    Clip Art

    Clip Art is ready-to-use artwork that can be used in web pages or other publications (note: legal terms and conditions may apply to how particular clip art graphics are used or distributed).

    Clip Art can be either vector or bitmaps, and includes both illustrations and such as horizontal lines, bullets and textual elements.
    • If publishing web online, Clip Art does not need to be very high resolution as most screen displays are not high resolution.

    • If publishing printed materials, high resolution Clip Art is generally required, because of the higher resolutions that are typical in printing. Using low resolution Clip Art with printed materials, can result in visible jaggies.
    In a moment, I will show you some example Clip Art graphics, but please note: You do NOT have permission to save or download these graphics. We can use these Clip Arts on our web pages, only because we have purchased these Clip Art packages. If you want to use Clip Arts from these packages, you must purchase your own copy of the package.

    Here are some example bitmap Clip Art graphics from Hemera's Photo-Objects 50,000 Premium Image Collection (in my opinion, an excellent package for web designers - as the name implies, this package contains a variety of photo objects). To save screen space in this demo, I am displaying these images at about 1/9th of the original size that they are in the package.

     
     

    Below are some example Clip Art graphics from Broderbund ClickArt 40,000 (which I have). I don't have a link for this exact package, but I suspect that you'll find similar sorts of items in Broderbund's other packages: Anyway, these particular clip arts all started out as vector clip art (though the package does include bitmap clip art too) in WMF format, but I've converted them to PNGs (at about one quarter of the original size) so that you can see them on this web page.

    (Again: You do NOT have permission to save or download these graphics. If you want to use Clip Arts from these packages, you must purchase your own copy of the package.)


    Another clipart package that I've found is really good value is Nova Development's Art Explosion 800,000. When I bought this, it came with 34 CD-ROMs (I understand new version is 5 DVDs?), and included tons of bitmap and vector clip art, and all sorts of other stuff too. I won't say that I found every image is useful - I thought the the quality and usefulness of the images was somewhat variable - but I did find enough good stuff in there for it to be worth my while, and good value for money for me. One weakness of this package is there is no keyword search, however, the contents are extremely well organised, so finding stuff was actually pretty easy. My copy of the software came with a big fat printed book of all the clip arts (which was included in the box), and I found very useful - but judging by the user reviews posted on Amazon.com, I get the impression that this book may not be included with the product any more.
