Is the clip art gallery as we used to know it no longer

available to us? Why do we have to go "Online" to search

for clipart? It used to be a whole lot easier!!! What

Happened? Am I missing something?

    • If the Clip Gallery is still on your computer you can use it. Insert, object, scroll

      down to Microsoft Clip Gallery. You can also use it as a standalone, create a

      shortcut on your desktop, you won't be able to insert from it, but you can drag and

      drop. It is in a folder similar to this:

      "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Artgalry\ The program icon is CAG.

    • Thanks for your reply, however, I do not have a Artgalry

      folder anywhere on my system. Can I install it from the

      original CD? What's next?

      Thanks,

      Bob

    • Mary - We're having the same problem as Bob. No Artgalry file under "Microsoft Shared." We installed Office 2003 on 100+ computers at our new high school over the summer. Now the teachers are finding very little clip art, no art borders in Word, and the Publisher wizards don't work. We're thinking about ditching Office 2003 and going back to Office XP, unless we can find a solution that can be pushed out over the network. Any ideas?

    • If you have the media disk from Office XP, you can use the setup on the disk and

      install the clipart. Office XP uses the same Clip Organizer as 2003. The Clip Gallery

      was discontinued, it was last used in Office 2000 products, if you never had the Clip

      Gallery it won't be present on your computers.

      You might open the Organizer, file, click "add clips to Organizer" click

      automatically, this will find all the images on your system.
