Viewing Images and Maps on Origins.net
Origins.net images are TIFF format. Browsers require a plug-in or add-on to display these images. Without a plug-in or add-on you will be unable to view images in your browser.
Origins.net currently has two image viewing methods available - Origins.net Java ImageViewer, and AlternaTIFF. See details below on how to set your Image Viewing Preference to one of these methods.
Note: From June 2012 all new Origins.net image collections, plus British Origins Image Library, Irish Origins Image Library, and Elphin Census Parish Lists are only viewable using the Origins.net ImageViewer. If you have AlternaTIFF selected, new collections and publications will be displayed using Origins.net ImageViewer.
