1) How do I make use of a clip posted to alt-binaries.clip-art?
Most of the art posted to alt.binaries.clip-art is UUENCODED. Before you
can make use of a uuencoded post, you must first save it to a file,
strip off the headers (all the the lines up to the one that starts with
BEGIN) using an editor and save the file. Hopefully your system will
already have the UUDECODE utility installed. Type "uudecode <filename>"
to convert the file back to its original binary format. Now you may
transfer it back to your local system using your favorite protocol.
2) How do I convert .gif files to another format?
There are many programs available for the Macintosh, MSDOS and other
platforms, both commecial and shareware. Look in the graphics directory
of your favorite FTP site for such a program.
For the Macintosh, my favorite is called Graphics Converter.
It is available for ftp on inform.umd.edu in the
/software/Macintosh/Utilities directory as graphic-converter-177us.cpt,
it is a very nice peice of software.
For the IBM, Image Alchemy is nice.

links regarding desktop publishing and clip art. Geof has done a terrific
