LONDON, October 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Fotolia, LLC is releasing a new add-in ribbon for Microsoft Word 2007 and Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 that gives customers easy access to an enormous library of easy-to-search, high-resolution images and vectors. The Fotolia ribbon provides instant image solutions to complement personal and professional projects. The downloadable ribbon is available on 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 simple 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.

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 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.

Fotolia is making huge strides in the online photography and image industry. Founded in 2005 in New York City, the company quickly expanded to 12 countries and represents portfolios of some of the most respected agencies and artists. A commitment to providing high-quality, affordable images expanded the relationship with Microsoft, which offers a free collection of Fotolia images and illustrations to Microsoft Office customers through Microsoft Office 2007.

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.

Purchasing images from Fotolia through Microsoft Word 2007 and Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 using the add-in is easy: select the size of the image or graphic and a standard or extended license option. Only Fotolia offers standard and extended licensing with every image purchase, and the licenses are free of seat restrictions and run limits.

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.
