    Making a List with Scran IDs

    The checkout will also accept a list of image IDs. This is useful if you are buying a lot of images.  IDs are shown below images.  They look like this 000-000-183-685-C.  To collect your IDs in a text file, highlight each ID and use copy and paste into your favourite note or word processing application.  Put a comma and space between each.  When you are ready, find the the first image, go to checkout and then copy and paste in your list to the Add Images field eg 000-000-183-685-C, 000-000-183-639-C...  The system will find all the images and add them.
