“Our fine art and design students love the ability to open up CAMIO images in high resolution and full-colour, and the ability to search across different art media such as paintings, drawings or sculpture perfectly addresses the interdisciplinary way in which most of our students now work. They are always amazed at the quality of the images they can get from CAMIO.”
