I second your idea of adding Lightboxes to the Online Files page .... also think this stat is much more useful than the Views count. Nice blog! K-

Hmmm, I checked a couple of mine and I can't find a place to view lightbox count. Does the button only appear if they are actually added to a light box?

Hi Chanevy,
If you clik on an image in your portfolio,down on the bottom of the page where it says Categories and Collections is where you would see if you image is in someone's lightbox.
if it's not in a lightbox, there's nothing there.

Hi Karen,

Yah, i like knowing about lightboxes on my photos and would like that too. Views are interesting but like you, I think LB count shows the possibility of getting a sale better than views.
In the end however, it comes down to someone pushing the 'buy' button.
Maybe that's why i'm obsessed with LBs. It's one step closer to that buy button.
If was a prolific as others here and had thousands of images online and super regular sales, I probably wouldn't care. lol.

Sounds like my day too. It takes me ages to check all images for any that have been added to lightboxes since a couple of days ago when I last checked. Sometimes I spot an extra addition to a lightbox and within an hour or two the sale arrives. What did I do with my time before this obsession.

I haven't gotten into looking at the lightbox count, but I do find my self checking sales often everyday.

@Daddio Thanks! I am always learning something and I agree, lightbox counts is more useful to me than views. And I spend way too much time on here, too :-)

Is there an easier way to check for lightboxes? Or do you have to click on each image and scroll down?

yah, basically that's it as far as i know.
I fear i may have just personally caused dreamstimes servers to light up with activity.lol

doesn't seem to matter how many times i check my lightboxes, it doesn't make my sales come any faster!
don't spend too much time lookin'

Hey, the start of your day sounds just like mine......especially the Dreamstime part, and I go thru the SAME regiment as you do. :D It is so exciting...that little upper right hand area!!! I wish DT would put a column for lightbox counts along side of the view column.........
