In response to your requests, we now have a downloadable version of LensWork Extended!
What's the difference between the downloadable and the disc version? Nothing — in terms of content. The only difference is that the file you download will be only the PDF documents; when you click on the audio or video links the media will play as it streams down from our website. (On the disc version, the audio and video is included on the disc — hence the 3-4 gigabyte disc size.) By streaming the audio and video over the Internet, the image pages alone are a reasonable size to download without having any compromises in content. (For example, LensWork Extended #88 is a 258Mb download.)
Purchase the individual issue of LensWork Extended via download from our online store. You will immediately be provided a download link.
Click on the link and a single download ZIP file will be copied to your computer.
Once the download is completed, unzip the download file to a convenient location on your computer's hard drive. (Just double click on it and follow the directions.)
Open the main PDF using Adobe Reader 9 or Acrobt version 9
Please note that the media links (audio and video) in this version of LensWork Extended will require high speed internet connection to play.
