Search and Insert Online Images in Excel 2013

In Excel 2013 there is a new feature to add online pictures or images in your worksheet. Probably in an earlier version of Excel when you want to insert a picture in a worksheet, you insert the picture or image from the local computer drives. But when you want to get images from the internet, first you must download it from the internet onto your computer system and then, insert it into the worksheet.

But now, in Excel 2013 you are free from this lengthy work. Instead of searching images from online first then embedding it in the Excel sheet, Microsoft has provided a new way to insert online pictures and images while editing your Excel sheet.

You can search and insert online pictures from various types of sources such as from the free photo library office.com, and you can also search for a Bing Image and you can also browse a skydrive folder to insert the picture into the worksheet.
