TOU for Distance Learning Resources
If you have questions about using my educational resources for distance learning during this time, please see below for details.
Printing Trouble? Read This!
PROBLEM: I can’t get my PDF pages to print properly.
SOLUTIONS: Check that you have tried the following things:
- You have opened the document using Adobe Reader (not Preview).
- You have updated your version of Adobe Reader. An outdated version will often show black boxes behind clip art and other irregularities. Latest Adobe updates are free here: Click for LATEST ADOBE UPDATE
- You have chosen “adjust to fit” in your printer settings.
- You have chosen “advanced” and “print as image”.
- Restart your computer and try again.
If the above information doesn’t solve the problem, please contact TPT tech help by emailing your details to: [email protected]
If you purchased the resource through my Teachers Pay Teachers store, or have a question unrelated to tech issues such as a typo or error, please send me question in the “Ask A Question” tab on the TPT page. You can also email me directly at [email protected]
TOU for CLIP ART
The type of clip art you choose depends on how you will use it:
Secured images means the page is flattened like an image – nothing on the page is moveable. Securing clip art is required for printables, centers, posters or flattened backgrounds in google slides.
•YES: Educational content is added to the art (example: worksheets, flash cards, games, puzzles, brag tags, signs, lesson plans, certificates, color by numbers, etc.)
•YES: Movable images, only if using an extended license with layering OR using graphics specifically designed as and labeled movable images).
•NO: Coloring pages, décor, print-on-demand onto cups or t-shirts, stickers, buttons, digitized embroidery, or to sell on sites that have a Creative Commons license.
•NO: Sharing, trading, redistributing, reselling or altering images (by removing or adding details), posting online, or using to make new art.
OPTION 1 for Movable Images:
You can use any graphics as movable pieces, but this requires an extended license and some kind of OVERLAY of text on the image (see pictures below). Why? Clip art used this way is completely vulnerable to theft by anyone who uses your resources, but the overlay of text makes that less likely. This may be a good choice if you already own a lot of my clip art. See examples of how to do this properly below:
OPTION 2 for movable images:
Choose graphics that are specifically made more using as movable pieces. These require NO EXTENDED LICENSE and NO OVERLAY. These graphics have a lower dpi resolution and are not idea for making printed projects because they will pixelate when enlarged on the page. The clip art is still vulnerable to theft, but the lower dpi makes that less likely. All of these clip art sets are clearly marked as DIGITAL/MOVABLE and contain the words “digi” and “WWT” (for Whimsy Workshop Teaching) in the file name so you can search your computer for them very quickly (Example: “triangle blue digi WWT” ) . Not sure if this option works for your project? You can try a FREE set of Flowers images in this format by clicking HERE.
Also available as movable images:
