You can easily make your own greeting cards, educational illustrations, and presentations with the use of clip art. Clip art is a loose term for any illustration that’s not stock photography, but designed for distribution or sale. In modern times many examples of clip art are stolen, but advertised free on internet websites. This clip art is often copyrighted and could get you into legal trouble if you’re using the image as a business logo or making a profit from it.
Buying clip art software gives you the choice of up to a million different images, and the ability to design your own. When you buy the software you own it and you can do what you want with it without risking legal issues. There are several programs that include image search engines and animated images. You can gain access to royalty-free images in every genre with art software programs. Thousands of unique fonts and pictures available on a single program saves you time and money.
