#2. Free Clip Art

Free Clip Art Printable (** for premium members only)

Although plenty of it exists, finding free clip art can be a frustrating experience because so many clip art sites simply point to other sites, which in turn send you off to yet more sites. Today’s picks, however, are guaranteed to deliver. When using them, be sure to remember the two golden rules of free clip art. 1) Do not steal bandwidth by pointing to images on other people’s sites. Upload all images to your own web server. 2) Read and obey the terms of use for each site. Some sites may grant you unlimited use, but most include restrictions.

Bing: Image Search
Bing Image Search has a feature where you can search for images by license, but in order to even see the drop down License selector menu, you need to do an image search. So this page is a search for the keyword “toys.” Now, click on License and select Public Domain. Voilà! There is however one more necessary step. Before grabbing any of these images, you still need to visit the publisher’s website and verify the terms of the using their art, which might involve emailing the webmaster and asking.

Discovery School: Clip Art Gallery
With original art in both color and black and white, and topics geared especially for students and teachers, Discovery School Clipart Gallery is sure to please. Although there is no search function, the collection of several hundred illustrations is organized into nineteen topics and is easy to peruse. If you’re looking for art to spruce up a web page, don’t miss the animations. For tips on using clip art with Word or on a website, follow the How To Use Clip Art link near the bottom of the page.

Created by a college student in 1996, the “morgueFile contains photographs freely contributed by many artists to be used in creative projects by visitors to the site. To acknowledge the artist’s accomplishments, we ask that you credit the photographer when possible.” Although these images are free, they are not in the public domain, so be sure to read the complete license for each photo.
