What is a Lightbox?
A Lightbox is a way for users to organize and save image selections for potential use in personal projects. Lightboxes can be viewed during subsequent visits to the site. Lightbox selections may be e-mailed to associates or printed, copied, rearranged or annotated.

How to use Lightboxes
Users who have signed in may add images to a Lightbox by clicking on the “add to Lightbox” icon beneath the thumbnails. To delete images from a Lightbox, select the “delete from Lightbox” icon beneath the thumbnail in the Lightbox. Contents of Lightboxes may be viewed either at the bottom of a Search Results page or by clicking the Lightbox tab in the main navigation bar at the top of any page. Images may only be added to or removed from the currently active Lightbox. The active Lightbox is displayed in the drop down selection box located in the upper left of a Lightbox page.

Lightbox options:
  • View - allows the user to view the currently selected Lightbox
  • Email - allows the user to e-mail the currently active Lightbox.
  • Rename - allows the user to rename the currently active Lightbox.
  • Print - allows the user to view the currently active Lightbox in a printer friendly format
  • Copy - allows the user to create a duplicate Lightbox of the currently active Lightbox
  • Delete - allows the user to delete the currently active Lightbox.
Additional Lightbox features for the advanced user may be found under Advanced Lightbox Manager.

Advanced Lightbox Manager

This Advanced Lightbox Manager allows you to create and delete lightboxes, to move and copy images from one lightbox to another (with or without their notes), and to rearrange the images in a lightbox. Navigate to the page by clicking the "move/rearrange" button on any other Advance Lightbox page.
Lightbox Icons
An image that has notes will have this icon underneath it. Hovering the mouse over the icon will display the notes. If you click on the notes icon, then a pop-up window will appear allowing you to change the notes for the image. (see Adding Notes below)
An image that doesn't have notes will have this icon underneath it. If you click on the notes icon, then a pop-up window will appear allowing you to change the notes for the image. (see Adding Notes below)
If you click on the preview icon, then a pop-up window will appear allowing you to preview the lighbox image with it's image id, caption and notes.

  • Notes - allows the user to add notes to the Lightbox and specific images.
    Adding Notes
    You may add comments either to a Lightbox or to individual images within a Lightbox.
    · Lightbox notes - notes may be added to an active Lightbox by clicking link entitled Lightbox notes at the top left of a Lightbox page.
    · Image notes - notes may be added to individual images in an active Lightbox by clicking Notes below each image.
    • Print - allows the user to view the currently active Lightbox in a printer friendly format.

    Printing a Lightbox
    To print a Lightbox, access the drop down menu identified as "Images" at the top right of a Lightbox page and select "Printer" from the bottom of the listed options. A new window will appear with the Lightbox images arranged in a printer friendly format and a "print" button in the upper right corner. Click the "Print" button to print the Lightbox images then close the window to proceed.

    • Copy - allows the user to copy all or selected images from one Lightbox to a new or existing Lightbox.

      Copying images from one lightbox to another
      Select a lightbox on the left and another one on the right. Check the images on the left you want to copy to the right, and click "copy -->". You can do it from right to left by checking the images on the right and clicking "<-- copy". If "include notes" is checked, then the notes will be copied. Otherwise, the copied images will not have notes. If you copy an image to a lightbox that already has the image, then the notes field will be overwritten.

      Copying comments from one lightbox to another
      The comments for the lightboxs are shown below the images. Click "<-- comments" to copy the comments from right to left, or click "comments -->" to copy them from left to right. You can also update the comments by clicking the "save" button.

    • Email - allows the user to e-mail the currently active Lightbox.

      Sharing a Lightbox
      For those wishing to allow other users to work cooperatively on a Lightbox selection, you may do so by e-mailing a Lightbox and checking the option identified as "Allow recipient to make a Lightbox copy". This function allows recipients registered to use the website to create an exact copy of your Lightbox which may then be modified, annotated or rearranged. Many find this to be a very useful tool.

    • Move - allows the user to move all or selected images from one Lightbox to a second Lightbox, or within a lightbox.

      Moving images from one lightbox to another -
      This is the same as copying images, except that the images will be moved from one lightbox to another instead of being copied (deleted from the original lightbox).

    • Rearrange - allows users using Internet Explorer users (Netscape does not support this feature) to rearrange the order of display of images in a Lightbox by means of a simple drag and drop technique.

      Rearrange within the lightbox -
      To move an image, select it by clicking it once with the mouse. Then without holding the mouse button down, drag the image to it's new location. Then click the mouse again to place the image. The image will always be placed to the right of the image you move it to, unless you move it to the first image. You may use the scroll bar while moving an image (drag the image to the scroll bar, click and move the scroll, and the image will reappear). However, you cannot drag an image from one lightbox to another lightbox. To save the rearranged lightbox, click "save". If you select another screen resolution without saving the lightbox, you will not lose your changes. If you select another lightbox without saving the first, then the changes will be lost.

    • Remove - allows the user to remove checked images from the currently active Lightbox.

      Removing images from a lightbox
      Select a lightbox from one of the select boxes, check the images you want to remove, and click "remove selected".

Pricing Calculator

Fill out all required fields in the Pricing Calculator that are described in detail below:

Usage Category: First, select the general usage for the image, i.e. advertising, brochure & marketing, corporate, displays, electronic, products & packaging or publishing.

Specific Use: Then, select the media in which the image will be used, such as poster, brochure, press kit, billboard, etc.

Distribution Area: Select whether the image will be used locally, regionally or nationally. You must also provide the name of the location where it will be used.

Size: The image size is related to the size of the final page size, i.e. if the image covers ¼ of the page, the image size is ¼ page no matter the size of the ad in which it appears

Placement: Select the placement of the image on the final product or packaging.

Total Circulation: Insertions x Print Run

  • If you're producing a printed piece, this should be the total number of copies that will be printed.
  • If the image will appear in a newspaper or magazine, this should be the circulation of one edition of the periodical.
  • If the image will appear in multiple publications and/or with multiple insertions, determine the total circulation by adding the circulations (print runs) of each publication the image will appear in, then multiply the number of times (insertions) the image will appear in each publication. See examples.

Duration of Image Use: This is the amount of time that the product featuring the licensed image will be in circulation. For example, and ad may appear just one day while a brochure may be distributed over a period of one year.

Start Date: Select the date when the product featuring the licensed image will begin appearing in public.

Industry: Select the industry in which the photograph will appear.

End User Client: Please type the name of the client (your client) for which this photo is being used. If you are the end client, please enter your company name here.

Project Description: Please provide the specifics of the usage so that we can confirm the final usage, i.e. name of newspaper or magazine where ad will appear, name of textbook, a website URL etc.

Price is based on one-time non exclusive use only. This means should you or your client prefer exclusive use by region or industry (or both) please contact us, instead of using this pricing calculator. Exclusive use of an image substantially increases the licensing fee and one of our Account Supervisors will be in touch to discuss final pricing with you.

You may recalculate and update the price as many times as you like.
