I just install Click Art 1200000. An impressive number, but all I can access are the thumbnails. All of the images say they are available online, but I cannot find anything that tells me where to go to get the images. All help will be greatly appreciated.
Although 1,148,372+ of the images are online, 51,628 images are actually on the CDs (according to Broderbund's ClickArt® 1.2 Million web site).
To search the online content as well as the content included on CDs, click View in the menu bar and ensure that a checkmark is present before the Online Searches option. If you don't see a checkmark before the Online Searches option, click on that option to place a checkmark there.
Okay, now I feel worse. I have no "online search" option on my view dropdown menu. I am running XP. I saw this tip before and checked. I also reregestered, all to no avail. With respect to the images on the disks--I have only one data disk and one Printshop disk. Again, thanks for your assistance.

Oddly enough, I don't have an "online search" option on the View dropdown menu for my ClickArt 950,000, either. But, I am still able to access the online art.
I believe that I may have misunderstood your original problem.
If you can see the actual thumbnail images - rather than the same generic icon (for all of the images) above the words "Available Online" - you are properly connected to the online art. All you have to do to get an image is to click on the image and then click on the Export button (or right click on an image and then click on Export when the menu drops down). When the Export window opens, you will be given the option to save the image to any folder on the hard drive that you choose.
The only drawback to this process is that you can only Export one image at a time.
I have tried what you suggest, and possibly it is working. I say 'possibly' because the quality of the images is pretty low. It looks like they are about 72 dpi, and even though I only want to double the size, it is degrades quite a bit. I work with Photoshop, and I have tried saving them as tiffs and then enlarging them, but to no avail.
So, when I get back from work, I will look for more suggestions and keep trying things.
A brief pause has ensued while I checked to make sure that what I though was happening was indeed happening. Your suggestion does correct the problem. I note that when I export an image, the 'available online' disappears.
