Using the Basket

The My Basket button will show your basket contents when clicked/tapped

The My Basket button will show your basket contents when clicked/tapped

The Basket feature is used in the same way as using a Shopping Cart on any other website, except you don’t have to pay for the assets at the end!

The Basket tool allows you to browse through the whole site and pull together a collection of assets which can then be downloaded in one go and/or added to a lightbox.

You don’t need to be logged in to use the basket, but if you are not logged in you will not be able to add assets to a lightbox.

The contents of your basket are only available for as long as you are active in Partners, so you cannot add items to your basket and then return at a later date to add more. Your basket is also tied to your internet browser session, so you cannot access the contents of your basket from another computer, and if you close your browser, the contents of your basket will be lost.

How To Add Assets To My Basket

Basket button on an asset

There are many locations where you can add an asset to your basket, including asset libraries, site-wide search, or the asset detail page. Click on the ‘basket’ icon for an asset to add it to your basket. The button will turn green when it is in your basket, so at a glance you can see what you have already added.

If your basket is empty, when you add your first asset to the basket it will automatically open from the left to show you where you can find the list of assets that you have built up. As with the other side menus, click/tap the ‘X’ or click/tap anywhere outside the menu to close it.

To access your basket, click on the ‘basket’ icon which is permanently anchored to the left-hand side of your browser. If there is a red dot on the button, this is showing that you have assets in your basket.

To add more assets to your Basket, simply navigate to other pages or asset libraries and keep adding. There is no limit to how many assets you can add to your Basket.

How To Delete Assets From My Basket

To remove a single asset from My Basket, just click/tap the adjacent ‘X’ button on the asset that you want to remove.

To remove all assets from My Basket, click the ‘Empty basket’ button.
