository, and clip art is no longer available in Office products. The good news is that you can search the entire Internet for pictures via Bing image search without leaving Word. The search results include only images that are licensed by Creative Commons, meaning you can use them without having to pay a fee.
Not all Creative Commons licensed images are free for every usage. Some are free only for non-commercial use, for example. Check a picture’s source and license before you commit to using it in a publication.
