Free Vintage Graphic – Victorian Summer Fruit Basket

Today’s vintage graphic is a picture of a lovely, victorian (?) basket of fruit from a public domain site.  I cut out the white background and saved it as a .png file and it’s ready for your crafting use.  The colors in this image are so rich and the fruit looks pretty mouth watering.  Enjoy!

Image Facts:

The picture is smallish in terms of an image suitable for  print quality but for the web it is pretty big,  (it’s all about the dpi = dots per inch). In any case, the pic is  650px by 478px and is a .png file (meaning it’s background is transparent) , and would print out at about a 2″ by 1.5″ rectangle at  300 dpi. The higher resolution can be obtained by clicking on the picture below.

If you save  this image using right-click, on your Windows software its resolution  is only at 72 dpi and it approximately 288px by 212px and it is a jpeg file.

This is a picture of a lovely victorian hand calling card (i.e. victorian scrap)  with roses and a lovely white dove.  The picture is small at 500px by 280px and is a .png file (the background is transparent), and would print out at about a 1″ by 1.5″ rectangle at  300 dpi. The higher resolution can be obtained by clicking on the picture below.

Free Vintage Graphic – Rooster and Chicken

farm-scene

It’s a long story as to why I like chickens and roosters, and a kind of quaint one; however,   the relative who used to raise them wouldn’t appreciate my sharing all the details of the story, so until I get clearance from that  corner I’ll just keep it at that.

I found this following vintage graphic  image as a public domain item, digitally cropped it and cleaned it up.  It is saved as a .png file ( I know all you savvy digital scrappers know that a .png file  is an image file with a transparent background).  Unfortunately, the chickens were standing in grass so their feet look a little rough and I didn’t have time to crop out the feet and/or add fake grass.

The actual image is 709 px by 535 px and once you click on the image another tab will open on your browser in order to download it from my Photobucket site. The image will display and you can  pretty much save the file, by using the “Save As” function in Microsoft Windows.

If you are not familiar with downloading images from Photobucket, the following is a screenshot of what you might be expected to see and your other options for linking and sharing. 😉  (Of course this, will depend on how I link the file.)

Please read my TOU (terms of use) page before downloading.  Disregard the white background in the screenshot, that’s just the way Photobucket displays their images.

If you notice the screenshot shows the dialog box showing the .png extension. I hope that that clears up any confusion.

Photobucket-Preview

While I am still debating as to where to set up my image downloads in order to make it the most accessible to those who are interested, I’m going to test this on my Photobucket account for now. In  the near future, I plan to upload larger files  elsewhere.   I hope you enjoy it!
