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.

You can access the Upload section, by clicking on Upload Files in the top-right hand of the screen in the Folders section, or by clicking on the Upload tab on the navigation menu.  Here you will have the option of downloading the Media Lightbox Desktop Application to upload files, or directly uploading them to a folder of your choice.  If you decide to do this directly, then you click on the folder you wish to upload to, causing the Upload Files pop-up to appear. You can click on the Select Files button, to explore your computer for files to upload.  Once you have found the files, highlight them and click Open. You can also drag and drop files from your computer directly into the pop-up to upload them.
