Searching the Image Gallery
Once you have logged in, you will have the choice of three Search methods. You can also go to Search page from the navigation bar at the top of the page.
Use the Look for box to define the specific details of your search. This can be the name of the artist, the title of the piece or words that describe concepts. You can use several words in the same search.
The search engine is not case sensitive so it does not matter if you use uppercase or lowercase, or both.
You can use the optional drop down menus for Artist Culture, Artistic field and Medium to further refine your search.
If you leave the Look for box empty, your search will give you all the images of the selected type.

Ordering and paying for reproduction rights and/or scans
As you choose the images, place each item into My Quote Basket. You can do this by clicking on the shopping trolley icon or the Add to Basket button.
You will be asked to choose whether you require the reproduction rights alone or whether you wish to order a scan as well. The reproduction details can be edited for each item in the My Quote Basket
My Quote Basket shows all the items you have selected. You can remove an item from My Quote Basket at any time.
When you want to proceed with obtaining a quote, click the Quote My Basket button and follow the prompts to enter details of how the work will be reproduced. Once completed your request will be sent to Viscopy, who will provide you with a quote within 2 business days. In some instances we may request additional information from you. You will be sent email notification once your request has been quoted. Follow the prompts to accept the quotation and either pay online securely with a credit card, or charge the fee to your account (by prior arrangement with Viscopy).

Lightboxes allow you to manage your images before you decide to submit a request for their use. The lightbox feature is popular with designers and advertising agencies and other users with diverse approval cycles and time critical workflows
You can organise your selections into groups (lightboxes) and give each lightbox a name. You can create multiple lightboxes and add or remove items from each collection.
Each lightbox can be emailed to other people for information, discussion or review. The recipients will not need a username and password to open the lightbox. When you are satisfied with your selection you can transfer the items to My Quote Basket.
