Doug Thomas, in a Blod Post, from Microsoft said: ‘The Clip Art and image library has closed shop." With the new Bing Image Search you can find more pictures then you could before, so there's a bonus! However, some of the images will be at a cost. It uses a coppyright systems that filters results based on the Creative Commons licensing system. You are able to do this on Google as well.

Clip Art closed with more then 140,000 images and photos.

You can use some of the images on Bing with the price tag of £Free! Some editing and modifying of the images might not be allowed.
