This week, Microsoft introduced lots of new premium content for Office 365 Insiders on the fast ring, which will eventually come to all subscribers.
As part of Office for Windows Desktop version 2004 (Build 12730.20024), Microsoft has added access to over 8,000 royalty-free images and icons, a small selection of which you can see in the image above. To access it, simply select Insert > Images > Stock Images, then choose between Stock Images, Cutout People, Icons or Stickers for the type of content to browse. It is then possible to filter the library using keyword searches.
Display on the Office Insider Blog, Program Managers Craig Ellis and Aimee Leong, said, “We’re thrilled to announce a new feature that will take your spreadsheets, presentations, emails and documents to a new level with premium creative content… Office 365 subscribers can now easily add high-quality images, stickers, and icons to their personal or work files. Liven up your content in Excel, Word, Outlook and PowerPoint by choosing from over 8,000 royalty-free images and icons that best suit your mood and the information you want to share.”

Suggestions for using the abundance of new content include adding royalty-free images to a PowerPoint presentation or Word document, adding stickers to your Outlook emails, or inserting some of the new icons in your Excel reports. The other good news is that this is just the beginning. Microsoft promises to update the library regularly and “add new categories in the coming months.”
