How to Insert Clipart in MS Word
Welcome to a free tutorial brought to you by WordLearningZone.com. I'm your instructor, Richard Rost. In this video I'm going to show you how to insert clipart into your Word documents. You're in a Microsoft Word, I'm using Word 2003 and I've got a document all prepared here. I want to insert some word clipart into my document.
So first I'm going to click where I want the clipart to go. Let’s say right up here on the top. I'm going to click on insert, picture and then I have some options over here. There is clipart. There is From File which means if you have a file in your hard drive, perhaps someone sent it to you in an email and you save it. If you want to insert that you can use From File. There is AutoShapes and WordArt and a bunch of other stuff but I want to pick clipart.
I'm going to use some of the words built in clipart. The clipart pane pops up over here on the right. And if you have an idea what you're looking for you can just type it in into a little search. The word comes with tons of clipart and chances are what you're looking for might be in here. So let’s say I'm looking for a bunny rabbit. I’ll type in bunny and I’ll hit go and Word will search for it and the bunnies in my clipart collections and you scroll down over here and take a look through what it has found. There is a whole bunch of bunnies in here.
So let’s go to the top here and I’ll pick one of these bunnies. I’ll click this little down arrow here and I’ll select insert. Now what that did is it inserted the clipart here inside my document. Now when that happened you should see the picture toolbar pop-up here. It might be floating in the middle of your document or it might even be docked up here in your toolbar. But notice how the text over here is pushed away by my little bunny picture. Well if you want the text to kind of wrap around it, pick this button right here. This is text wrapping and choose something else like square in line with text as the effect that we have right now. If you pick square you’ll see that the text wraps nicely around the bunny. Right and as I continue to type here, only this is copy and paste in text. You’ll see the text floats nicely around that little bunny rabbit.
Now that is just the basics of inserting clipart in your documents. There is tons more to do with the clipart and the picture toolbar. There is the clipart organizer where you can go through and browse all the different types of clipart in the system. And I covered graphics including inserting clipart and Word art and AutoShapes and graphics files you may have on your computer. I cover all that in my Microsoft Word 102 tutorial and you can find out more information about my Word 102 tutorial on my website at WordLearningZone.com.
