During your creative process you occasionally may find the need for clipart. There are dozens of commercial programs that offer clipart or you can download it from many sites on the internet. In many cases clipart will have your subject matter placed on a solid background.
This may be fine if you are printing on the same color as the background, such as a white piece of paper with a white background. Or you may be placing the clipart on a white background on a webpage. This can create a distracting problem, say if you are printing on a colored sheet of paper (or a colored webpage) and your subject's background is a different color. In the example above, The JPEG clipart image of the elephant has a white background and the project was to the displayed on a brown background.
