clip art

Clip art, frequently used in desktop publishing before the arrival of the Web, is "canned" artwork designed for use in publications or Web pages by artists or non-artists . The use of clip art can save artists time and make art both possible and economical for non-artists. Clip art includes both subject-related illustrations and visual elements such as horizontal lines, bullets, and text separators.

You can purchase clip art on specialized subjects from Adobe, Corel, and many smaller companies. You can purchase clip art and stock photography at Photodisc. You can also find much useful clip art for free personal use at many Web sites. For use on a commercial page, make sure you understand any restrictions. Some artwork requires written permission for use or the payment of a fee.

Many clip art sites now include animated GIF s.
