You Asked! 4: Software and Clip Art

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about what I use to create my documents and printables and graphics….and where I get my clip art.

For most of the printables that I create, I use Microsoft Publisher and then convert the files to pdfs so that you all can download them. Publisher has been a program that I’ve had for years and is part of the Microsoft Office Professional software pack. Many of the pieces of clip art that I use are from the Microsoft clip art collection {you can also access the images online}. Two other sites that I like to browse and use are clipart.com and fotolia.com. Both of those sites require either a membership or that you purchase download credits.

When I make headers, buttons, etc… for blog designs and such, I use Photoshop Elements 8. I actually picked up our software at Costco when they had a coupon for it and have LOVED it! It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that the full Photoshop has, but it also has a better price tag for me…especially since I’m just fiddling around. :) I’m still learning about much in the program, but it allows me much more freedom in creating graphics.

Hopefully that answers a few questions for you all! If you have other questions, leave a comment and let me know and I can hopefully answer it in a future post…or point you in the right direction.
