New Lukasz Adam Illustrations

We have another great resource for illustrations and artwork to use with your certificate creations. It is my pleasure to welcome Lukasz Adam and his illustrations into the CertificateCreator libary. His library of illustrations are free to use for personal and commercial use (MIT License). The initial import was about 180 separate illustrations that can be accessed from inside the Certificatate Creator from the category. The illustrations are also tagged with other categories where appropriate and are searchable by keywords. Illustrations sample

Lukasz’s illustrations cover a broad range, there are illustrations for business, school and sports/fitness.

New illustrations added too

There’s also 55 new illustrations added to the Certificatate Creator to compliment your certificate creations. Clip Art sample

Version 4.3 Released

news and updates

What’s new in version 4.3.0

This is a request that comes up every few years, but not enough to ever make it onto the to do list in the last 18 years, but it was finally time to give the ability to create portrait orientation certificates:

  • When creating new certificates there is now a Document Setting window that allows you to choose between Portrait and the traditional Landscape orientation. Document Settings Menu
  • The Document Settings can be accessed and changed any time. However, be aware when going between the 2 modes you can get items off the page. Document Settings Dialog
  • The rotation slider has been changed to a number input field for better precision and control.
  • Other minor bug fixes

unDraw Clip Art Added

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon the unDraw clip art collection by Katerina Limpitsouni. «A constantly updated collection of beautiful svg images that you can use completely free and without attribution.» The nice images caught my eye but also the MIT license that she is using, which allows the us to incorporate them into the Certificate Creator! I’ve spent the last couple of weeks preparing the files and putting them into the system. I’m happy to announce we have brought in 100+ unDraw images that are ready to use for your certificates and awards. The unDraw library can be found in it’s own category in the Clip Art section. Select from the category drop-down.

The unDraw images (.svg or .png formats) can be download right from the unDraw site to use in your presentations and other projects.

I’d like to see how the unDraw images can be used in your certificates so be sure to share your certificates. Clip Art sample 01 Clip Art sample 02 Clip Art sample 03

Sharing Certificates

Brand new in version 4.1 is the ability to share your own creations with other Certificate Creator members. A few things to keep in mind before sharing your work:

  1. Upon publishing a certificate it will no longer be private, all members will have access to use and print this certificate.
  2. Any shared certificate is free of any Copyright or Trademark images and/or text.
  3. Remove any names, schools or companies from the certificate before publishing.
  4. This feature is not available for Free Accounts, you’ll need to purchase a subscription to share

Basically if you have used uploaded any clip art or other files to use with your certificate then it’s probably not a good candidate to share without modifing it. We are excited to see what all our members create and share!
