I recently noticed a new and improved format for alamy's lightboxes.  Didn't see any discussion yet, unless I missed it.  But I think they look quite good.

I noticed it as well. My lightboxes used to be easy to scroll down on the same page, now they spread over 3 pages.

Is there an easy way to create a url of a lightbox?

 

If I click on the Actions Box, and click share, I can send an email to myself - which contains the link......

 

It would be good if you could just copy the link directly, without having to send yourself an email!

 

Share to Twitter could also be useful!

On the screen that shows all of your lightboxes, there is a pull down 'Actions' menu on the right-hand side for each lightbox. You have the option of 'Share' in this menu which allows you to email a link to someone. Type in your own email address and the email you receive contains a hyperlink that you can click on. You can then retrieve the actual URL from the browser address bar when you've followed the hyperlink... all a bit convoluted but..

Yes - that's what I do...... It just seems a bit clunky, and a few unnecessary steps!

What exactly are Lightboxes?

And how do they help with sales?

They are selections of images, usually around a theme, that you can then share with others, potential customers perhaps. Buyers can also create them and Alamy also share them from time to time on various topical, potentially saleable subjects.

Are these your own or are they a collection of items from all Alamy sellers?

Thanks for the info.

I should be so lucky, no they are Alamy's selections across the library created by Alamy themselves to invite submissions of a similar nature, or I suppose possibly to advertise their (our) wares to potential buyers. I would imagine that if it hadn't been for the pandemic they would be putting these out quite regularly.
