75Whether you want to make a PowerPoint presentation more interesting, add some professional touches to a report, or even spruce up a boring spreadsheet, you can break up all of those numbers and text with some content enhancing clip-art.

There are thousands of clip-art sites on the internet where you can find what you need. Most of them charge $1 to $10 per image. In most cases, you don’t need to pay for clip-art.  Google has an amazing site where you can download almost anything imaginable for free. And it’s really quick and easy!

Simply go to https://www.google.com/imghp or fire up Google and then click on “images” at the top of the screen. Type in what you want, and presto! Go ahead and give it a try.

  • Type “price of gold 2013 chart” without the quotes, into the search box and press enter. Click on one of the pictures to see it a little larger. Then right-click on the picture and select “save as” to save it to your computer.
  • Try typing “protractor”
  • Try typing “protractor blue”
  • Once the pictures are saved on your computer, go into your word processor, spreadsheet, or website, and import the saved file into your document.

There are tons of fancy options that help you sift through millions of photos and quickly find just the one you want. To learn about them, go to the Google Images help page:
