The Clip Art task pane typically offers illustrations, drawings, sounds, and pictures but it also provides a small selection of video clips (including Animated GIFs), which can be inserted in your presentation.

Follow these steps to insert a video clip from the Microsoft Clip Art collection in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows:

  1. Open the presentation you want to use and select the slide where you want to insert the video clip.
  2. Access the Insert tab of the Ribbon, and within the Multimedia group, click the bottom part of the Video button to bring up a dropdown menu, as shown in Figure 1, below. Then, choose the Clip Art Video option.
  3. Select the Clip Art Video option

  8. Select the Clip Art video you want to use, and click the down arrow to the right of the clip to bring up the contextual menu, as shown in Figure 4, below. Select Insert from the menu that appears, as shown in Figure 4. Alternatively, select the clip and drag it to your slide.
  9. Insert the Clip video

  10. This action will place the Clip Art video into your PowerPoint slide, as shown in Figure 5, below. PowerPoint 2010 typically embeds such clips as part of the presentation.
  11. Resize it larger or smaller as required. Do note that clips that are originally smaller in size (as is the case with the clip, as shown in Figure 5) may pixelate if resized much larger.

The Feature List Layout comprises three sample PowerPoint presentations: one each to create a visual list for 4 features, 5 features, and 6 features. These work great when you have too much information to fit within one slide. This solution lets you use multiple slides, but the visual result is still that of one single slide!
