What is a lightbox 

Lightbox is helpful when you want to make a selection of images. All images you rate as 5 stars can be automatically added to a lightbox. Lightbox is also helpful to request a specific quote for specific usage if you cant find it via “buy license” or “buy download” option, or when you want to make an offer for a large selection of images etc. 

 


How do lightboxes work for anonymous not registered users ?

A new lightbox is created as soon as a you click for the first time on an Add to lightbox button. To be able to access the lightbox later on, you must save it to your account (i.e. create an account on your site if needed).

Once a lightbox is saved, it receives a unique URL and can be shared.

If you registered an account within a website , you  can save and manage multiple lightboxes. From the lightbox page on your client’s access part of the website, you can switch easily between lightboxes you have created, and lightboxes that you (or other visitors) have shared with you by email.

When you are as a logged-in client share a lightbox, the recipient must log in to edit the lightbox (everyone with the link can view the lightbox).

When sharing a lightbox, you as a a logged-in client can choose to keep the lightbox "read-only". This way, the person with whom the lightbox is shared can view but not modify the lightbox.

 


What are ratings ?
