In addition to the asthetics, you'll want to consider the format the art is provided in. Raster, or pixelized images do not give as good of quality in print projects as vector, or eps images. If you want to change the colors to match your school colors, and if the images are going to appear large (on a banner or sign), be sure to look for vector eps images. You will need some type of vector based illustration program to change the colors. Coreldraw and Illustrator are the two most commonly used programs. If you don't have one of these programs, check with the Web site provider of the clipart. In many cases, they are glad to make color modifications on your behalf for a modest fee. Adding elements to clipart can also produce pleasing results. Let's say you have an image of a house that you think is boring. By adding a sunburst behind the house, you can produce a unique new look. The possibilities are endless. Just be aware that clipart can be as plain or exciting as you choose.

You don't have to argue it with him. Just explain. Tell him you're not crediting the clip art to him, so it won't sully his reputation (and if you have done your work right, the free graphics you've got are good enough that he shouldn't worry). Tell him you're just waiting and that you needed something in place. If he's really concerned about his art, it might speed him up; if he isn't it might slow him down. In either case, with your free clipart, you're set. You can let things run themselves and go join your buddy on the couch for potato chips and movies.

Many popular images such as cartoon characters, logos, comic book characters, pictures of movie stars and signers are copyrighted. This means you could get into legal trouble by using such images without paying for them or getting permission.

Kind of boring. Clipart makes scrapbooking easier and fun. The internet offers various original clipart graphics for any theme or occasion like holidays, music, religion, animals, people, sports, and more. Most often, the graphics will be cropped to fit any scrapbook pattern. A crafter can select from many designs that are usually grouped by themes to make searching easier. If the graphic is a vector image, it will be a snap to edit. Open the clipart image in your graphics editing program, select the area you don't want, and hit delete. It's that simple. However, bitmap images pose more of a challenge. You'll have to use the eraser tool and manually delete parts of the image. Or if you want to delete a section of solid color, you can use the magnetic lasso tool and press delete.
