Free Graduation Clip Art - Techniques


Now for some more detailed clip art techniques - I have listed several below which I hope you will find useful. You may find you are limited by the word processing tool you are using but certainly Microsoft Word can handle all the techniques listed below:


How to Copy the Graduation Clip Art from This Page


If you like any of the graduation clip art shown here then:


  • right click your mouse over the image and select "copy" (Cntrl + C)

  • enter your word processing package and select “paste” (Cntrl + V) .

How to Re-Size Your Clip Art


It is amazingly easy to either make your graduation clip art bigger or smaller - just follow the simple instructions below:


  • Click on the picture and some little squares will appear around the perimeter of the image

  • Move your mouse over one of the squares on the corner

  • Right click your mouse and drag your mouse in the desired direction depending on whether you want to increase or decrease the size of the graduation clip art.

Rotate your Graduation Clip Art


Even just tilting your graduation clip art to the side a bit can make it more interesting or using several clip art and tilting them in different directions. You are sure to have fun playing around with different designs. To do this I use Microsoft Word and click on the image I wish to rotate and I can then select one of the rotate buttons on the picture toolbar.


Text Wrapping


There are various text wrapping options you can choose that determine how the wording and graduation clip art image will work together on the page. Within your word document click on the image and select the various word wrapping options from the picture toolbar and experiment. The options available are:


  • In line with text - this is the default and it basically means that the free graduation clip art is inserted where ever the cursor is when you choose insert or paste and the text that you type will start appearing underneath the image.

  • Square text wrapping - this is where a square space surrounds your free graduation clip art and the text wraps around this square.

  • Tight - this means that the text actually wraps itself tightly around the shape of the image.

  • Behind Text - this option puts the graduation clip art in the background with text over the top of it. This works best if you “washout” your graduation clip art first.

  • Top and Bottom - this is where you can add text both above and below the image.


There are a few others but I think the 5 above are the most useful.


Apply a Washout to Your Graduation Clip Art


You can actually apply a washout to any clip art at all. If you do this and then stretch the clip art to cover your whole page and add some great text over the top it makes really great graduation announcements or invitations. I have done exactly this for some of my printable graduation invitations - why not have a look for some inspiration.


If you would like to give this a try then just follow the simple directions below:


  • Copy the free graduation clip art from this or any of the other web pages onto your word document.

  • Right-click with your mouse over the top of the graduation clip art image within your word document.

  • Select "format picture".

  • Select the "picture" tab.

  • Choose the “washout” option for “color”.

  • Select the “Layout” tab and choose the “behind text” option.

  • You are now ready to add whatever wording you desire.

How to Change the Color of the Free Graduation Clip Art


This is a fantastic discovery. I can change the color of any component of a graduation clip art image. It is a little fiddly but well worth having a go at. Again I used Microsoft Word in order to do this.


  • Copy the clip art from the web page onto your word document.

  • Right-click with your mouse over the top of the graduation clip art image within your word document.

  • Select "show picture tool bar".

  • Move your mouse over all the icons on the picture toolbar until you find the "set transparent color" option (looks a bit like a rubber with an arrow head at the bottom).

  • Now click with your mouse over the component of the graduation clip art which you would like to change the color of - this will wash the color out.

  • Right-click with your mouse over the top of the clip art image within your word document again.

  • Select "format picture"

  • Select "Color and lines"

  • Select a color under the "fill" category and click OK

  • Immediately you will see that you clip art color has changed.

How fantastic is that - did you know that the color purple is synonymous with graduation.


If you don't have Microsoft Word then here is an alternative method which won't be successful with all free graduation clip art images, but it's worth a try:

  • Open up the free graduation clip art with “Paint” - most computers have this tool within the “Accessories” section.

  • First of all you should zoom in on the graduation clip art image to make any changes much easier. To do this just click on “view” and “zoom”.

  • Now click on the desired color on the available color palette and decide on which tool would be best suited to your desired color change i.e. paint brush for intricate work, or paint can, or aerosol (all with appropriate safety) for bigger areas.

  • The beauty is that you can have several attempts at this (as long as you don’t save any changes) until it is just right.


Crop the Free Graduation Clip Art


If for whatever reason you would like to chop part of a graduation clip art image off then here are some easy instructions for you to follow. This technique is especially useful for photographs when you maybe want to cut out some boring background if there is too much of it showing but perhaps there will be an occasion when you'd like to home in on a particular component of a clip art image too.


  • Copy the free graduation clip art from this or any of the other web pages onto your word document.

  • Right-click with your mouse over the top of the clip art image within your word document.

  • Select "format picture".

  • Select the "picture" tab.

  • Next just adjust the "crop from" options (left, right, top and bottom) in order to obtain the desired result.

How To Separate The Free Graduation Clip Art Into Layers


Basically clip art is made up from lots of different layers.




Consider this easy example of free graduation clip art above. This is made up of 6 layers consisting of 3 books and 3 scrolls. If you don’t like the color of one of the books or the position of the scrolls then by separating them you can easily change them.

In order to separate the free graduation clip art just following these steps:
  • Copy the clip art into Microsoft Word.

  • Left-click on the clip art and a box appears around it.

  • Now, right-click on the clip art and select “edit picture”.

  • Select the clip art and then right-click on it. Select “Grouping”, then “Ungroup”.


Once it’s "ungrouped" you can change any part separately with whatever graphics editing tool you want.


I hope you have found the graduation clip art you need!
