Simply upload any image file format to Media Lightbox and email a link to these files to your contacts.

There are 2 ways you can upload files on Media Lightbox:

1)      The first is a web based uploader that is incorporated into our online system, and enables you to upload large image files up to 100MB in size.

For example, if you have large image files that you need to send to colleagues in different locations, you won’t have to compress the file to a ZIP or RAR before sending. Just upload your image files to Media Lightbox and email a link.
