What are stock photographs?
photographs are existing photographs that can be used for print and web
ads, in books and magazines, in news, on websites, in brochures and in a large number of custom applications, according to
the licensing terms to which the photographer and buyer have agreed.
Using an image that already exists saves the purchaser the time and
expense of a custom photo shoot. Please read our Licensing Agreement

The lightbox feature is only available to registered account-holders. It allows you to create a named collection of photos (or 'lightbox') in which you can store, manage, and share images of interest to you. Lightboxes are designed to help you get organized. When you find an image on our website that you like, you can save it to a lightbox you've created and continue searching. No need to write down the image number. Most people use lightboxes to store images they're interested in relating to a particular event or client.
Once you've created a lightbox and added images to it, you can remove images that no longer interest you, email the lightbox to other people and much more!
