How to Insert Clipart in LibreOffice, OpenOffice Impress


This tutorial explains how to insert Clipart in LibreOffice/OpenOffice Impress and other modules.

Clipart is a type of image file, mostly vector images, which are pre-made to illustrate any subject/situation. When preparing any presentation for quick work, one tends to search in Google to find images and eventually insert them in Impress.

However, LibreOffice/OpenOffice itself brings a set of small graphics or ClipArts which you can quickly insert to make your presentation look professional for your work or school.

This is how you can do it.
