Download bigger ARTstor images

We are very pleased to announce that over 95% of the images in the ARTstor Digital Library are now available for download at 1024 pixels on the long side. (they used to be available for download at only 400 pixels on the long side).

In response to feedback from our user community, and as a result of the relationships that we have been building with content owners, we are now making available approximately 95% of the images in the Digital Library available for larger download at 1024 pixels on the long side. This new download capacity is part of ARTstor’s ongoing effort to facilitate broad access to digital images for teaching and scholarship. Users will be permitted to download these large JPEG images for use in classroom presentation and for other noncommercial, educational uses in the software environment of their choice. Users can also continue to download images at up to 3200 pixels for offline presentations by using the ARTstor Offline Image Viewer (OIV).

The ARTstor Digital Library includes more than 80 collections totaling more than 700,000 images. To use ARTstor, sign up for an account on any computer on the Academy’s campus. Once you’ve done that, you can access your account from anywhere. If you have any questions, ask at the library.
