Free Clipart Resources! There are banks of FREE Clipart at Open Clip Art Library

Quote
The project's official name is Open Clip Art Library. One tangible is that the website is www.openclipart.org.

    "Drawing Together."


What is clip art?

Wikipedia says it best:

"Clip art, in the graphic arts, is the use of images either copied or physically cut (hence the term) from pre-existing printed works, either books that have entered the public domain, or books specifically published for such use (which, if they contain images that are not in the public domain, include a license fee in the cover price)."

The American Heritage Dictionary defines it as:

"Ready-made pieces of printed or computerized graphic art, such as illustrations, borders, and backgrounds, that can be electronically copied and used to decorate a document."



Why is this project Open?

The usage of the name is to convey connection to Open Source software and culture. Also, the word conveys the concept of the project lowering barriers for participation for submission of artwork, development on the project, use of the site and use of the clip art stored.

Clip art and photos

  WPClipart is a collection of high-quality public domain images specifically tailored for use in word processors and optimized for printing on home/small office inkjet printers. There are thousands of color graphic clips as well as illustrations, photographs and black and white line art. WPClipart started out as "Abiclipart" in 2003, a collection I amassed and edited for my kids to use with Abiword in junior high.

Nearly all are available in lossless, PNG format. The wpclipart server is also able to convert any image (up to 600 pixels in width or height) to a JPG. Larger images usually have a JPG version of the same size on the server. Transparent versions of PNG images are also being created, several thousand have been completed so far.

As of Monday, 01/25/2010, I have gathered, edited and/or created, indexed and uploaded 35,083 images.
