My Dropbox Guide

How to view & download photographs sent via Dropbox:

If I have agreed to send you an image (or set of images) it will usually (unless we agree otherwise) be sent as a Dropbox link sent via an e-mail message. This is to reduce the chance of download failures due to the file(s) being larger than your e-mail program can accept.

A Dropbox link is an encrypted link to ensure that only the recipient can view that specific image (or set of images).

Note: You do NOT need a Dropbox account to open the link.

If you click on the link in most e-mail programs it should automatically open the file in your default internet browser. If not, you can copy the link and paste it into the address bar of your internet browser.

Your internet browser will then display the image (or set of images).

If you click on any image it will display it larger (note that this is not the full size of the transferred image).

To save a single image:

The easiest way is to right-click on the image and then choose 'save as' and choose a destination to save the image.

To save a set of images:

The easiest way (instead of saving every individual image) is to choose the 'Download' button on the top-right and when the choices drop-down use 'Direct Download'. This will save the entire set as a Zip file in your 'Downloads' folder. (You will then need a Zip program to extract the images to a folder of your choice).

Image availability:

The link to your images on Dropbox will remain live for one month. Thereafter the link will not work. It is suggested that you download your images as soon as possible after receiving the link. If you lose your images for some reason then please contact me and I will endeavor to try and locate them for resupply, although that cannot be guaranteed.
