This CD-ROM contains all three "Clip Art for the Liturgical Year" volumes for both the PC (Windows) and the Macintosh. It contains 500 tiff-format images at a resolution of 300 dip (average image size, 2.5 x 2.5 at 100 per cent), for the professional b&w graphics needed for the Church, school or personal documents. A help menu assists users in learning the streamlined and intuitive browser program that "houses" the images. The browser program allows users to view "thumbnails" of the images, so it is easier to choose which one to use. When selected, an information box accompanies the thumbnail, and provides "notes", which act as an index that may be sorted. For instance, users can search for words, such as "advent" or "saint" to find appropriate images from all three "Clip Art" volumes. Programs that support OLE (object linking and embedding), such as PageMaker 5.0 and higher, allow users to "drag and drop" images direct from the browser into selected documents. However, any program that supports the popular tiff format can use these images. The system requirements are: IBM 386 or higher, Windows 3.1; or Macintosh II or higher, Mac portables and SE/30, System 6.x (System 7.x recommended for drag and drop); 4MB RAM (8MB recommended); CD drive; mouse; VGA graphics adapter; with a colour monitor preferred.
