Saving to My Gallery

My Gallery allows you to collect a group of images. Images are currently saved to My Gallery only for the duration of your session online. For each of the images you have selected, you will see the image, its unique id and its title. The ID will let you order a reproduction of the image later, if you choose.

You may return to Picture Collection Online to search or browse at any time and these items will be saved while you are online.
