Hi, I am trying to upload a big folder of pictures to share. Doesn't seem to be an option for people to do a search. For example if I only wanted to see pictures with a specific name, how could they do a search to see those. Thanks for your help in advance!

Hi @jasongitar, and thanks for your post. 

 

To clarify, do you wish to search specific images based on their filename, or for the people you share them with to be able to search them instead? If the latter, how are you sharing this folder with them? Via email or via shared link?

 

Also, what’s the Dropbox platform you (or they) are using? 

 

Let me know.
