Open a word processing application/program. This is usually Microsoft Word or Powerpoint. I'm going to take you through Powerpoint because that is what MOST people making resources use (including me). You are probably thinking, "Powerpoint? Huh?" Just trust me on this.
On my computer, I go to "Applications" and then to "Microsoft Office" to find a word processing program.
After opening up that folder, this is what I see. I open Microsoft Powerpoint.
This is what comes up when I open Powerpoint. I click "Cancel" and do not choose any of these options.
This is the next window that appears. It's an empty "slide" or page that has a couple of text boxes in it already. If you don't want your slide to be facing this direction (landscape), you need to change it NOW. If you want your page to be "long" as my mom calls it (portrait), go to "File" then "Page Setup."
I click those text boxes and delete them.
Now I have a blank slate.
When you downloaded your clipart, it saved somewhere. You are the only one who knows where you saved it. Some computers have a "Download" folder that things go in when you download them. I always make sure mine saves to my desktop so I can easily find it. When you find your download, it will be a "ZIP" file that looks like the one below (it has a zipper image on it and says "ZIP"). Open that up. Take note of my desktop background...it's my sweet baby boy :) Say hello to Oliver!
When you open my folder, here's what will be inside.
Logo: The logo is for people that will be using the clipart for teaching resources. If you use my clipart on free or paid items, you must provide me with credit by placing my logo in your document (most people have a page at the end of their resource thanking the clipartist(s) along with their logos). This is similar to how an illustrator is given credit on the front of a book. If you are just using the clipart for yourself or your classroom, you don't need to worry about the logo.
Preview: This is just a preview of what's included in the clipart file. It's purpose is to show people what's in the download.
JPG: These are the clipart files. These have white backgrounds on them.
PNG: These are also the clipart files. These have clear backgrounds on them. They work best for people that put clipart on top of other clipart or are using a different color background other than white. Open the PNG folder.
Now, you should have 2 windows showing. The one on my left is the Powerpoint slide I got ready earlier. The one on the right is the clipart folder. Select a clipart file that you like and drag it to the blank page in Powerpoint.
And if you are looking for a specific store that you already know the name of, it will pop up as you are typing, so just click on it when you see it.
Once you are there, you can choose to "follow" the store. This means that you'll be able to see when that store puts out new products. If you like that store's stuff, click the little star under their store name that says "Follow Me." You can use the main search bar up on top to look for all kinds of things.
