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.

Project Folders
Our hosting service enables the Site Owner (i.e. the individual who
has created the account) to set user permissions on all folders and
files that have been created within their account. There are 3
types of users, Site Admin, Power Admin and Read-Only users:

Site Admin users have permissions to use every feature. Power
Admin users have permissions to use only the folders and files
in which the Site Admins have granted them access to. Read-Only
users have permission to only download files from folders in which
the Site Admin or Power Admin, have granted them access.
