whats the best clipart collection for the mac? i noticed with art explosion there is no os x compatible browser viewer to go thru all the .wmf files, sigh... makes searching for the perfect picture very cumbersome...

and also theres so many ive seen, like: big box of art, broderbunds clickart, art explosion... which one is the best? has the most variety and good quality artwork?

any recommendations would be appreciated...

I used the explosion series for a while, a lot of it is really bad or poorly constructed.

Google images seems to work well. ;> Seriously, there are a lot of sources online that make a static set of discs unwieldy. I had the 32disc set of images and the catalog of thumbnails was just a portion of library anyhow. You had to get to the appropriate disc before you could view if you wanted something or not or were going to be able to find it.

My suggestion, look online:

Stock xchange (sp?)
http://www.sxc.hu/

http://www.istockphoto.com/
has a lot of photography AND vector art for very little cost per download

http://www.morguefile.com/
more photos for free in most uses

Anyone else with online resources?!? I'd like to find any others if you've found them useful.
