How to Download a digital Image file

You will require special software to view the downloaded files.

The materials available to download have been converted to a digital file. In order to minimise the time it would take to download a large digital file, the images have been compressed to a JPEG format.

If you are having problems downloading please check with your administrator to see if there are download restrictions in place with your network or ISP before contacting Technical Help .

Using Zip, a public domain software product that uses non-lossy compression, the images are compressed so that they can be downloaded directly to your desktop in less time.

You will require software to unzip (expand) the images you have downloaded from the site. Using WinZip™ or StuffIt Expander™ you can expand the file back to its original file size. If you don't have WinZip or StuffIt Expander™ you can download the software from the Internet for free.

Click here to download WinZip™ for Windows™.
