What Kind of Use Clip Art Can I Use in My PowerPoint 2007 Slides

PowerPoint comes with thousands of pictures, sound clips, and motion clips that you can pop directly into your PowerPoint presentations. PowerPoint lets you access clip art through a special Clip Art task pane that lets you search for clip art by keyword. The Clip Art task pane makes it easy to find just the right picture to embellish your presentation.

PowerPoint works with almost all the available picture formats.

Bitmap pictures are most often used for photographs, icons and other buttons used on Web pages. You can create your own bitmap pictures with a scanner, a digital camera, or a picture-drawing program such as Adobe Photoshop. You can even create crude bitmap pictures with Microsoft Paint, which is the free painting program that comes with Windows.

Use JPEG format images for photographs that you want to include in PowerPoint presentations because JPEG’s built-in compression saves hard drive space.

PowerPoint works with the following bitmap picture file formats:

  • BMP

  • GIF

  • JPEG

  • PCD

  • PCT

  • PCX

  • PNG

  • TGA

  • TIFF

Besides bitmap pictures, you can also use vector drawing with PowerPoint. PowerPoint supports all these popular vector drawing formats:

  • CDR

  • CGM

  • DRW

  • EMF

  • EPS

  • WMF

  • WPG
