Media Lightbox Quick Tip

Selecting Files

Once logged in, you can select multiple files by clicking and dragging your mouse over them or by holding the ctrl key and clicking on each file. Mac users can hold the cmd key and click to select several files.

File Approval System

Every Media Lightbox account includes the ‘File approval’ feature. The approval system is ideal for requesting approval on a design or prototype from your boss, colleagues or a client.


Need more users, storage or bandwidth? Upgrading your Media Lightbox account is easy. Once logged in, simply visit the upgrade section to change your plan and customize your account to suit your company.

Folder Access Control

Media Lightbox enables you to control folder permissions for single users and custom groups. Site managers could, for example, give the accounts department access to important spreadsheets, whilst the design team have access to design and marketing folders.


Lightboxes are a great way of gathering files that are stored in different folders around your system. By adding them to a lightbox, you have a copy of them in one handy location, ready to send to others.

Back in May I reviewed FXPHD and stated how much I enjoyed the courses they ran and also how much I had learnt from them. In this post I just wanted to say they have announced their new October term.

I’d highly recommend FXPHD for (as their tagline says) taking your VFX knowledge to the next level. Here’s more information about some of the new October term courses and orientation video below:

  • Nuke Zombie Apocalypse: The title is catchy, but Daniel Smith leads the course with strong classes covering useful and common tasks that artists need to know in both 2D and 3D.
  • RED EPIC Grading Workflow: fxphd has had an EPIC M since March 2011and then one of the first EPIC X cameras (#22), so we’re well placed to present solid post workflows.

  • Python Fundamentals for the Pipeline: Bring efficiency to your workflow or facility with some essential programming for the 2D pipeline, taught by Digital Domain’s Michael Morehouse.
