For sighted people, pictures provide an important mechanism of communication; they are also a valuable learning resource. This paper discusses these issues in context to their use in developing and promoting online pictorial pedagogy through the medium of computers. As the size of an image collection grows, some form of picture repository is needed in order to store, manage, and retrieve images. In this context, the role of a digital object repository is discussed and a case study involving the use of a very large image collection is briefly described.
