News Flash: Clip Art in Office Now Powered by Bing Images!


We’ve all heard the saying “A picture’s worth a thousand words.”

Now, that picture will be even better as starting today, Bing Images will power Online Pictures in Office desktop products worldwide. This means when you search for an image, you’ll be able to view and download royalty-free images curated through Bing Images! You and your students will get much more relevant images to complement the presentations and reports you create in Office. As the Office 365 Team explains:

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).

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.

Teachers– how do you use images to complement your lesson plans?
