Have you noticed that there are two different “insert image” buttons in Office 2013? The first is the standard “pictures” option which allows you to browse your local storage for an image. The other is “online pictures” which gives you access to Office.com clip art, SkyDrive, and Bing image search. What’s cooler is the ability to connect this to both your Flickr and Facebook accounts giving you the ability to directly browse and import images from those accounts into your Office document. You can find the “Online Images” button under the insert tab.
