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.

A lot of Media Lightbox clients use this feature if they work in a team and  need to get copy or Artwork (Or Video/PPTS etc) approved by one or more people in the team.  Additionally, many freelance designers or architects use Media Lightbox to get approval of designs/artwork or drawings from the end client.

Fill in the short form e.g. enter the project name, a comment and select the approvers from the list of contacts or a group in your Media Lightbox account.  It's that simple!  All appointed 'approvers' are notified via email and it all links back to the Media Lightbox system ensuring that no large files are clogging up the email inbox of your work colleagues or clients.  All Artwork Approval requests are monitored on the Recent Activity page so you can see at a glance any requests pending as well as all completed approval requests.
