CD-ROM or Downloadable  Images
 
Most of the antique graphic images have been  compressed into a common image compression standard known as JPEG, in high-resolution. Some however are also in BMO. Both are MAC and PC compatible...

What is JPEG?
JPEG (pronounced "jay-peg") is a standardized image compression mechanism. JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, the original name of the committee that wrote the standard. JPEG is designed for compressing either full-color or gray-scale images of natural, real-world scenes. It works well on photographs, naturalistic artwork, and similar material.

How do I view these Images?
Most computer systems already have software installed to view these images. Also, many web browsers are configured to open JPEG images, but restrict the ability to edit the image. If you do not have software for viewing JPEG files or require a more robust environment to edit these images, we recommend using one of the listed programs below:

Microsoft Windows 9x/NT/2000
