Tips and Tricks: Free CU Vector Sites

October 9, 2014

tips and tricks head

Vector graphics can be used in Adobe Illustrator, later versions of Photoshop, and other graphics editing software such as Inkscape that supports AI and EPS files.  Vectors have an advantage over clipart in JPG or PNG formats since you can scale vector files to any size without loss of quality.

Just like any other 3rd party graphics, if you intend to use someone else’s vector art in your designs, be sure to…

  • Read and understand all of the TOU/Licensing. Does the licensing agreement allow unlimited (extended) commercial use? Or are there restrictions?
  • Obey any and all restrictions in the TOU.
  • Make a note of the web page where you downloaded the vector as well as the page the website’s licensing/TOU is located. You will need to include this information in your Notes to Reviewer to avoid your card being Returned for Edits.

Here’s are a couple of posts on other site offering a pretty good run down of what’s out there. There may be some overlap between them. Of course, you can always do your own searches t find other sources of material. Have fun!
