Texas Reading Club Jubilee: 1958 - 2008

Typical uses for image files saved in the JPEG format:

The two most common uses for JPEG (.jpg) clip art image files are to:

  1. Send as email attachments that can be easily viewed in the body of the email or in a browser
  2. Place on a Web page
  3. Insert into a MS Word document

Using a GIF file with transparent background:

Generally, GIF files can be used in the same ways as JPEG files. The transparent background means that the file's background is invisible. When these files are placed 'on top' of other images and only the clip art figure will appear without being surrounded by a white box.

Typical uses for image files saved in the PDF format

The PDF files of TTR.08 clip art each contain two pages of drawings in several different sizes. Artwork saved in the portable document file (PDF) format is used:

  1. For printing onto paper using a laser or dot matrix printer for use cutting/pasting onto publications
  2. By graphic arts professionals when high-resolution artwork is needed
  3. PDF files can also be easily attached to email messages for transport
