    free gif clipart

    Where on the net can I find good free gif clipart?
    I have just been on the clipart merry-go-round where you go from one
    list to another - and never see clipart!!
    Woody's has been good in the past -
    I'm sure I'll get an answer/s to this one.

    Do you object to Microsoft clipart? It's fairly comprehensive.

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...

    Re: free gif clipart

    The problem with microsoft - which does have a good database of clipart -
    is that the clipart tends to be in windows metafiles. When I try to convert them
    to gif - so that they can be seen on the net - I have corrupted the files.
    So it is really gif files that I need.

    I used Google.com and go to the advance image search page. I then type in a subject and one will be surprised at what will be found.

    What do you use to convert to GIF? I've never had any problem with PSP (for example).

    Re: free gif clipart

    Great answer. Only problem is that when I narrow the search
    to .gif files and try to save it, my sw will only allow saving in jpeg!

    But I suppose I will have to get a workaround for that

    many thanks

    Thanks for answering so quickly, Mark.

    Can you give me a freebie alternative?

    You could try IrfanView, a freeware program that has received many good reviews.
