Clip Art Tips

Here are some tips for using clip art from HistoryImages.com. (This is just FYI stuff. Our only requirement is that you link to one of our Web sites on your Web site.)

Most of our clip pages, e.g. U.S. flag clip art, are galleries of "thumbnail" images. These small 100-by-100 pixel images are just there to make it easy for you to browse the clip art. To see a full-size image, click on the thumbnail.

These galleries also include the file size of image, e.g. 10KB, or 10 kilobytes. This is just FYI, to help you see at a glance how large the images are.

To use an image, you must first download it. In most Web browsers you can put your cursor over the image, right-click, and then select "Save-As" or "Save Picture As." You can then select where on your hard drive you want to put it.

To use an image on your Web site, you must then upload it from your local hard drive to your Web server. Most people put their images in a directory called "/images/".

It is important to copy an image to your own Web server -- not call the image from our HistoryImages.com server. This will not always work, it slows down your page, and it puts a burden on our server.

You may wish to edit an image before using it. Adobe Photoshop is a fantastic image editing tool. But this may be overkill if you just want to edit an image or two. You can find a more basic image editing tool at Shareware.com.

Please note that if you edit an image, we still require that you link to HistoryImages.com, Interesting.com, and/or one of our other Web sites. All our images are edited and marked in a unique, permanent manner.
