No, if the image will be used in the same communication/post to be shared once but across varying social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc.) then you need only one download. If you want to use the image again for another reason, e.g. a report or another unrelated social media post, please re-download the image, stating the new intended use.
Overlays such as text or logos may be applied, but NOT direct image editing such as colour manipulation or extreme cropping, unless direct permission has been granted by the content owner or Wildscreen.
By simply overlaying ‘© Authors name’ on the image, by referencing the photographer above or below the photo in text, or on social media by using the camera emoji followed by the photographers name or social media handle (📷: Author)
Each file must be deleted after one time use, and must NOT be stored locally for use at a later date or a seperate communication.

No. Files may only be used by the account holder. However your colleague can create their own Wildscreen Exchange account if they work within the same organisation. You may share the Wildscreen Exchange webpage link with colleagues, or a comping image.
Lightbox is basically a collection of your favourite images. You can explore the Wildscreen Exchange library and ‘Add to lightbox’ any image you really like and you feel may be useful in an upcoming project. These files can then be viewed side by side under ‘Lightbox’, found next to ‘My account’. The files will remain stored in your lightbox, even if you sign in and out of your account.
No. But you can easily create an order from within your lightbox, by selecting ‘Add all files to order’, or by selecting ‘Add to order’ on individual images.
In your lightbox, select ‘Add all files to order’, or select ‘Add to order’ on individual images. Then proceed as you would a normal order.
Comping images are low-resolution images with a watermark used for illustrative purposes, such as draft presentations and documents, allowing you to trial a number of images before selecting and downloading the higher resolution image for the finished product. Comping images can be downloaded instantly without completing the normal order steps, but are not intended for use in any finished project.
Comping images are useful for trial layouts or drafts of projects with expected edits, or those you wish to circulate internally within your organisation for sampling purposes, proofing or feedback.
Yes, they are low resolution with a large watermark.
