Other than inserting pictures from Office.com Clip Art, you can also opt for the Bing option -- which provides Creative Common pictures. The Bing option shows picture search result directly from the Bing site.

Stop Press: Microsoft has removed the Office.com Clip Art option – look at our Alternatives for Office Clip Art Gallery page to find some alternatives.

Tip: Want to search only for photographs? Or perhaps you want to search only for illustration type drawings? It's easy with this undocumented tip! Just add the keywords photo or drawing after your search term(s) to limit your searches to photographs or illustrations respectively.

Figure 8 shows results of a search for the keywords, Apple photo, whereas Figure 9 shows results of a search for the keywords, Apple drawing.
