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
