Dropbox Showcase:
show your best work in the best light

Make every interaction an opportunity to impress with Showcase. Share your work easily with partners and clients, track progress and keep tabs on who’s seen what – all in one place.

Make your mark

Make sure your work represents you well. Add your branding to the files you share, so everything feels professionally packaged and uniquely you.

Tell a story they’ll remember

Do more than share files – guide people through your work. Use visual previews, customised layouts and informative captions so they see the right content, with the right context, in the right order.

Get a pulse

Take the guesswork out of engagement. Automatically keep track of who views, downloads and comments on the work you share – so you can be better prepared when you follow up.

And make clients happy too

With Showcase, you get a more fluid workflow that helps build client relationships. Because when they see your vision the way you see your vision, extraordinary things can happen.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do the people I share a showcase with need a Dropbox account?

No, anyone you share a showcase with can view it, even if they don’t have a Dropbox account.

However, to leave comments on your showcase, the people you’ve shared it with will need a Dropbox account and will need to be signed in to that account.

Who can view, download or edit a showcase?

By default, anyone with a link to the showcase can view it. This means that someone you’ve shared a link with could forward it to someone else. However, you can set it so that only people you invite to the showcase can view it. This option is available in the sharing settings.

By default, the people you share a showcase with can download and leave comments on the files in it.

Only the owner (or creator) of a showcase can edit it. However, if you have files from a shared folder in your showcase, anyone you’ve shared that folder with can edit the files in it. The changes would then appear in the showcase.

What’s the difference between a showcase and a folder?

Showcases and folders do similar things, in that they’re ways of packaging (or “bundling”) files in your Dropbox account. You can then share this package with others.

There are three main differences between a showcase and a folder:

  • A folder is simply a list of the files within it, whereas a showcase allows you to curate the files on a branded page with visual previews, custom layouts and file captions
  • You can track activity in a showcase, but not in a folder
  • A file can only exist in a single folder, whereas a file can be included in multiple showcases

There’s also one important similarity: if you edit the files in a showcase or shared folder, recipients will always see the latest version of the file.

What file types can be previewed in a showcase?

Any file type that can be previewed in Dropbox can also be previewed in a showcase.

Video previews won’t play directly on the showcase page – they'll appear as a still image instead. However, if you click this image, a lightbox will open where the video preview can be played.

Does a showcase use Dropbox storage space?

No, a showcase doesn’t use additional Dropbox storage space. Only the files in the showcase use your storage space.
