Open Clip Art Library

Yesterday I was looking for a photo to throw on one of my other blogs, but I did not want to get into trouble by taking just any picture I found off the net. After wasting some time googling for clip art I remembered to add the words "open source" and quickly found what I was looking for.

The Open Clip Art Library is just what it claims to be. It offers clip art that is free for any use. I was searching for a weight loss style graphic and quickly found this little clip of a bathroom scale. It suited my needs, it was quick to access and free to use. What more could I want.

To help this project you can submit clip art that you have made, report problems or contribute to the Wiki. People like me with little or no talent can simply spread the word and let others know this resource is out there. If you are looking for clip art and want to make sure you are using something that is not protected by a copyright try the Open Clip Art Library.

  1. oooh cool.
    I am slowly becoming a closet geek. I started a blog for my husband's company ( ) a year ago as a 'pcik me up' forhim during a rough time. His clients liked it. Which lead to the company blogging on its site which lead to me twittering and so on. But I am so clueless. I might have to come stalk you a bit.
    What is Linux? I hear people talk about it but I don't know what it is.
