Default Anywhere to still find Microsoft clipart?

As a technical writer I much prefer vector images to raster images in my documents. For me the MS clipart gallery was an excellent resource.

Now that MS has taken it down, does anyone know if they've hidden it somewhere that's accessible if you just know where to look? I'd happily download the entire gallery if possible, so I'd be able to access it for later use.

TIA

Do you know the web address of the MS clipart site?

Don't know where it went, but you could try https://openclipart.org instead. It is all vector based stuff.

Hundreds of professional clip art images that I relied heavily on are now no longer available.
- I find it quite frustrating that MS's answer is "just go do a search for Clip Art on Bing"

even much of the 3rd party clip-art has gone,
but- others have linked to them:
https://openclipart.org/
- from Open Office.

You still can get some here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/im...qu=nature&ex=1, type the search term you need.

According to this source from Microsoft:

"The Clip Organizer feature is removed in Office 2013. This feature was previously available in three modes: a stand-alone application in the Office suite, Insert Clip Art task pane, and through a dialog box for inserting picture bullets, horizontal lines, and so on."

"Office.com is no longer robust enough to provide the breadth and variety of media content to meet the needs of Office users. Users are increasingly storing their own images/videos online and also going to search engines or other Internet sites to find media content to include in their Office documents. In addition, enterprise users expect to use media content that is stored in their company’s SharePoint Server site(s). The new Insert Media feature in Office 2013 is intended to streamline finding and using media content by making the content available directly within the client experience. The Clip Organizer client does not easily scale out to accommodate a growing set of online media sources. Therefore, to enable this richer set of online media, we are implementing a simpler and lighter-weight client."
