Heading off for summer break? Did you know you can still access all the features and tools of the Digital Library remotely with a registered user account – it’s Artstor on the go!

square_logo (2)A new version of Artstor Mobile is now available, which resolves an issue with the zoom feature for the mobile site and the Android app.

Please note that the functionality of the zoom feature on Artstor mobile has changed slightly with this release: The zoom button now opens a slightly larger image in a new window (an app window for Android users or a browser window on Apple products). Pinch and spread for further zoom detail (may not be available on some mobile devices). Navigate to the previous window to access search, browse, and home menu buttons.

More information on installing the Android app is available on our support site.

  • Log in to your registered Artstor account
  • Double-click on an image thumbnail to open it in the image viewer
  • In zoom modeclick on the image to create your desired thumbnail.

Now you can:

  1. Print the image detail by clicking

We are happy to announce that we have released an update to the Artstor Digital Library with these new features:

  • Embedded Metadata  Individual downloaded images now include embedded metadata instead of a separate HTML file. The embedded metadata schema is IPTC and VRAXMP-formatted. You can learn more about these schemas from the IPTC and VRAXMP websites.
  • Audio Files Audio files in the Digital Library no longer require QuickTime for playback. Users can now select any plugin to play audio files in their browsers.

If you experience any difficulties, clear your cache and restart your browser. If this does not resolve the issue, please contact User Services at userservices@artstor.org.
