Lightbox is a special type of collection that provides easy access to assets. You can quickly access Lightbox to add or delete assets. It serves as your personal image gallery.
If you are an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Assets user, Lightbox is automatically created when you first log in to the application. It is exclusive to your login. Other users cannot access your Lightbox.
Although Lightbox resembles a collection, you can't perform all the actions that you normally perform on collections. For example, you can't delete, share, or view settings for a Lightbox. In addition, you can't add it to other collections. However, you can edit the assets inside a lightbox.
