Understanding Lightboxes

101416_lightbox_rd
Lightboxes are a great way to organize your PixelSquid objects for different projects or group large amounts of objects for easier navigation. Lightboxes are very easy to use and manage, and only have a few minor limitations:

Your account can have a total of 25 individual lightboxes. This includes two permanent lightboxes:

Purchases Lightbox: These are objects that would have been in your lightbox prior to subscriptions (10.17.16) and/or objects you may have bought a la carte. Objects in this lightbox cannot be deleted. If you did not have objects before subscriptions and/or have not purchased a la carte objects, you will not see this Lightbox.

Photoshop Lightbox: This is the default lightbox that allows you to immediately start adding new object to use in Photoshop.
The remaining 23 User Lightboxes can be created as you need them.
Each lightbox can contain a total of 150 objects.

Using Lightboxes While Browsing

You can add objects to a single or multiple lightboxes while browsing the PixelSquid catalog. The controls are similar for both the search page and product page.

 

  1. Hovering initiates the 360 spin.
  2. Below the object is the Add to Lightboxes button.
  3. Clicking the button initiates a dropdown with a few lightbox controls.
  4. You can create new lightboxes here in the dropdown. Click add new, give the new lightboxes a name and click the +.
  5. You can add an object to one or multiple lightboxes by clicking the name of each lightbox. You’ll notice a checkmark appears. This means the object has been added.

Add to Lightbox on Product Page

 

  1. Clicking the Add to Lightbox button initiates a dropdown with a few lightbox controls.
  2. You can create new lightboxes here in the dropdown. Click add new, give the new lightboxes a name and hit enter.
  3. You can add an object to one or multiple lightboxes by clicking the name of each lightbox. You’ll notice a checkmark appears. This means the object has been added.
  4. Clicking the button again closes the dropdown.

 

Managing Your Lightboxes

My Lightboxes in Navigation

  1. Managing your lightboxes can be done quickly and easily by clicking the My Lightboxes link in the navbar at the top of any page. This will bring you to the My Lightboxes page, where you’ll find all of your lightboxes organized by latest created.
