How to 'COPY & PASTE' clip art onto a project...

Was this article helpful?

To add a clip art image to a project using the 'COPY & PASTE' method... first open the program you will be working in (ie. Photoshop, Print Shop, Word etc.)  Start a new document/project, or open the one you wish to add clip art to.

Next, open the location on your computer that your clip art has been saved to.  Downloadable products usually go to 'Downloads' by default (unless you specify another location).  If you have a DJ CD installed, it will be located on the C drive.

Then, double-click on the DJ Inkers folder, then dbl-click on the appropriate CD (ie. Critter Craze) or unzipped download folder. Next, dbl-click on the image type folder you need (jpg or png) or Vector for PC and the Raster for MAC. Now you are viewing the different images from that CD/download. TIP: You can view the images as thumbnails (little pictures) instead of a list of words. Just click on the 'Views' menu and select 'thumbnails' or 'large icons.'

Once you select the image you would like, RIGHT CLICK on the image you want... this will bring up a small menu of options. Select 'Copy.' OR simply press & hold your Ctrl button & press the letter C at the same time.

Then go to your program with a project/document open, and RIGHT CLICK on the place you'd like your image to appear. Select from the menu 'Paste.' (If this doesn't work, go to your edit menu & choose 'Paste.') OR simply press & hold your Ctrl button & press the letter V at the same time. This will place your image.

Now you can re-size and move the image around as needed. See our page on the 'insert method' for further instructions on how to work with the image in Word.
