There are two types of Internet users out there. Those that despise anything that has to do with clip art, animated gifs or funny PowerPoint presentations, and the ones who love them and cannot get enough. If you are of the latter kind you might also like the royalty free clip art gallery which comes in the two packages animals and holidays for Windows and Linux.
The clip art was taken directly from the online clip art search engine wpclipart which contains dozens of categories including the downloadable holiday and animals category. The two clip art galleries that come as packages can be downloaded to the computer. They have a size of 50 and 170 Megabytes. The download page provides additional downloads, one of them the full clip art collection which totals more than 650 Megabytes and the clip art viewer.
The collections come with a clip art viewer that can be used to browse through the clip arts. This is not necessary though because the clip art is also viewable in the default photo viewer.
The clip art gallery viewer wpClipper is pretty easy to use and comes with a few basic image editing options like rotating images or applying filters to them. Clip art can be copied to the clipboard easily to add it to another application
The royalty free clip arts can be easily integrated into Office applications like Open Office or Microsoft Office. If you like clip art this is a great download. If you do not you probably stopped reading after the first paragraph anyway.
Update: You can download a web installer, which provides you with options as to which clipart packages to download to your computer, or a full installation which currently has a size of 1.2 Gigabytes in total. That's a lot of clip art that is free of any copyright issues.Advertisement
