Photos from older Ensigns

Postby lamb07 » Sat Sep 16, 2017 5:41 am

Hello. I'm seeing references to photos in older Ensign articles. Are those stored online digitally? NOT the Gospel art photos - more specifically the photos from articles. There is no pdf download. For example, I'd love to see these photos from https://www.lds.org/new-era/2002/05/the ... h?lang=eng

Thank-you

I gather you are acquainted with the hieroglyphic of a circle surrounding a downward-facing arrow being a download button. Also, for some more recent articles, that button has a PDF option that will allow you to view and/or download the PDF of the original magazine layout. (I had not been acquainted with the meaning of that hieroglyphic until it was recently pointed out to me in response to feedback I sent that original layout PDF would be useful.)

Ahhhhh, found it! From that article page, if you click on the blue 'May 2002' link toward the top of the page, it will take you to the table-of-contents page for the May 2002 issue of the New Era. Immediately above the list of articles, on the right-hand edge of the table, there is a similar hieroglyphic. From that button, the 'text' option will let you download a PDF of the whole issue, which includes the pictures and everything else in the original layout. The pictures might not have the highest resolution, but at least they're there. You might get different resolution of the pictures with different PDF viewers.

On a somewhat related topic, during or shortly after completion of construction of the Nauvoo Temple, Deseret Book sold a CD that contained time lapses of the construction (IIRC, including a spider caught in the webcam). I don't know whether Deseret Book still has it in new condition, but it might be available on the online used market. I don't recall whether the CD also contained pictures other than from the actual construction itself.

Why are none of the pictures showing up... the online magazines feel empty and not as powerful with the pictures missing. There’s a reason why they have pictures in magazines and books. Please find a way to bring g them back.

Where are you seeing them missing? Depending on the time era they're from or the medium, there's likely a reason they're missing.

I don't know whether it's still there, but some time ago there was a way to view a PDF of a whole issue of a magazine. The PDFs always included the pictures--if there's still a way to find the PDFs.
