Using the Clip Gallery

Clip art—reusable drawings, photos, and the like—derives its name from the not-so-distant past, when designers actually clipped images from a book and pasted them into documents. The electronic versions of these tools are easier to use, but the effect is the same: to enliven an informal document. Much depends on the audience you want to reach and the effect you want to achieve.

A really dynamite piece of clip art can tell a story worth a thousand words. A really bad piece of clip art hinders communication, leaving people scratching their heads about the possible obtuse meaning of it all.
