To add online pictures or clip art to your PowerPoint slide (file):
- Click the slide that you want to add the Clipart to.
- On the Insert tab, in the Images group, click Online Pictures.
- A dialog window will open to search Bing for Clipart.
You can repeat the above process to put more clip art on the same PowerPoint slide, but you may have to resize and/or move the previous image(s). To resize clip art, select the clip art you've inserted in the document. To increase or decrease the size in one or more directions, drag a sizing handle away from or toward the center, while you do one of the following:
- To keep the center of an object in the same location, press and hold CTRL while you drag the sizing handle.
- To maintain the object's proportions, press and hold SHIFT while you drag the sizing handle.
- To both maintain the object's proportions and keep its center in the same location, press and hold both CTRL and SHIFT while you drag the sizing handle.
