Happy New Year! ARTstor tips and tools!

Happy new year and welcome back! Lots to catch you up on!

ARTstor has a few new nifty tips and tools. They now have ARTstor mobile accessible from iPhones, iPads, or the iPod Touch. Features of the mobile version include searching images by keyword and viewing in list form with options of tapping to enlarge or rotate, or open info about the image. You can also view saved image groups but the coolest addition is the flashcard view which will let you see the image and then flip if over to see the info about it. You can use this like a flashcard to study for exams! See more about about ARTstor Mobile.

Another feature useful for exam prepping, is printing entire saved image groups. ARTstor will print saved image groups in list form with large thumbnails and the associated info for each image, making it easy to use as a study handout. You can also save this printable handout as a web page by saving as an HTML file from your browser. See it on ARTstor's news.

To see how to create an ARTstor account, save image groups, and do many other useful things as a Texas State student, faculty, or staff, see my other ARTstor posts on Art & Design Inforama or view my tutorial Creating URls and Power Points from ARTstor Image Groups.

If you would like me to give an ARTstor workshop, please email me, Tara, or leave a comment here. I am trying to gauge interest.

More new posts to come!
