How do I download/export digital images to work with?

All digital images are downloadable as low-resolution JPGs, which is an appropriate file format and size for many papers and presentations. If you require a higher resolution image or an uncompressed TIFF file, please contact rdc@lists.reed.edu or visit the Visual Resources Collection in Library 42.

Browse or search to find an image you want to use. Click on the thumbnail to view the larger image. Click on the "download image" link (above the tool bar). In the new window that opens, specify an image size and click the "Download" buttton. The image title will be used as the file name.
Citation information
Only the image will be exported, and not the information about the image (other than the title). You may want to save a link to the record: click on the "reference url" link above the tool bar, and copy and paste the URL into your notes or bibliography to flesh out later. Or, you can save a copy of the html page to help build your citation later: from the browser (Firefox or Safari) toolbar, select "Save page as," name the file with the same title you used for the image file, and save it to the Desktop.
ARTstor
Browse or search to find an image you want to use. Double click on the thumbnail to view the larger image. Click on the "Save Current View" icon (on the far right-hand side of the tool bar).

Citation information
When you save/export an ARTstor image, an html file is also exported containing information about the image. You can either save this html file to help you build your citation later, or you can save and export citations from within ARTstor. To save and export citations within ARTstor: click the thumbnails of the images you want to select, then click the "Tools" link on the top navigation menu, and select "Save citations for selected images." When you are done saving citations, click "View and export citations," and a window will open with your saved citations. From here you can email your citations to yourself, export to EndNote, or use the "View and save citations" option to generate a text file or html page which you can save or copy and paste into your notes or bibliography.
