How to use my Dropbox program

  ponytail 15:22 27 Apr 2014

I have Dropbox installed on my laptop but have only used it a couple of times so wondered if someone can advise on how to use it.I believe the people I want to send photos to need to have dropbox on their PC for it to work.

Glad this topic as come up,and thank you all, because only the other day Dropbox download seemed to appear on the W7 computer, probably part of an update(?).

Since then, I have had daily reminders to 'sign-up'. Now need to look at the two links provided for further information, before considering further action, or whether its a really wanted product on the computer?.

She's got to be somewhere, might as well be here as there.

Sorry for the delay in coming back about this post.I need to send these photos to my brother in Wales but he does not have a PC.He has a email address and uses a computer in the liocal library when he needs to.So obviously he cannot put any programs on there but if I could send him the photos he could get them printed.There are about 30 photos which I took when I visited him last May.Any advise appreciated.Thank's again

Print them yourself and post them to him.

Hi bumpkin I had thought of that and will probably do it that way although it would be easier,quicker and cheaper to just send them through drop box.Have just counted them and there are actually 41 photos which will use a lot of photo paper.

Maybe you could put the photos onto a CD, post the CD to your brother, then he could take the CD to a photo shop in town and get them printed from the CD. He wouldn't need to have a computer himself.

Please don't get me wrong but aren't you barking up the wrong tree.

Unless I am very much mistaken, Dropbox is a Site, not a programme. You visit the site, enter the Account Number and Password, and then have access to any of the Photos stored there.

So, all you have to do is to give him the Account's Name and it's Password and he can download as many as he wishes
