Wonderful imagesAug 23, 2007
If you like Victorian ephemera, this book of silhouette images is for you. Although they do come in the .eps format on the CD they are nevertheless raster images. However, since they are in black and white they are very versatile. Using any layer-based or object-based program like PhotoImpact, Photoshop, PS Elements, or Paint Shop Pro, it's easy to remove them from the background and then use them for anything you want. They've been scanned onto the CDROM at a generous 600 ppi.

I sometimes work up ideas for logos, tee shirts, etc. for local organizations. These items have been a great help in producing designs.

old fashioned silhouettesAug 31, 2011
purchased from amazon. looking for a range of these silhouettes, i purchased: Ready-to-Use Old-Fashioned Silhouettes (Dover Clip-Art Series) and Old-Fashioned Silhouettes (Dover Electronic Clip Art) (CD-ROM and Book) . they have different covers and i assumed they contained different silhouettes. i was wrong. both books' inside pages were exactly the same. i also purchased: 150 Silhouette Designs (Dover Electronic Clip Art) (CD-ROM and Book) at the same time. both of the books' information says that the files on the cd roms come in many formats, including EPS. in my line of work, EPS means vector file, not just saving the jpg as an eps. however, there were NO vector files. these images were just scans of the images. i had to open one of the disk packages to actually find this out.
i have called to return the whole order and explained this to the customer service person. i EMPHASIZED that i had opened one of the disk packages which might indicate that i copied it before returning (which i did not, since a bitmap saved as an EPS is not what i needed), and she said that was ok. these things might work for a scrapbooker but i am a graphic designer and need high resolution images that i can manipulate. I have yet to find out if i will actually receive a credit for this purchase.
