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.
