but barriers include
|- agreements with
|- fear of copyright
|- loss of revenue

for access to metadata, thumbnails, medium sized images; for use in LMS, web
|- Export to PPT,
HTML (in Luna, image size depends on permissions)
|- ARTstor: must use
their viewer [if you are not satisfied with the size of the downloadable

|- AP Photo Archive:
can download jpg with text
|-LionShare: more open but with options to restrict
|Process for user is
different depending on the image source.
|Image quality is
variable once it leaves its native environment.
