Fotolia LLC, is releasing a new add-in ribbon for Microsoft Word 2007 and Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 that gives user access to the companies’ high-resolution images and vectors.
The downloadable ribbon is available here and features controls that allow users to login, view accounts and search Fotolia’s library of over 7-million high-resolution files without leaving their Microsoft Office document.
Hovering over search results lets users preview the image. A double click inserts a free comp of the image into the document, allowing customers to try before they buy. Once members see a photograph, vector or illustration they are interested in, they can purchase it while still in their document by selecting download and the appropriate size and license. Once the image is downloaded into the user’s document, users are free to use the Fotolia file with no limit on time, copies or geographical placements. Images on Fotolia are truly royalty-free.
“Connecting Fotolia’s online image library directly to Word and PowerPoint is a great productivity win for our customers,” said Rob Ashby, Group Manager for Office.com. “The add-in’s use of the ribbon makes finding and using the right images fast and easy, without customers having to leave their work.”
“Using the ribbon enabled Fotolia to increase the services we offer to over 1.3 million members by creating an easy, integrated experience,” says Garth Johnson, Fotolia Executive Vice President, North America. “Now, Microsoft Word 2007 and Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 users have instant in-document access to Fotolia’s library of over 7-million royalty-free images and the best licensing options in the business.”
