Importing Clip Art from the Web

Importing images from the Web is one way to enhance your clip art collection. The following instructions explain how to import clip art from the Web into the Microsoft Clip Organizer. Once it is saved, this clip art can be accessed and used at any time from the Microsoft Clip Organizer. You may also insert clip art from the server, which is the network your computer is linked to, and which may contain additional clip art files that can only be accessed through the network. This is different from importing clip art from the Web.
