View Full Version : Clipart formats

I have a CD Rom of clipart 'compatible with any program supporting CGM,WMF,EPS and PCX formats'

Have tried to acces then to use in Word or Outlook Express without success.

What am I doing wrong?

Really do need help!

Those filetypes sound like special formats and word/OE may not cut it to view them.

You may need a graphics program to use them like psp, not sure about wmf which is windows meta file format - maybe try importing into word or paint.

Actually ms paintbrush can read pcx files so try opening them in there then either re-saving as bmp or copy and pasting into word.

Or maybe you can import into word?

Hello Gordon,

you should be able to use those files in nearly any programme, Microsoft use WMF format for a lot of it's clipart so there should be no problem with Word etc.

Let us know how you are trying to use the clipart off the disk and we might be able to put you right.

Are you doing the following?

In Word click on Insert Menu,Picture Clipart and then Import Clipart.

Browse to your CD drive and you should be abble to see all the pictures on the CD.
