Could someone please tell me where I can find uncopyrighted playing card graphics for use in programming computer card games?

I thought you'd say that. It wouldn't be hard to draw most of them yourself, such as 10 of hearts and such. It would be the royal cards and the back of them that would be tough. Are you sure there is a copyright on images on cards? They all look the same to me, so wouldn't they all be breaching copyright?

Using the windows ones would probably be WORSE for copyright than scanning them. Do you want to mess with Microsoft?

Try this:

I don't know if it's uncopyrighted, but seeing as how it is being given away for free, it's worth a shot.

It is freeware. Does that mean you can do whatever you want with the files? I'm sure that if you actually downloaded the file (which I didn't) it would tell you.

I didn't download it either. Freeware doesn't inherently mean you can do anything you like. If it doesn't say anything in the license agreement, I'd just send the creators an e-mail and see what they have to say.

Is your game going to be released or put on the web? If it is just for your personal use then it doesn't matter anyway.

Drawing cards isn't too hard in the first place(just the face cards are a challenge) just draw a card, put the number on it, then use the 4 card ascii symbols(use charmap to see what they are) to make the symbols, and that's pretty much it, except for facecards. For a shortcut to facecards, you can use your games logo(or the logos of the sponsors to your games), rather than the traditional faces on them..

you´re best off making your own, playing card manufacturers are pretty serious about their ip (one of our games had a licensed set of cards, wasn´t cheap).
