Viewing and Saving Images from This Site
This site uses MrSID (Multi-Resolution Seamless Image Database) technology for delivering on-demand scalable images. This technology allows you to zoom in or out on an area of the image that you are viewing. Images are stored in .sid format on our server but are delivered to your computer in the form of JPEG files.
To save an image right click (or if you're using a Mac
and a button-less mouse, control/click) and select "save
image as..." from the pop up menu. In the save dialog
box you need to rename the image.
JPEG images are viewable in any browser and in most graphics
software such as Adobe Photoshop.
