Along with the news about our new themes, you may have noticed that the Microsoft Office 2010 Engineering blog also announced the ability to insert Clip Art in the PowerPoint Web App.
Many of you may be wondering why you should be excited by this. Perhaps the first thing that comes to mind when you hear “Clip Art” is this friendly little illustration you’ve known for more than a decade:
A word to the wise: there’s a lot more than you remember hiding in that gallery. We now feature high quality, royalty-free images, including selections from partners like iStockPhoto and Fotolia. There are even audio and video files to choose from, as well as the expected illustrations. The next time you need an image for your presentation, feel free to use one of these.
Adding Clip Art is just as simple as adding a picture. As you can see, there are two ways to add Clip Art to placeholders: the Ribbon and content buttons.
We hope you enjoy this feature on the web, and perhaps you’ll give it another look on the Office desktop applications, as well.

Why did you guys remove 'Collapse' and 'Stretch' animation effects in PowerPoint 2010 without leaving any substitution? I think it doesn't make sense to have less animation features in a newer version of PowerPoint than in a previous one. Do you have any plans to bring those animation effects back with upcoming service packs?
Hey,...this will be a great addition! Still wondering about the forthcoming and greatly anticipated '10 Player! Any idea when that is coming out? I can't test PPT10 without the new player so that others can view the nice additions.
I meant to say "viewer" in my previous post...anyone know when the '10 viewer will be out?
TDolce, Check out this post:
Thanks Chris,...I see there is quite some debate over whether not it is effective and the loop issue seems to come up in the conversation. I'll download it anyway and test it out for myself....thanks again!
if you are interested in powerpoint programmes , that is avery amazing programme www.crystalgraphics.com…/templates.backgrounds.main.asp
Crystal Graphics-No,..I'm not all interested in that programme. Thanks anyway. I've tried it before.
Sounds like clip art will give the user even more options for creating icons. Find an interesting piece of clip art, silhouette it, and maybe you're good to go! I'm excited about upgrading to PowerPoint 2010. www.thepowerpointstudio.com
Question for Microsoft: I know it's a little bit of a gray area, but my understanding has always been that MC ClipArt EULA prohibits commercial use, allowing only church, school and personal use. This post about ClipArt makes me wonder - does this imply that the "commercial marketing" restrictions are lifted?
