There’s a new Microsoft Office add-in that lets you search for and download online images into Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint (either 2007 or 2010 versions). The images come from Veer, a site that offers an online collection of professional photography and illustrations for purchase.
The cool thing about this add-in, which installs itself as new tab on Ribbon-enabled versions of Word and PowerPoint, is that it lets you download and test watermarked images in your documents before buying. You can move them around and even crop them to see how they look.
Once you have an image you like, purchasing can be done right from within your document. Same goes for searches, buying credits, and signing in and out of your Veer account.
The Veer Images add-in is a free download available here for Windows XP, Visa, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 computers.
