I was thinking about the Art Explosion 750,000 set, but I'm afraid I'd end up with the same (relatively few) good gfx I already have in the 250,000 set, fluffed out with a bunch of garbage gfx. I'm not looking for a "web graphics" set... those are always stuffed to the gills with cheesy Ge*cities style dingbats and divider bars, and the image resolution is too low to do extensive editing on.
I'd like a good, fairly large, print oriented clip art collection, with fairly high standards of quality for the images they include. Any ideas?
Imsi has some good stuff, and what comes with Corel Draw is terrific (I got that at Academic price, good deal).
Actually, Illustrator was the same price, and the interface would have been much easier, but Draw does layout also - supposed to be all in one. Great photos and clipart.
That's a problem I've found with almost all stock image collections... photography or clipart. You get 10% great images, 20% ho-hum-but-useable-with-extensive-editing images, and 70% stuff you'll never use.
That's why I like to go for the really huge collections, or the multi-CD collections where you can buy individual CDs by theme. You can either narrow down the garbage (with option #2) or get so much stuf a lot of it *has* to be useable (with option #1).
I've gotten a lot of decent clip-art bundled with applications, but I don't want to have to buy new programs just to get more images...
