Graphics you can use on your Home Page...

Using Graphics from a ClipArt collection ... download the graphic to your hard drive. Then upload it to your own server...

never NEVER code your HTML to a person's graphics from their server. WHY??? Your page could take a very long time to load if you link this way ... the person you took the graphics from could remove the graphic, and then you are left with all those ugly "graphics missing" icons ... the person could get really upset and not only take the graphic off their server, but replace it with a not so nice graphic and your page would look REALLY bad!

Get Permission to use a graphic. How would you like to spend hours drawing a picture, put it on your webpage... then one day while you're surfing the net... "WHAM" there it is... your picture is on someone else's page! Not such a nice feeling! ...it's not nice to steal, not even on the internet!

If you use a person's graphics, add a note on your page telling who the graphic belongs to, and a link to where others can find these graphics to use on their Home Page. This is a very nice way to say THANK YOU!
