Microsoft Retires Clip Art, Replaces it with Bing Images
If you ever worked on power point and word, this might has professional emotional good bye moment. A word document or a presentation was never complete without a clip art, it just gave those documents a life!
In a recent post, Microsoft has confirmed that clip has been retired and is being replaced with Bing Images.
Bing provides a larger variety of more up-to-date pictures than the old Clip Art site. Bing also makes it easy for you to choose pictures you’re legally authorized to use as it uses a copyright filter based on the Creative Commons license system. These are images you can use, share, or modify for either personal or commercial use.
To find pictures you’re free to use:
- Go to Bing.com and click Images.
- In the Search box, enter what you’re looking for.TIP If you’re looking specifically for clip art pictures, type “clip art” as part of your search. For example,dog clip art or border clip art.
- Click or tap the License drop down menu, and pick the licensing option you want.
TIP To better understand the options you can filter by, see Filter images by license type.
