A lightbox is a personal collection of assets stored in your library, visible only to you. They are great for working on temporary projects, or for keeping private collections of assets.

Lightbox collections can be shared with other MediaValet users (where the lightbox will appear in their lightboxes tab) or with non-MediaValet users i.e. where the lightbox assets will appear as an online gallery. For more information on this see the following guide

Creating your first Lightbox

1. From the browse screen, click the Lightboxes tab to bring up your list of lightboxes (all shared and personally created lightbox collections will appear here). Then below the Lightboxes tab, click the Add button. This will open the lightbox creation screen.


2. Once the lightbox creation screen opens, enter a name and a description for the lightbox. Once you have entered these details, click the Create button and your new lightbox will be added to your lightbox list. 

Adding Assets to your Lightbox

  1. Go to the browse tab and check off the assets you would like to add to your lightbox
  2. Click Add to Lightbox and select the lightbox you would like to add your assets to
