A Welcome Addition to the VI Family.

The newest addition to the Vital Imagery Ltd. team is our creative dynamo, a pursuer of many hobbies and interests. Corinne Hoy, known affectionately in the office as Koala for her diminutive size, has taken on the task of Content Manager. Her tasks include the organizing, processing and filtering of content, as well as fixing any issues before the images are added to the site.

"I've long had an interest in photography and image editing, so this position is a perfect fit," said Corinne. "I enjoy every aspect of the job, even the ones that some might consider a bit tedious, like fixing bad rasters."

One of the best parts, she said, is being among the first to see the wide variety of new images provided by the talented vendors each week.

Not one to shy away from trying something new, she is also excited by the challenge of working in a not completely familiar field. "The job has opened my eyes to many things. I haven't done much in the way of terminal use or computer scripts prior so that was a bit of a learning curve."

The busy mother of an energetic toddler has a diverse educational background, having thrown her creative energies and talents into a number of different fields, from theatre to cosmetology. But she is also a talented artist, a fact that provided the incentive for adding another task to her work responsibilities. "I expressed some interest in creating images and it was mentioned that it would be great to focus on education content, such as alphabets and numbers."

Corinne, however, had hoped to incorporate her love of animals into the projects. With her first collection, she managed to do just that... AND please the boss. You can check it out here.

From Our FAQ:

How do I remove the white box (background) from the image I want?

JPG files will always have a background since that type of file does not support transparency. In some cases the PNG and GIF files on our website will already have a transparent background. If you download one of the vector file formats you should be able to resave the image in your image editing software without any background. Note: you need to either have a Subscription Plus or a Professional Subscription in order to download vector images from iCLIPART. Most image editing software will let you remove the background of an image manually, and there are many tutorials on Google on how to accomplish this.
