How to transfer a photo from Dropbox to a website

How to transfer a photo from Dropbox to a website

I do not understand how to add a photo I have taken and use it to attached the image to a website (show my homework).

So I have the image on Dropbox, and I have the other website and on the other website it says attached a image from Dropbox, so I picked the images I wanted and pressed choose but I did not transfer. By the way this is on a iPad, which makes this harder, if you have any advice please reply to this comment .

It seems like the site itself might have an issue with the way it implemented the upload feature using the Dropbox API, if it isn't working correctly.

 

I'd recommend contacting them directly so they can resolve this on their end.

 

In the meantime, you can download the files you need to your machine and then upload from there directly to the site.

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters!

Hi @Amber5, thanks for posting on the Community!

 

It depends on how the website you're referring to has implemented this. Could you let me know if this links directly to your Dropbox account, or asks you to simply upload a file?

 

A screenshot of what you're seeing, hiding any personal details, would be great!

the second image is where i have tapped on the add attachments, and it comes up with Dropbox, where i press it

 

on the last image, it appeares with the Dropbox app and this is where i select my photo/s

however when i finish and press choose it does nothing,i have even went back onto the other website and the images have not been uploaded

 

i have already refreshed my page, about a million time, however there is no difference.

if you can help me on what to do in this situation, i would appreciate it
