Hello my helpful friends.
Now I have got going with my 'openoffice' software I now want some character icon for each new article with in the newsletter. I have tries searching the net but have been hit by a dialer virus (Which I cleverly removed) I did manage to catch a few cute cartoon icons that were very suitable Walt Disney type but not sure if that was the virus site. Any ideas guys?
regards

Remember that most such images will probably be copyright. Unless they have a statement saying that they are public domain, they are not free for use basically.

While getting caught will probably be only a very remote possibility, you need to consider the legal aspect.

I have been through the exercise of getting permission to use images from websites. Its very painful. And slow.

Can you make your own?? Using a Photo/Paint Shop program & "Morph" heads & bodies . That way every Icon is appropriate to the item. PJ
