We are pleased to announce that a new version of the Offline Image Viewer (OIV) is now available. This new version, version 3.0, includes many enhancements – all of which are in response to your feedback:

  • ability to open more than one instance of OIV at a time,
  • ability to edit zoomable slides,
  • compatibility with Windows Vista,
  • ability to drag and drop slides/images across presentations,
  • improved rendering of line drawn images,
  • ability to rotate images,
  • ability to upload local images directly to categories within a Personal Collection,
  • additional printing options.

OIV 3.0 can be downloaded from the ARTstor Digital Library after logging in to your ARTstor account. Installation instructions can be found in our online help.

Please note that OIV 3.0 will require Java 1.5, as well as OS X 10.4 for Mac users. Also, files created in OIV 3.0 will not be backwards compatible with earlier versions of the software. However, users will have the option to export their OIV 3.0 presentation files into a legacy format that can be opened in older versions of OIV.
