New Image Clusters Feature in ARTstor

ARTstor just added two new features which should make searching easier. The new features will appear as links represented by icons beneath image thumbnails.

This is the Image Cluster icon. Clicking this will bring you to a collection of images related to the item you're currently viewing. They may be details, alternate views or duplicates.

This is the Associated Images icon. Clicking this will bring you to a group of images representing the most often used images associated with the original record. For example, if you click on the icon underneath a lithographic representation of the Sistine Chapel, you'll be taken to an image group containing images of the painted ceilings and details of this large work.
