Note ! the Photoshop subscription Bev was worried about it at first but her Photoshop was so old she took the plunge you pay per month and get the newest version it is only 10$ a month she has the lowest plan $9.99    and we spend that on supplies  or  a pizza …Bev absolutely loves it & she thinks 10$ a month on something you love is worth it specially if you do not have other hobbies…  but that is her opinion

Image Vectors & Clip Art

These are vectors and cllip art. that you can use in your projects.. They are safe to use them . These sites are for artist and designers  That the artist has drawn/made themselves amd upload to sites …they are made with programs like Adobe Illustrator they have their own file type .AI , .EPS   . you must have Adobe Illustrator Photoshop or PSP X6 or later to open  up . AI , EPS , and PDF Files ..

Most of the AI EPS Files  have a backgrounds  that you have to remove remove background and make them transparent …. I use the magic wand tool mostly with AI files since the background is easy to remove…

Some of this places require you to have a free  account to download some sets a download limit   for free accounts perday .. Freepik limits Vecteezy doesn’t

Both has unlimited & special vectors  downloads for paid members .. I just have a free account and search when I am doing a project & a theme  these places  are becoming a favorite of mine lately.  .. The paid membership you you do not have to credit . the site but the free account you do have to credit …
