For those looking for a little free clipart, you’ll definitely enjoy openclipart.org – especially as it’s free from both cost and copyright.
But, wait. I hear what you’re saying, What if you don’t have Photoshop to edit the images to suit your needs? Ah, yes. Then there’s The Gimp. The Gimp is both free and open source. I’ve been using The Gimp for longer than I can remember and it’s one of my first downloads whenever I ‘set up home’ on a new computer (whether that’s been on Linux, a PC or a Mac).
Also, Leo tells me there’s a free and open alternative to Illustrator as well – meet Inkscape: “An Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Xara X.” This is a new one for me, but it’s there and it’s free and it’s just waiting for you to try it out.
On a final note, there also the burgeoning Open Font Library, launched only a couple of months ago.
So, with all these free tools and resources in front of you, it’s time to get a little bit creative, don’t you think?
