How can I use Microsoft Clip Art in Google Email? jillv 4/10/10 8:42 PM
Whenever I try to insert Microsoft Clip Art into my Gmail I can acess it from the icon and insert it, but if I haven't finished the letter and continue typing after I have inserted the clip art it disappears.
Can anybody help me with this issue.
I am using Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 7 and My antivirus is McAfee
Thank you

You cannot just  insert anything in an e-mail!!
You have to have the clipart in a form that can be embedded, and use the Labs experiment "Inserting Images" to add the Image insert button onto your formatting bar.
Then you can click on that new button and provide the filename and location of your chosen item.

I want to send e-mails with clip art in them (not as an attachment) and since I am not a computer genius I don't understand what JohnW2 means?  Where can I find Google instructions to insert clip art into the body of an e-mail?

Since you aren't that computer genius, might I suggest that the easiest solution would be for you to use an e-mail client program (such as OE or Thunderbird) to manage your mailbox and all its creative aspects. Then you won't have to understand what you can and cannot do in a webmail application.

JohnW2, you might be a top contributor but your know it all attitude is not very helpful!  I'm no genius but from the little information you did provide, my only question is do I need to buy a clip art disc or are they available for free on the net?

@Ragdoll mama - no, I'm not a "know-it-all" and try not to imply that, and am sorry if that's the way it came across. However, this is a Help forum for users of Google's e-mail system, rather than a Help desk for any sort of computer problems you might have.
There is an immense amount of clipart available - for free - on the internet (use http://www.clipart.co.uk/index.shtml as a starting point) and there are many discs of more commercial Clipart available for various subjects. In most instances they're in GIF format, and for that you can use the "Inserting Images" Lab experiment to facilitate insertion in ordinary e-mail.

The Labs Experiment feature for inserting images works like a snap!  I wanted to reply to an e-mail with just an image, a smiley face, but not the one offered as an emoticon-- I needed a larger one to communicate my message appropriately.  I grabbed one off from a Google images search, saved it to my picture folder and uploaded directly to my e-mail message from that folder.  I could have uploaded the image directly from its website as well.

When you pull up your gmail, click Settings (upper right-hand area)--it will take you to the Settings page where the Labs "tab" sits along with other Settings features.  Once in Labs, you'll need to scroll down a bit to find the Insert Images application, when found, simply tick the Enable setting.

Cheers!!
