Although it is easy to insert pictures from the Clip Art task pane, it is still a good idea to save the pictures you use locally so that you can use them anytime you want. This is important because the same picture may not show up again in the future since nowadays the pictures you retrieve via a search are those that are on web sites, and they use Bing’s search technology. Such searches are dynamic, and results can vary, even after a few hours! So it is important that you save a picture you want to use often locally, in case you want to use it in the future.

If you already have pictures that you want to add to your slides, you can just insert them quite easily. However, many times we just have an idea of the type of picture we want to insert, but we still do not have the actual pictures! And that’s when PowerPoint’s Clip Art task pane can help you. Not only does it allow you to search and insert pictures and illustrations, but it also provides videos and sounds. All of these can easily be inserted into your presentation.
