Search tips:

  • Establish an account the first time you use ARTstor. First click on launch and then click on the phrase on the top left hand portion of the page immediately below that text that says “Thank you for using ARTstor.
  • You can find the images you want to put into a group by searching or browsing to display images on the thumbnail page. Select the images for your group by single-clicking on the thumbnail of each image you want to include. As you select images, the thumbnails will become highlighted in yellow. After selecting images, click on the image groups toolbar button. The resulting drop-down menu will display two options for saving images: "Save selected images to new group" or "Append selected images to existing group." Use the first option to create a new group with the images that you have selected. Choose the second to add selections to a group that you have already created.
  • You can reorder images in ARTstor by dragging them and dropping them using the mouse.
