How will I know if I'll like using the wmf clipart?
You will love them! You won't believe how beautifully they print and how much control you have with resizing them as small or large as you want, and with being able to place them right next to each other, touching, overlapping, on top of each other, with NO backgrounds at all to get in the way! These images are so great to work with. Images created by Original Country Clipart by Lisa are colorful, detailed, fun and cute and are not like the plain ordinary ones included with most publishing programs. Try them and see for yourself!
Are WMFs at least 300 dpi?
WMF Printable Clip Art IS BETTER THAN 300 DPI....there is NO dpi to a wmf file because it is not made up of pixels or dots. WMF is a vector format. A vector format has no size ...and you can shrink it as small as you want or enlarge it as big as you want with absolutely no change in resolution at all. It will never get blurry...you'll never be able to say you made it "too" big. Dpi has no meaning when you are talking about a vector file.
What exactly is WMF Clip Art anyway?
WMF is an image format that is a "vector" format. WMF stands for "Windows Meta File". You can resize the image all you want and it will NEVER get blurry or distorted. It will always print perfectly crisp and clear at ANY size.
Will these WMFs work on my computer?
Yes, if you are using a Windows Computer. These files work wonderfully
in programs such as MS Publisher, MS Word, Illustrator, Print Shop,
Print Artist, Print Master, Home Publishing, American Greetings CreataCard,
Art Explosion Scrapbook Factory, etc.. Just be sure to import the wmf
file into your document correctly, don't copy/paste it. For example,
in MS Word, choose Insert Picture From File. You can also download
the free XnView program that lets you view folders of wmf files,
convert them to other file formats, and more. You can also associate
Windows Paint (the paint program that comes automatically installed
on windows operating systems) to automatically open to let you view
the wmf file whenever you double click on one. To do this, right click
on a wmf file, choose "Open With" and then browse to C\Windows\System32
and find mspaint.exe and choose it as the default program. You can also
open the wmf files in Microsoft Office Picture Manager (found in the
Microsoft Office Tools folder if you have Office) and export them out
as a png file (resizing 100% larger will produce better quality). PNG
files have transparent backgrounds and they look beautiful printed.
This works nicely for using WMF (converted to png) files in Photoshop.
