Research Thursday: How to export groups as Powerpoint presentations in Artstor

Artstor is an image database featuring a range of images from some of the world’s leading museums, photo archives, scholars, and artists. In a previous Research Thursday post, we covered how to create groups of images in Artstor. So let’s say you’ve created your first group of images in Artstor. Now what? Maybe you want to save all of the images in one place or maybe you want to use the group of images for a course assignment. You can now download groups in Artstor as Powerpoint presentations.

  1. First, create a group. View to our previous post about creating groups in Artstor if you need a refresher.
  2. Next, view your groups in Artstor and select a group to export.

  6. Finally, agree to the Terms and Conditions. Artstor users may download up to 2000 images in 120 day period. For groups larger than 150 images, only the first 150 images will export to Powerpoint. If your group is larger than 150 images, we recommend separating your group into smaller subsets. After you agree to the terms and conditions, Artstor will export your files to your desktop.
