How to use the Lightbox

What is a Lightbox ?

A Lightbox stores selected images from searches. It is a very handy feature for selecting images for a project and presenting these images to clients.

You can print the Lightbox and also generate a PDF document of a Lightbox to email to clients and others for final selection and approval.

You have access to your own personal lightbox as soon as you are logged in as a registered user.

You will notice the Lightbox button will be added to the Main Navigation Toolbar. (see above)


Adding Images to your Lightbox

Below each thumbnail image in the Library View and in the detailed image view, a Lightbox button will appear after you have logged in.

  • You can add an image to you lightbox by clicking on this link. The square will change from an outline to a solid block as shown above.
  • To remove an image from the lightbox, just click on the link again.


View, Print and e-mail your Lightbox

By clicking on the Lightbox button on the Main Navigation Toolbar you will be able to view all the images that you have added to your lightbox.
