Veridic Technologies Pvt Ltd :- Even at a time when the internet was just beginning, and once each document designed in Microsoft Word was covered in ugly generic cartoon pictures, there were freely available images called Clip Art. The idea behind Clip Art was to provide images which might be used freely in documents, without worrying about copyright.
This concept was something invented by Microsoft, and now’s slightly dated. In the year 2009, the internet is now awash with free legal media licensed under what’s called a creative commons license. Creative commons is a license that allows original artists to share their work, be it a song, an image, a video, and have others using it under the conditions provided.
That is a good thing because it allows you know where you stand in regards to copyright, which if you’re a designer is an excellent thing. You do not want your customers to get in trouble over a mistake you’ve made with copyright. Vector graphics are images created in applications like Adobe Illustrator or Corel draw.
Vector graphics are scalable, and an efficient format for images which use a lower color range, like cartoon illustrations and logos. Now the cool part is if you combine vector graphics with a creative commons license is that you’ve a whole heap of legal pictures available to use for your graphic design projects.
Perhaps you wish to design poster for work, and you’re unsure on how to assemble find legal images to use, or you need an image for use on the company web site, but are unsure where you stand with copyright.
