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.

Upload Video Files via the Media Lightbox Desktop Uploader

To upload video files via our desktop uploader you must first download and install the application. Once you have installed the application simply sign in using the same login credentials as your web based account. However if you are associated with more than one site, a list of all the sites will be displayed. Just select the site you would like to upload your video files to and click on the ‘Select’ button to login.

Once logged in you can drag and drop your video files into the ‘Select files to upload’ section, or alternatively you can click on the ‘Add Files’ button. If you select this option your local file directory will open in a new window. Simply choose the video files that you would like to upload and click on the ‘Open’ button, which will add all of the video files you selected to the ‘Select files to upload’ section.

Now that you have selected the video files you wish to upload, you will need to choose a folder destination to store these files within your Media Lightbox account. All folders you have previously created will be displayed in the right hand pane in the desktop uploader application. However if you wish to upload your video files into a new folder, you can do so by simply clicking on the ‘Add Folder’ button. A new window will appear and you will need to enter a name for the folder. The folder you create will then be displayed in the folder list for selection.

Therefore, when you have selected the folder destination and videos files you wish to upload, the final step is to click on the ‘Upload’ button. Once you click on this option your video files will commence to upload to your Media Lightbox account.
