To insert a clipart

Click on Insert, clipart and this is what you will see on the right

In the Search text box, delete the word
in there and type in the what kind of
picture you are looking for i.e.

Then click Search

search for the image you are looking for.

eventually you should then see some

you want and click on it. This will put the

what you are looking for, click on Modify at
the bottom and you will be able to start your

                            Your picture will have black boxes around it
                            once you click on it. Now you need to click
                            on the square with the dog in your new
                            picture toolbar and click on the word
                            square.


                           Once you have done this, the boxes will
                           change to circles. As you move your mouse
                           onto your picture, the pointer will change
                           to a cross. This means that you can click
                           and drag the image to where ever you
                           want to place it and let go. As you are
                           dragging, the picture does not move but a
                           box with a dotted line will follow your
mouse instead. This is your picture and wherever the dotted line
is, your picture will go if you let go of your mouse button.

As you move your mouse into the corner of the picture, the
pointer will change to a double arrow. This means that you can re-
size the picture if you hold your mouse button down. Again, the
picture itself will not get bugger but a dotted line box will appear
and get bigger or smaller when you move your mouse and your
picture will take on the size of the dotted line box as soon as you
let go of the mouse button.
