You have that friend. If I have him, you have him; if I'm writing this and it's being posted on the web, and you're reading it, you know the guy I'm talking about. The graphic design friend. He's a great guy. He's into anime and Macs and is always there when you need him-well, maybe not when, but he's around. See, your graphic design friend is your friend, and you're his. You don't always rate as top customer. That's why, when it comes to graphic design, you should never, never, never rule out free clipart. If you do, you're stuck on your friend's timing. (And he's always behind.)
The term 'Clipart' refers to images that can be copied from a source and easily pasted into a document in a computer. An example of such art would be a stylized letter or a picture of a Christmas tree that could be pasted on a Christmas card or menu.
The easiest method for colorizing clipart is to use the fill tool. On most graphic editing programs, the fill tool is symbolized by a bucket. Simply click on the clipart you want to colorize, and fill with the color of your choice. This method does work, but may not always yield desired results. If your graphics program offers a magnetic lasso tool, that may be a better option.
