Clipart Instructions

Your School Mascot Clipart Set is delivered to you by a download link. Simply click on the link, and a Zipped file will download onto your computer’s hard drive. Be sure to note where the download is copied onto your hard drive. Once the download is complete, double-click on the Zipped file. It will produce a folder right beside the Zipped file. Inside that folder, you’ll find three copies of each piece of clipart, plus a pdf showing you every image, and what it is named for convenient reference.

Each image in our School Mascot Clipart Sets comes in three different formats:

Low Resolution PNG – Ideal for electronic applications like Powerpoint and Web sites. The images come with a clear background; are 72 dpi (dots per inch), and approximately 4” tall. If you enlarge these images too much, they will pixelize rapidly.

High Resolution PNG – Good for print applications no larger than 10” tall. The images come with a clear background; are 300 dpi (dots per inch), and approximately 9” tall. If you enlarge these images too much, they can pixelize.

Unlimited Resolution Vector – Best for print applications like t-shirts, banners, posters, yearbooks, when quality needs to be the sharpest. The images come with a clear background and can be scaled as large as you want without losing any detail.

How do I use clipart images?

There are two ways to use a clipart image. One is to use an editing software such as Photoshop, Illustrator or Coreldraw to open the file and make changes in its native platform. If you don’t have the native program, or the software used to create the art, you need to place, or insert, the clipart inside of a document created by another software such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, InDesign or Publisher.

Depending on the software, you might be able to copy the art from one document and paste it inside a document from another software. For example, you can copy and paste images from a Word document into a Powerpoint or Excel document. You can do the same with images from Illustrator to InDesign, and back and forth.

How do I insert a clipart image?

Powerpoint, Excel and Word are the same. Open up the document you wish to put the image into. There are two ways to put the image in: Copy the image and paste directly into the document or go to “insert” at the top of the page, a drop down menu will appear. Click on the “Photo” then “Picture from file”.  When the new window appears, find the clipart on your computer and click “insert”.  (Older versions will be “insert”, “Picture”, “From File”.)For Indesign and Illustrator, go to “File” at the top of the page, a drop down menu will appear. Click on the “Place” (command D for InDesign), find your image and click open.
