OpenOffice.org Tips and Tricks Part I - page 2
A Little Different and Very GoodIn addition to templates, OpenOffice.org out-of-the-box lacks clip art and stock photos. However, you still have a few ways to get media so you can spruce up your documents and presentations. For a clip art catalog that integrates right into OpenOffice.org, you can download the OxygenOffice Extras - Gallery extension. It includes a variety of clip art images; from Animals to Weather and many in between. You can install it using the Extension Manager, just like discussed earlier when adding more templates. Then to access the media, click the Gallery button on the OpenOffice.org toolbar as shown in Figure 1.
Tip: If you download extensions as .zip files, you probably need to rename the file to change the file extension to .oxt.
Don't forget about Microsoft's clip art and media. If you have a valid license to a Microsoft Office suite or program or a product that includes Microsoft Clip Gallery or Organizer, you can use Microsoft's media that's loaded on your PC or download content from the Office Online site. When you have the Microsoft Clip Organizer open, select the media you want to use with OpenOffice.org, click the down arrow on the left of the thumbnail, and select Copy. Then paste the media in an OpenOffice.org application.
