Clip Art Collections

I'm hooked... I need more...

OK, my dear BF bought me the Art Eplosion 250,000 clip art set a while ago. I've used it more times than I can count (or course always editing the graphics for originality before using online!), but I'd like to get another collection for variety's sake... nothing I hate more than seeing the same stock photos/clip art used all over the place.

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?

Hemerra Photo Objects has some nice stuff in it. They export to .png as well as tiff and bmp and gif and jpg.

I got the Hemera, there is an awful lot in it that isn't usable..like a lot of sports stuff (not my thing).

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.

> there is an awful lot in it that isn't usable

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...

OK, so far I've got a recommendation for PhotoObjects, and I'm already using Art Explosion...

Does anyone have another good clip-art collection? I promise I edit all my clip-art images enough that they won't look like yours if you give me your secret...

IMSI Master Clips - has LOTS of good stuff, all different file formats. Also, sometimes they run rebates. The one I have has 28 CDs in the set.

I found this to be useful and at 29.95/year you don't need to find many useable images to make it worthwhile.

I bought the 25,000 Hemerra photo objects. My
brother unistalled the disk on me and now I have no serial #. I paid for it with my credit card on
line. How do I go about getting the serial # again?

If you registered the product, you should be able to contact the manufacturer about the serial #. Or, you can contact them and hope they keep good records of their online sales.

Otherwise, I don't know what else you could do.

You could try this: [artoday.com...]
We've used this for a few years now and each year they seem to add more content. There are fonts, web graphics, clip art, animation, stock photos and more. A full year is kinda pricey unless you use it all the time, I think it's about $150. You can get less time if you want.
