Okara has developed important, new images for the History category regarding the Civil Rights Era of the 1950s-1970s, historical figures and images requested by our customers. View the small samples of these images below that are now in the new release of HistoriClipz, a special release apart from the Jazzy Clipz 2 CD-ROM now on sale. These images will be excellent for school use as there are virtually no records in clip art form of the struggle which occurred in parts of the South during these years.
Mr. Lewis Temple (below, right), inventor of an improved harpoon for the New England whaling industry, is one of many important historical figures included in the HistoriClipz CD- ROM.
We are also bundling Thumbs+ CD catalogue program for viewing these images, plus an installable shareware version for cataloguing your own graphical images. Owners of Jazzy Clipz 2 are reminded that they already have the shareware Thumbs+ program for viewing additional images outside of the Jazzy Clipz collection.
HistoriClipz features 28 unique images plus variations totalling 340 files in greyscale, modular elements and different files types of the same images. Categories of images include Scholars,
Explorers, Scientists, Sports Figures, Civil Rights Era and Miscellaneous. In addition to image files there is also a help file (created in Adobe Acrobat [PDF] format)
detailing the accomplishments of personalities as well as events depicted on the disc. Some unusual images reside on the cd-rom such as images of an African Boabab Tree, male and female hands
giving five, a brother stressed out and Ku Klux Klan figures plus a lynched Black man

As a company which values serving its customers with ever- innovative solutions in the clip art field, Okara Graphics has moved away from the Windows Help utility approach (used in Jazzy Clipz) to embrace the cross-platform wonder, Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format. Sadly, many purveyors of African-American clip art don't even bother to provide such amenities in the first place!
Below is an image capture of one of our Acrobat catalogue pages with thumbnails and associated annotations. Only with Okara products will you benefit from this user-informative approach to product development. Even though the Mac users will not be able to avail themselves of the Thumbs+CD utililty (Windows-specific program) cited above, they can take advantage of the PDF-based help file which has a parallel catalogue as shown below.
