- On Monday, for forty-five cents, I purchased a set of three CDs at the thrift store. The box claims there are 75,000 clipart and images on the three discs. I was most interested in the 1,800 JPeg photographs. Without installing any of the included programs I was able to open the Photos folder. Inside I discovered eighteen other folders each with one hundred images. I'm going to enjoy sharing some of these images in my blog postings in coming days.
