           Summary: Usability enhancement for new and casual computer users
           Product: openclipart.org
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Windows (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: website
        AssignedTo: clipart at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: twriterext at gmail.com

These enhancements submitted at the suggestion of Jon Phillips.

The instructions for downloading a single clip art file are not
clear--especially for new and casual computer users--because:

1. The pop-up item for the Clip Art tab on the home page says "See the latest
clip art uploads."

2. On the Clip Art page, except for the word "More" at the bottom of the page,
there is no indication of how many files are available, and therefore no
indication that there are more than a few of the "latest clip art uploads."

3. The FAQ "How do I download the clip art" can be misinterpreted to mean that
only packages are available for download.

Recommended enhancements:

1.Change the pop up message associated with the Clip Art tab on the home page
to read "Browse the many clip art files" or something similar.

2. Repeat on the clip art pages(s), the info from the "Quick Stats" display on
the home page.

3. In the FAQ, change this sentence: "At this time, all art since January 2007
and parts of the older collections must be downloaded as individual files from
the website." to:

"Click on the Clip Art tab for access to the many public domain clip art
files."  Or something similar.
