The plugin providers users access to iStockPhoto images from within PowerPoint and Word, where they can select, preview, purchase and insert images directly into their documents. Users will need an iStock account and buy credits to purchase images, but those with accounts can make purchases using their existing credits without leaving the running PowerPoint or Word program.
"iStockphoto has been a valued image provider on the Microsoft Office web site for several years," said Sharon Meramore, the downloadable content manager for the Office website. "We're excited that iStock now exposes its whole collection through the user interface of Word and PowerPoint, making it easier and faster for our customers to create more compelling documents."
