Order Images for Publication
The Toledo Museum of Art sells both high- and low-resolution images of works of art in its collection for publication. The images are supplied as either 300 or 600 dpi TIFF files, although we can convert those to low-resolution JPEG files for use in web sites and electronic presentations. We supply the images via download from our FTP site.
Requests for high resolution images for the news media should go through our Communications Office.
To purchase an image for publication, complete the form below. We will supply you with a price quote. If the price is acceptable, we will email you an invoice and an image use contract. Once we have received payment and the signed contract, we will upload the image to our FTP site and email you the download instructions.
Please note that all sales are final.
Note that we must add a $20 international bank processing fee to the cost for non-U.S. clients who pay by check or wire transfer. The processing fee is waived for payments made by credit card.
You may also submit your request, including all the required information, via fax at (419) 254-5089, or write to:

What is LUNA?
LUNA is the art/art history digital image database of the Toledo Museum of Art and the University of Toledo, with currently more than 275,000 images available to search and download that directly support the UT curriculum.
LUNA is also a dynamic instruction tool, allowing registered users to create interactive presentations with features such as zooming in on high-resolution images during presentations, instant access to image data, and the integration of images from Flickr. LUNA users also have the ability to export presentations to PowerPoint for use without a network connection. Other exciting options available with LUNA include saving personal annotations with images, and creating unique URLs to share search results and presentations with others in the AAU community.
Faculty can submit requests to Julia Hayes at any time to have new images digitized locally and uploaded to LUNA to support their specific courses.
Presentations created with LUNA can be repurposed every semester, saving faculty valuable time when preparing course materials. Students can also access images and presentations before and after lectures with LUNA, increasing student involvement and making class time more productive.
