Art Search

If you want Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker to search for clip art images on your computer's hard drive(s), click on the Art Search tab near the top of the program's main window. Then follow these steps:

1) Type something to search for into the "Search for:" field. The search will find any file names containing the text string you've entered here. If a directory name contains the string you've typed in, the search will find any images in that directory and its subdirectories. If you leave the "Search for:" field blank, the search will find all images in all directories.

2) Choose the image types that you want to search through, in the "File types:" combo box. If you select "All", the search will find any image types that the program supports. Currently this includes file extension types .bmp, .dib, .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .pcx, .wmf, .gif, and .tif, plus various flavors of Raw images.

3) Click the "Search" button. The button will change into a "Stop" button. Clicking on it again will stop the search. Once the search has finished, it will revert back to a "Search" button.

Any images that the search finds will show up in the thumbnails list. The search will only find files on your computer's fixed drives  -- it will skip floppy drives, CD-ROM drives, Zip drives, etc. If you need to search on a removable drive, you'll have to click on the Art Browse tab and use our explorer control to find the clip art you're looking for.
