Inserting Pictures and Clip Art
Pictures are photos and Clip Arts resemble cartoon drawings. Both are very usefuly to draw attention when placed inside a document.
"A picture is worth a thousand words."
When to Use
If a graphic is needed in a Word doc, always opt for a picture because it is very professional. Occassionaly, a lighter mood is appropriate, and then you would use a Clip Art.
Icons are only available to Office 365 subscribers on Windows, Android, or Windows Mobile.
Icons are from a standard library of Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) files that you can easily find on the Illustrations tab of the ribbon. They retain their clarity regardless of their size (they don't get fuzzy.)
You can change the Color of the icons (default is black.)
