Sharing Files on Dropbox

Sharing Files on Dropbox


There are times when as your designer you’ll need to send me lots of photos and documents for the development of the content on your website.  Don’t you just hate having to send emails over and over with a bunch of attachments?  Well there is a very easy and quick solution, even for the not so computer savvy client.

Step 1

Create a free Dropbox account here.

Step 2

After signing in, click the Upload button from the very top of the window.


Step 3

A window will appear. Click the Choose File button and then select the file on your computer that you’d like to add to your Dropbox.

Choose as many files as you like, and then click the Start Upload button.

The window will disappear, your files will start uploading, and you’ll be shown a progress indicator. That’s it, you’ve added files to your Dropbox!

Step 4

To share photos and/or documents, click on Photos in the sidebar on the left.

Share An Album: 
Select the album you want to share in the left-hand sidebar.
Click the Share album button in the blue bar at the top of the page.

Share Specific Photos/Documents:
Select the photos and documents you want to add. A blue border and checkmark will appear on each selection.
Click the Share photos or Share files button in the blue bar at the top of the page.

Step 5

Enter the names or email addresses of the people you want to share with and click Send. Or click Get Link to copy the link and paste it anywhere, like in an email to me.
