Image Gallery

To assist its customers, CalRecycle has made collections of free, electronic clip art available on its website. Use the links on the left to view the current collections. Please note that use of this artwork is subject to copyright guidelines.

The images are available in a variety of formats. Select the image format that best meets your needs to download a full-scale version of the image. If you wish to utilize the thumbnail version, select the GIF format link or simply right-click on the image and save it to a desired location.

  • GIF format--Best format for use on Web pages for graphics with blocks of color (e.g., clip art and drawings). Small file size, it will not resize well.
  • JPG format--Best format for use on Web pages for photographs or artwork that includes shading or blending. Small file size, it will not resize well.
  • TIFF format--Bit-mapped graphics format. Very good for printed material at current or reduced image size. You will lose clarity if you enlarge more than slightly.
  • WMF format--Vector graphics format. Very good for printed material used within Microsoft Windows applications, especially if you need to significantly enlarge the image size.
  • EPS format--Vector graphic format. Very good for printed material especially if you need to significantly enlarge the image size. (See Using EPS files for more information.)

Additional collections are planned. If you have electronic clip art that you believe would be of use to others, please contact the CalRecycle Webmaster.
