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.

Sending Large PDF Files via a Lightbox

A Lightbox is essentially a temporary folder that allows you to place numerous big PDF files from your various folders into a new ‘custom folder’ – a Lightbox.

To send a Lightbox simple click on the Lightbox you wish to send then click on the Send Lightbox lin in the actions menu. A new window will appear with all of your big PDF files attached (only the large PDF files that are associated with the Lightbox that you selected will be attached in the email). Enter a message, a Subject and select the contacts you wish to send the big PDF files to before clicking on the ‘Send Email’ button. Find out more information on how to send large PDF files in a Lightbox.
