Gallery of Images

This page has links to a range of image files which are all in JPEG format.

JPEG (Joint Photographic Expert Group) files have the extension .jpg after the name.

They can be viewed in a Web browser or used in a print document.

If you wish to place them into a word-processed article you may need to convert them into another format.

JPEG files are much smaller than other picture files, and so can be downloaded very quickly.

To save an image for use offline, use the right mouse button, and choose the Save picture as menu option.

You can then specify where the file is to be saved.
