Create Your Account

You must create an account in order to use a Lightbox or to submit Price Quote Request. Use the New Customer register link at the top right of the site to create an account or to log in. You will be logged off automatically after 30 minutes of site inactivity.

The Account detail section allows you change your name, company, email, and password.

Once you log in you have access to your account information under My Account (Price Quote Request History and Edit Account Information). Please remember to log off of this site for your security. However, you will be logged off automatically after 30 minutes of site inactivity.

Quick Keyword Search

Use the Quick Keyword Search area on the left side of the page to type in a keyword (e.g. cat) and then click the search button. By default the system uses "Match all keywords" for the quick search function. For example, searching for dust mite will return only the images that have the key words dust and mite in their descriptions.

After you have gotten your search results, you can narrow your search by clicking on the link in "To refine the search results..." at the top of the search results page. You will get a new field to add another keyword. The search function will look through only the first search results, and pull out those images that have the added keyword.

Use the Image Detail Page to find keywords that might be useful to you in further searches. Keywords are clickable search links on each detail page, near the bottom.

Advanced Search Page

The Advanced Search Page doesn't use the same algorithms as the Quick Keyword Search area. It offers options allowing you to choose which operand you want to use for your searches.

There are three options available:

  • Match at least one keyword
    The system will return results for any image that contain any of the input keywords in its properties. For example, entering house pest will return results with either house or pest. Around 595 images have either house or pest in their description.

  • Match all keywords
    The system will only return results for any image that contain all input keywords in its properties. For example there are about 52 images that contain both the keywords house and pest.

  • Match exact phrase
    The system will only return results for any image that contains the exact input keyword phrase in its properties. There are about 9 images that have the keyword phrase house pest.

  • Use Partial Search (keyword contains)
    Clicking this checkbox will allow the search to not only pick up keywords, but words that have the keyword embedded in them. For example, typing the keyword ant and clicking this checkbox will also pick up the word ants (ant is a part of the word ants). This is a powerful and broad search, because it will also pickup the words plant, mantis, mantle, pantothenic, and so on; something you may not want to have happen. But if you are having trouble finding the exact word you want, this will often provide you with clues as to what direction you want to proceed. Also, you can refine the results by following the directions below.

After you have gotten your search results, you can narrow your search by clicking on the link in "To refine the search results..." at the top of the search results page. You will get a new field to add another keyword. The search function will look through only the first search results, and pull out those images that have the added keyword.

Use the Image Detail Page to find keywords that might be useful to you in further searches. Keywords are clickable search links on each detail page, near the bottom. Click on any thumbnail image for its Image Detail Page. You will find a full caption, image magnification and keywords that might be useful in further searches. Keywords are clickable search links on each detail page.

 

Browsing Images

To browse through all the images, click the "Browse All Images" link on the left menu. To browse a category of images, click on one of the category links in the left menu, or use the drop down menu "Image Library" in the top menu bar. You will be presented with 12 thumbnail images per page, and you can adjust the amount of images per page by the drop down menu at the bottom of each page. Here are some of the options available to you on each page when you are browsing thumbnail images:

  • Turn On Large Image Preveiw - This toggle link at the top left provides a larger image and detail information when you mouse over any thumbnail.
  • Slide Show - When you browse a category of images, the slide show link will display larger images, presented one at a time. You can click on an image that is showing and you will go to that image's Image Detail Page. Depending on the number of images on the page, the slide show may be slow to start. The slide show only displays the images on the page, not the entire category.
  • Add to Lightbox - Clicking this icon will add that image to a Lightbox. If you are not logged in, or have yet to register, it will ask for you to log in first.
  • View Detail Image - Click on any thumbnail image in the search results to view a larger image with more detailed information.
  • Images per Page - Use the drop down list to adjust the number of thumbnails appearing one each page. The more images, the longer the page takes to load.

 

Viewing Image Details

Each thumbnail image in the search results can be clicked to view a larger image with a more detailed caption, magnification, keywords, and more. If you want to request a price quote for the image, information on every detail page will allow you to choose the format options you need. You can immediately put an image into the Price Quote Request List by clicking the "Add to Price Quote Request List" button. Here are some of the options available to you on each page when you are using the image detail page:

  •   "Travel Through" - These links at the bottom of the image will let you browse through detail images one at a time.
  • Return to Thumbnail Page - This link sends you back to the thumbnail page you started from
  • Send To Friend - You can send this page to a friend, and add a comment.
  • Add to Lightbox - This link will add that image to a Lightbox. If you are not logged in, it will ask for you to log in first (or to create an account).
  • Bookmark and Share - This lets you send a link of this page to any of several bookmark services.

