In this article, we’re talking about the top 7 public domain clip art galleries.


Clker is one of the most popular clip art galleries still online. There are thousands of vector images to choose from and a good collection of raster images.

There’s also a rather strong sense of community. Members can contribute by editing or improving existing images or uploading their own, and tagging the collection to improve the site. There’s also a handy online editor that you can use.
