Using digital images for interdisciplinary teaching and learning
Whether you are online using the Image Viewer or offline using the OIV or Powerpoint, ARTstor provides helpful suggestions for your presentations.
Offline Presentations - PowerPoint
Downloaded images from ARTstor are saved locally as jpeg files. They can be inserted into any presentation software, such as PowerPoint. As a registered user, you can batch download image groups of 100 images or less directly to PowerPoint.
Offline Image Viewer
The Offline Image Viewer (OIV) is ARTstor's presentation software. Once you download it to your computer, you do not have to be logged in to ARTstor to present. The OIV gives you two presentation options:
Image Palette Presentation: zoom and pan images during presentation, switch from single pictures to side by side comparisons when you choose, and call up image information.
Slideshow Presentation: create slides, choose between static and zoomable images, and input text. This format is compatible with Powerpoint.

Please refer to ARTstor's guide on how to properly cite images obtained from an image database.
This guide also discusses how to export citations to EndNote, our online citation management program.
