Research Thursday: Saving Magnified Images in Artstor

An important feature of the Artstor tool is the ability to zoom in to examine images in greater detail. Artstor also provides the functionality to download magified sections once you have zoomed in to a specific part of the image. For example, perhaps you would like to examine an illustration from a medieval manuscript in greater detail. Follow these instructions to download a zoomed in section of the image.

  1. Use the zoom icons in the top left corner or zoom in with your mouse or keypad. Zoom in to your area of interest.
  2. Click the Download button in the menu on the right side of the page (desktop view) or below the image (mobile view).
  3. Select Download detail view.
