Setting up your own Personal Account and Lightbox:

If you are visiting for the first time, we invite you to sign-up for your own Personal Account, with your own Username and Password in order to have access to all of the site's Lightbox features.

Please note that in order to activate your New Account the very first time (and in order to protect you from fraudulent enrollments or orders in your name), the site will send a confirmation email to the email address which you provided to us upon initial enrollment, to which you must reply in order to activate your account with us. Should this not appear in your Inbox within a few minutes of enrollment, please check your SPAM folder; thank you.

Once confirmed, your account will be activated and you may proceed with placing your orders and enjoy all the benefits of the site's features.

Please also rest assured that we completely respect your privacy, and as such, have never nor will ever share, exchange, sell, nor reveal the contents of our customer's registration information to anyone.

If you are unsure if you have an account with us, click on the ("My Account") link in the Navigation sidebar on the left, and follow the instructions.

Using your own Lightbox:

Once you have an activated Lightbox account, you may use it to add your selections to it (prior to placing selections in your Shopping Cart), by checking the box "Lightbox" beneath any photos by renowned photographer Franck Avril that are available for sale on this site. Your selections will be placed instantly in your personal Lightbox folder for your future review and purchase selections, as well as for your sharing them with others.

A bonus feature as a registered user is the ability for you to have multiple lightboxes, such that you can rename them to suit your personal needs for ease of future access. Although neither registration nor obtaining a Lightbox is required to view our San Francisco photography and inform yourself about our services, we encourage you to become a registered user of EverydayJourney for your optimized viewing and purchasing experiences.

Search Features / Private Galleries:

At the top of this form and all other pages are ("Basic Search") and ("Advanced Search") features within our site; as well as log-in for any ("Private Galleries") which we may have arranged for you (such as to review a customized Dahlia calendar, custom print job, Real Estate photographs, Nature, or other extensive San Francisco shoot).

Gallery-Viewing Experience:

Lastly, a brief word about our thumbnail Galleries: While there is a default of 30 images of San Francisco real estate, nature scenery and the like displayed per page (see box at lowermost RH side of each Gallery), you can define your own custom-view by typing-in your preferred amount of images per page to make your viewing experience fit your needs better.

Once you click on a gallery's or Lightbox's thumbnail, you will be able to view a larger version of each photograph, as well as further information and key search-text to identify similar photos or categories to your selections, as well as additional product styles available and their corresponding pricelists.

Selections can be e-mailed to me directly from your Lightbox, should you have any questions about a specific photograph shot in the Bay Area or elsewhere; or you can also share the contents of your selections with others via your "My Lightbox" features.

Our FAQ's give you further details on how to best use this site, or you can use the Contact form to send us any requests or specific inquiries.

Thank you for your interest and support, and welcome back!

Franck (Avril)
