Chances are you have or will use your computer for some kind of graphic design at one time or another. It might be producing your own personalised letterhead or putting a party invitation together, or perhaps you are involved in more substantial projects like producing a regular newsletter or leaflets for a club you belong to. Whatever it is, clip art can help. Key Clipart 50,000
boasts 50,000 different clip art images, spanned across two CDs. Many of the clips are in the WMF format, which means they can be imported directly into Word and used to spice up documents there. In addition there are 6000 GIF images that you can use on your Web site.
The clips are organised into subject folders, but it's still necessary to work through the folders to find the images you want. An application called PowerAlbum organises clips from this CD and others into folders on your own hard drive, making it easy to return to images you want to use at any time. The images are of reasonable quality and span a range of different design styles. If money is tight, this could be the ideal place to find the images you need. --Sandra Vogel
