UPDATE: The latest Art Explosion release is: Art Explosion 800,000.
Brimming with a wide variety of clip art images, this 29-CD-ROM
set is ideal for most families’ desktop publishing, project,
presentation, and Internet publishing graphics needs. Loads of
vector and raster images, fine art, classic and traditional
images, photographs (including a collection of high-resolution
photos ideal for printing), backgrounds, technical symbols, and
web graphics are featured. Though users can choose to use many of
the images for web publishing, those specifically designed for web
use are fast loading, and include such popular items as buttons
and bullets. A collection of GIF animations is included as well.
The telephone book-sized user manual includes grayscale
thumbnails of most of the package’s clip art, allowing users to
browse images away from the computer. Once a desired image has
been located, users simply determine which of the six categories
it falls under, and then place the correct CD-ROM into the drive.
This manual is extremely well organized and easy to use.
Images can be added into most word-processing and graphics
publishing programs, and are fully editable using a graphics
program such as Microsoft Image Composer or the included bonus
program Kai's Photo Soap.
A simple but especially handy feature is found in the names of
the images – instead of the standard 8-character DOS file names
for images, the ones included in this package are intuitive! So,
for example, an image of a man at a bus stop is labeled exactly
Win 95/98/NT 4.0, Mac System 7.0.
UPDATE April 2004: The
latest version of Art Explosion is Art Explosion 800,000
with 34 CD-ROMs of clip art.
