Image Number 5 for United States Patent #8091018.
A computer-implemented method and system for creating and implementing dynamic clip art images in a software module. Clip art images are typically static in nature and cannot be modified by a user. This limitation with conventional clip art images makes them inflexible and inefficient. In contrast, a dynamic clip art image can be used to represent several similar static clip art images. Those elements of the similar static images that are distinct can be represented by dynamic properties that can be customized by a user. Dynamic clip art images can be modified by a user while inserted in an electronic document thereby eliminating the need to locate new static clip art images to replace existing static images in a document.
