WP Clipart is an attempt to make a useful clip art package of public domain images for use in word processors. It includes an optional cross-platform viewer/editor written with Python/GTK. The collection contains primarily non-transparent PNG images, mid-tones expanded and large shadow areas minimized (to prevent blocking-up) for inkjet print quality. It is suitable for documents as well as Web graphics, but also has business application. Its primary focus is for educational use (pictures of all US presidents, all country flags alphabetically listed, all US states, historical figures, a sign language alphabet, and a large American history section.)

Release Notes: This is primarily a maintenance release to update code to recent GTK/Python releases. A few UI tweaks were also made. Images the in clip-art collection are downloadable as separate zipped files. The entire collection has grown to about 1.6 GB, so distribution as an all-in-one package has become impracticable.
Release Notes: Included clip art was updated. Over 34000 images are provided. All 48 sections are also available for separate download as ZIP archives.
Release Notes: The viewer/editor now works with transparent images (except for a few transform functions, which are disabled when viewing a transparent image). Clip art and pictures are included in the full download, numbering over 30,000. A few other GUI tweaks were made to the viewer.
Release Notes: Wpclipper.py was updated to allow horizontal resizing to make viewing long title names easier. A bit of code cleanup was done. The updated install package was re-released and the runBrowser command (for the homepage link) was accommodated on Absolute Linux. As always, the stand-alone Python script for the viewer/editor is available online in the wpclipart.com/viewer directory. (No Glade or other support modules are used.)
Release Notes: Due to collection size, the program's download is being split into sections. The viewer/editor script (or executable for Windows) will accompany each clip art category. The first category is "holiday"; others will follow until all 48 clip art sections are available for download. This version also includes added clip art, updated program internal documentation, and a minor bugfix to eliminate a possible display warning on rapid image changes.
