Chapter 15 - How The LightBox works
The LightBox interface is designed to be extremely user friendly and most users should need no instruction. However, if you find that anyone has a problem, here are instructions for use.
GETTING TO THE LIGHTBOX
Click the link to select images at the top of the website page. Then click the link to select an image gallery to view.
The interface consists of a box on the left containing thumbnails, and a box on the right entitled 'selection' The viewer can choose which Image Gallery to view from the drop down list above the thumbnails.
When viewing thumbnails the magnifying glass icon under each can be clicked to view them larger. When viewing large images there are next and previous buttons to move
To select an image, the thumbnail is dragged to the selection box on the right and dropped. To remove an image, the red 'x' under the thumbnail is clicked.
MARKING IMAGES AS FAVOURITES
When a thumbnail is enlarged it will show the title and caption underneath as well as a button 'mark as favourite'. When clicked the thumbnail is surrounded by a bright green background. This is useful to keep track of which images you like best in the process of selecting favourites. When the final selection is submitted any marked as favourites are indicated in the selection list. To unmark an image enlarge the thumbnail again and click 'unmark as favourite'.
SAVING AND SUBMITTING A SELECTION
When a selection has been made, click options' above the selected thumbnails. The window will then change to the selection as a page of thumbnails. These can be clicked in order to add a comment to each.
