New Lightbox Features Released for Organizing and Sharing Pictures

If you haven’t seen how simple our new photo lightboxes are to use for organizing and sharing your picture collections then you should check out this 1 minute video tutorial on how to create photo collections.

Our creative team has been busy using this new feature to create stunning picture lightboxes of Cutcaster contributor’s artwork.

Creating an Image Lightbox using Cutcaster Photos and Clip art

Here are two very short videos to help you understand how the new lightbox system works. We have a few more tweaks to make to the feature but the first video shows you how you should be
creating a new image lightbox and then second video shows you how you can add an image to a photo lightbox.

We will be releasing shortly the ability to delete lightboxes, set them to public vs private and also the ability to easily send them via the site instead of copying and pasting the URL into an email to someone. Hope these help and please pass along your feedback regarding the lightbox functionality.

Introducing Lightboxes – Good-bye Clipfolders

From this point forward Cutcaster is re-branding the Clipfolders and calling them “Lightboxes” which is an industry standard term that photo buyers are used to seeing.

What is a Lightbox?

A lightbox at Cutcaster is a customized folder that lets a user organize digital photos and illustrations that they would eventually like to download or share with a colleague/friend. Any files can be assigned to a viewable lightbox folder by subject, for later convenience, or used to compile unrelated photos for a specific project layout. Lightboxes also allow photo buyers and graphic designers to show clients options for a project in one simple uncluttered folder.

Use the lightboxes to store a group of photos that you would like to eventually purchase or send to a colleague/friend to review. Lightboxes can be set to private or public depending on your purpose for using them.

I hope the change of names doesn’t confuse anyone and hope this makes using Cutcaster easier.
