Artstor, the digital image database of more than two million images, spent the summer giving itself a complete makeover. The new platform now has a completely different look with many changed functionalities.

New features include:

  • a full screen IIIF* image viewer with side-by-side comparison mode
  • simplified image group sharing
  • enhanced advanced search
  • increased web accessibility for users with disabilities
  • improved mobile friendliness
