How do I share photos with other people?

« Back to Help Center

Easily share photos and videos right from the Dropbox website. Share a link to a single photo or an entire album you've created, such as for a special event. Anyone who receives the link can take a look, even if they don't have a Dropbox account.

Share individual photos and videos

  1. After signing in, click on Photos in the sidebar on the left.
  2. Select the photos and videos you want to add. A blue border and checkmark will appear on each selection.
  3. Click the Share photos or Share files button in the blue bar at the top of the page. Alternatively, right-click on one of the selected items and choose Share from the pop-up menu.
  4. 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.

If you've created an album, you can quickly share it with anyone as well.
