CAN YOU TELL THE DIFFERENCE?Trying trials being tried!


These are all examples from the Clip Art Site, free of charge on the Internet! All

usable on all sites, since they are all JPG or JPEG images! There are literally 10's of thousands of them! Used with Google's "broadsheet programme" it's great!(It's also European!)

Microsoft word, which only costs a couple of hundred $/Euros, including clip art, but not usable in all situations, actually has FEWER illustrations!

So there you are! I know what I'll be using in future!
The following two posts are really trials! Interesting snippets as well, but trials nonetheless.
The one where you see NO images, is a trial from Windows/Microsoft Word, using the "clip Art" files. Doesn't work, as you can see, and who is surprised? After all to allow people to use one of their magical programmes with a programme from Arch rivals Google, would be a mortal sin!
Google, on the other hand have no such problem - it all works! The second article (about the Scotsman) is using Google Broadsheets program.
Microsoft simply make it more difficult, for, to use their clip art items, I'm obliged to download them first to "My Pictures" folder and use them from there!
Well - I've got news for Microsoft! I've found a lovely little FREE site that allows
me to download directly to my blog(s) or to my PC, much more quickly than Microsoft, and IMAGINE........It's FREE - unlike Microsoft Office which is needed for Word and therefore for Clip Art also!

Enough of these serious matters, here is a current picture to "buck" you up!
(Smells like breakfast-"Streaky bacon!)
