Distribute files by tag

Distribute files by tag

Explorer | Level 3

Hi! I've got a large set of images (8000 photos) that I have automatically tagged (the files have metadata containing the names of each person in each photo) using facial recognition, and I now want to distribute them to the correct people. Is it possible in Dropbox to select a set of images that have a given tag and share only these photos using a link?


Thank you in advance!

No, it isnt, sorry. 


Dropbox doesnt look at or acknowledge metadata.
