For those of you who are not fond of the Getty website interface, I set up a gallery of HR color scans of the Getty on Google Art Project with the folios in the correct order.

Folio 31V (staff and dagger) is curiously missing, though.

Looks like someone solved the storage system used by Google Art Project and extracted all of the extraordinary high res Getty images stored therein. They're all currently located in Wikimedia Commons (where they're likely to stay forever, given WMF's strong position on the public domain), and may be paged through in the gallery or simply downloaded in bulk. They appear to be listed out of order, probably due to the GAP influence, but being an authorized File Mover on the Commons I'll see about correcting that at some point this week.

Oh, and here's the high-res image of 33v: http://www.getty.edu/art/gettyguide/art ... obj=143517 (haz click "zoom in")

Or 31v, as the Getty makes it for some reason.

Actually, it looks like the images on the Getty site zoom in to twice the size of those on Google/Wikimedia Commons, approximately 6000x9000. No download function, but if you're looking for detail that's where I'd go.

The Fiore article on Wiktenauer (see above) has been updated to include complete translations of the Pisani Dossi, Getty and Morgan (and to no longer include Vadi); there's also a transcription of the Paris, but no accompanying translation (yet).

The label of each paragraph in the four transcriptions links to a page where you can view full page scans (alongside the transcription), which might satisfy all the people who have complained that we only have one to two images per play.

The J. Paul Getty Museum has recently decided to offer direct downloads for their copy of Fior di Battaglia through their Open Content Program. Navigate to each image and you'll find, in addition to the zoom-in link, a link to a download page. The images offered are ~3000x4500, same as those on Google Art Project and WikiMedia Commons, but I actually suspect now that the 6000x9000 images found in the zoom window are just upscaled from those scans.

So if you've held off downloading the scans available on the Commons due to moral or legal concerns, you can now get them with a clean conscience directly from the source: http://www.getty.edu/art/gettyguide/art ... rtobj=1706

Furthermore, and this will be a boon to Fiore researchers everywhere, the Getty makes the following statement about all Open Content Program images (including these):

"Open content images can be used for any purpose without first seeking permission from the Getty." (Source: http://www.getty.edu/about/opencontent.html)

A good day indeed.

Hello,

I noted that the scans of the Getty MS are available via Wiktenauer and are roughly 3,180 × 4,420 pixels, file size: 4.74 MB. These scans come in as 96 dpi.

The scans available direct from the Getty can be downloaded and are of the same size but are 300dpi and 16MB roughly, per page.

I take it these two sources are fundamentally the same, in that the larger file size prints higher quality on a smaller size and the smaller file prints on a larger area.

Do you know if the Getty scans have been collected or are downloadable as a single zip file?

You can add more dpi with photo-editing software like Paint.NET.
