How to insert clipart in Outlook?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2024-07-24

While older versions of Microsoft Office included a clip art library across applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, modern versions, including Outlook, no longer have a dedicated Clip Art button. Instead, you can enhance your emails by using online pictures. This guide will show you how to easily search for and insert online images into your email messages in Microsoft Outlook, adding visual interest and engagement to your communications.

There is no Clip Art button in Microsoft Outlook. In Microsoft Outlook, the Online Pictures button takes the place of the Clip Art button, which enables you to find and insert pictures from a variety of online sources.

Step 1: In the Message window of Outlook, please click the Online Pictures button in the Illustrations group on the Insert tab.


Step 2: Then an Insert Pictures dialog pops up, type keywords you want to search in the Clip Art box, and then press the Enter key.


Step 3: After finishing searching the Clip Arts, select your favorite one and then click the Insert button.

Please help. All the instructions are for installing. I had clip art in outlook for several years and the icon is still there. A couple of months ago, it just stopped responding no matter what category I select. I love the clip art and want it back. Can anyone help?

[quote]How do you add clip art to a message that is not a New Email message?By Carlene Wade[/quote] We get queries into our graphics business, but in reply there is no INSERT CLIP ART or PHOTO. and no modification for the top bar to have those. Why? How other than collecting hundreds of graphics can we respond with graphics from smiley to our guidelines without extra work? New mail is not practical for a reply.

I purchased Office 2016 and find that I can't access clip art in either Word or Outlook. I need directions on how to do that. Please send directions to my email box. Thank you.

1. Click on “New Email” 2. Address your email. (If doing a try-out, address it to yourself). 3. Click “insert” (where it says “File”, “Message” “Insert” “Options” “Format” etc.) 4. From the icons that appear, click “Online Pictures”. 5. A box will appear, headed “Insert Pictures”. 6. Click the “Bing Image Search” icon. 7. 50 or 60 pictures will appear if you scroll down. 8. If, for instance you want some clipart featuring cats, then click on the image named “Cats”. 9. Several pictures of cats will appear. 10. Your selection will be highlighted in a square. 11. Click “Insert” at the foot of the images and your selection will appear in your email. 12. You can either email the image or copy & paste it to another location.

At first I found the "Illustrations" & "Online Pictures" to be faded, and nothing happened when clicking on the icon. As soon as I clicked the body of the intended email, the words brightened up and then everything worked perfectly.
