Personal Light Box
My personal Light Box lets you create a thumbnail page from the public photos. As photographer you can group the photos you took and may be do some cross linking on your profile.

Quick search is a little entry field in the upper left of the website and it allows everyone to locate members quickly. Enter a member id to directly jump to that member's profile. Enter one or some initial characters like "an" and you will see a list of all members where the User Name starts with "an". If your search pattern matches only one entry that profile will be shown. Alternatively you can enter a email address to locate a member. The email address must be entered completely. This is to protect the privacy of our members.

Friends, Colleagues and Favorites
You can establish these relationships to organize relationships to other members and control, what information they can view. Favorite is not a mutual relationship, you just can select another member as such. Friend or Colleague relationship is mutual and bidirectional, it must be requested from the other member. All three types give you a thumbnail gallery for the organization and some management tools. As an extra you can rank each member for sorting and make private annotations on each member, which will help you to keep additional information. Friends are organized in a public list and colleagues are known to the colleagues only. Friends and colleague are allowed to make comments on your profile and they have access to your private photo galleries. In addition, colleagues can view some more information about you.
Idols and Fans
Idols are people you like. You can gather these in a list of Idols. This makes you appear in that persons list of Fans. The Annotation you make will be visible to the person you like in their Fan list. Note that Annotation in other list are private.
