    Anyone know a decent site for downloading free clipart? Can't just use any old image from an image search since it's most likely copyrighted. I tried googling for free clipart but the only results it gets are dodgy top 100 sites that all just link back to each other. You'd think I was looking for porn or software cracks.

    Basically images that I'm free to use and publish.
    Looking for cartoony pictures to be a bit more specific.

    Hmm doesn't have what I need. At home I have a huge 9 disc clip art set, wish I had that with me now.

    Found something suitable on the MS Office web site. I'm assuming they are free to use for any purpose?

    In MS Word just click more clips online or whatever it is, you can then browse through thousands of clip arts, put the ones you want in a shopping basket style thing and download them as on file afterwards which will automatically insert the images into word clipart. I'm not sure what the rules are on putting them on website/programs other than a microsoft document, they might have some rule that allows you only to use them in an office document?
