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.

How to Share Engineer and Architect Files

Once you sign up for a Media Lightbox account, you will be able to create custom folders to store and share your files. By organizing your files into relevant folders, it will make it easier to share your large files with your clients, be it a huge engineering project or simply draft drawings for architecture.

For example, as an architect you could create a separate folder for each of your clients, and only provide your clients permissions to download files from their own folder (saving you time and money!) that they can “read-only”.

To add a new read-only user to your Media Lightbox account, select User Management from the Administration section. There will be an option labelled ‘Add new user’ on this page. Select the link and then follow the instructions below:

·         Select the ‘Read-only User’ from the drop down menu

·         Enter your client’s details – click next

·         Select the folder you want to share by clicking on the folder icon – click next

·         Select the Save & Send Login Details

Creating a new user on Media Lightbox is really that easy. And best of all you can create an unlimited number of read-only users! Media Lightbox makes file share for engineers and architects easy!
