If you scroll over a thumb, you can add that image to your ‘Personal Box’ by clicking on the icon directly beneath the thumb.

Thereafter, you may continue to add other images to that particular or image(s) of items or objects in the ‘Personal Box’, or delete it or from it depending on your needs.
The other way is to click on the image itself, which will bring up the image on your screen to the permitted size. You will see to the lower left of the image the same icon and the words “add to ‘Personal’ or ‘exclusive’ Box.” Click on this and the same dropdown box will come up and simply repeat the process as stated above.