 

The Lightbox

You must log in or register to use a Lightbox. When you log in, any Lightboxes you have may be accessed from the grey bar below the top menu bar. You can view your Lightbox(es) by clicking on the Lightbox link located on the grey menu bar of every page. A Current Lightbox drop down field will allow you to choose from previously created Lightboxes. You may add up to 30 images to each Lightbox. Upon creation, all Lightboxes are given a number. The Lightbox Manager Link gives you the ability to custom-name each Lightbox. It will also allow you to delete a Lightbox, images and all. Your Lightbox is a place to store your images before requesting a price quote from the site, a place to share your image selection with others, and a place to comment on images that you are considering to submit for a price quote. NOTE: Lightboxes are automatically removed after 150 days.

Elements of the Lightbox

At the top of the Lightbox, there are several options available:

  • Current Lightbox - If you have several Lightboxes, you can use this drop down list to select which one you wish to view.
  • Empty Lightbox - This link will remove all the images in the Lightbox, but will not delete the Lightbox itself.
  • Refresh - If you wish to delete only some images from the Lightbox, you can use the icon "Remove from Lightbox" below those images, then click the Refresh link to make them disappear.
  • Slide Show - This icon presents a slide show of larger images, presented one at a time when 2 or more images are in your lightbox. You can click on an image that is showing and you will go to that images Detail page. Depending on the number of images on the page, the slide show may be slow to start. The slide show only shows the images on the page, not the entire category.
  • Send Lightbox - Use this link to bring up a dialog box that will let you send a link to someone else for this Lightbox.
  • Lightbox Manager - This link will show a page listing all your Lightboxes, the number of images in them, and give you the ability to custom-name each Lightbox. It will also allow you to delete a Lightbox, images and all.

At the bottom of the Lightbox, there are more button options:

  • Select all images - This button will select all images at the click of this button. Useful for selecting all images in the Lightbox if you want to send them all to the Price Quote Request List.
  • De-select all - This button does just the opposite of the above link.
  • Add to price quote request list - Use this button to send your selected images to the Price Quote Request List. You must first fill in the License Format fields below each image before you can do so. Your images will still be retained in your Lightbox, and you may delete or keep them as you see fit.
  • Images per page - Like viewing thumbnails, you can choose the number of images you can view at one time (per page) in the Lightbox by selecting a number in the drop-down menu.

Under each image in the Lightbox, there is one more option:

  • Remove from Lightbox - Use this to remove the image from the Lightbox which you no longer want. Click the refresh link (at the top of the Lightbox) to remove them from view.

NOTE: Lightboxes are automatically removed after 150 days.

 

Bypassing the Lightbox

In order to bypass the Lightbox for a Price Quote Request click on the thumbnail of an image on the search results page. On the 'Image Detail' page you can fill out the Price Quote Request Form and then click on the Add to Price Quote Request List button. Once you approve of the details in the Price Quote Request List you may submit using the Request a Price Quote button. At this time you will be asked to Login to your account. If you do not have an account please create one and submit your request. Please note that the image(s) you have submitted will not be in a saved Lightbox but you have access to your Price Quote Request History in My Account. If you want to create a Lightbox with the the requested Price Quote image(s) you can Login, review your Price Quote Request History (My Account) and add image(s) to a new Lightbox that will be saved after each session when you log in or log out.

 

Price Quote Request Form

In order for us to provide a price, we need to know how the image will be used. We will respond with a price quote by email ASAP (usually the same day or the next business day). Complete this form before adding to the Price Quote Request List.

  • First, check the box(es) under the "Select for Price Quote" heading to select images that you want to receive a price quote.
  • Now in the Price Quote Request choose "Quote 1" from the drop-down list.
  • Then fill in all the other drop-down format menus that show as "--SELECT--"
  • If you want price quotes for more than one image, but for the same use, on subsequent forms select the "Same as Quote 1" from the "Price Quote Request" drop down menu. You will not have to fill in any more fields.
  • If you want a price quote for a second use, select "Quote 2" from the "Price Quote Request" drop-down menu. For price quotes for other images with the same use as "Quote 2" select "Same as Quote 2" from the "Price Quote Request" drop down menu. You will not have to fill in any more fields.
  • Finally, click the "Add to Price Quote Request List" button. This will put the image(s) in the Price Quote Request List. On the "Price Quote Request List" page you may either Continue Browsing and selecting images to put in your Lightbox, or proceed to ask for a price quote request by clicking on the "Request a Price Quote button. You can also access your Price Quote Request List from the top menu bar.

 

Price Quote Request List

After adding images to the Price Quote Request List, you may view them and either remove them or Request a Price Quote for the images. You can access your Request Price Quote List from the menu at the top of every page. In the list, you can remove images, go back to browsing, or finish up by requesting a price quote. When you click the "Request a Price Quote" your list will empty, and the request will be sent to Dennis Kunkel Microscopy, Inc. You will then be sent to your My Account page, showing you the quote you asked for, as well as a list of previous price quote requests, if any. You can print out your request for your records by clicking the print icon under the Action column. The images you requested a price quote on will remain in your Lightbox area until you delete them, or until 150 days pass (Lightboxes are automatically deleted after 150 days).
