If you are using America Online (AOL), you will also find many forums containing graphics information. Some include images, applications, and file format specifications available for downloading. The focus of graphics information on AOL is the Graphic Arts Program (keyword GRAPHICS), a repository of graphics information. There are two versions of the Graphic Arts Program--one for the PC and one for the Macintosh. You can easily navigate from one to the other.
