You can generate URLs to link to images and image groups within the Artstor Workspace.  These URLs can be shared with others who have an Artstor user account via email, syllabus, or embedding in an LMS or course Website.

Please note: These links will only work when shared with users from your own institution who are either on campus or logged into the Digital Library remotely.
