Symphony Thursday: New Clip Art and Clip Art Collections on the Lotus Symphony Gallery

April 23 2009

This post is from the Notes Design Blog, by Mary Beth Raven:

You can browse and download  brand new Symphony clip art from the Gallery section of the Lotus Symphony website.

From the Gallery, there are two ways you can download clip art, as shown in the figure below.:

1.        "All In One" download: This is the most efficient way. You select your favorite category and then download the whole set of images. For example, if you want to download all of the "Bullet" icons, just click the "Bullets All In One", then from the details page, click "Download now" to get a .zip file (you need to unzip the file later).

2.        "One By One" download: You can also browse individual clip art images and select your favorite ones to download one at a time.

2. Click the "New Themes..." button, and you will see a pop up dialog.
3. Click the "General" tab then type a new Theme name. For example: New Bullets.
4. Click the "Files" tab.
5. Click "Find Files" and then navigate to the folder that contains the images you want to add.
6. Select one file and click "Add", or simply click "Add All" to put all images into your Gallery, then click "OK".
