How do I delete photos in Drop Box?

Re: delete photos

If you’re looking to delete files from the Dropbox website or the desktop app, you can do so by following the steps outlined here. Please remember that, in general, the Dropbox folder is just like any other folder in your computer, and so deletions would be carried out as as you would in any other folder. 
 
If you are trying to delete them from the mobile app, just:
  1. Locate to the file you want to delete.
  2. Tap on the ellipsis (…) that’s on the right-hand side of the file.
  3. Select delete. 
If you want to select more than one file to delete, tap the option that looks like a tick in a box on the top right-hand side of your screen and select the relevant files. Once you’ve marked the ones you want to remove, either:
  • Android: Tap on the ellipsis on the top-right hand corner of your screen and select delete.
  • iOS: The delete option will appear on the bottom left-hand side - tap it.  
Let me know if you have any other questions!

Yes, it helped to delte one photo at a time. Guess I need to ask another questions. How do you delete duplicates? or How do you delete lots of photos as a group?

Hey there, @CMR2016
 
Initially, please note that, currently, there isn’t a way to automatically locate and delete duplicates on your Dropbox account. If you want to delete multiple files at the same time from the mobile app, were you able to follow the steps I mention above?
 
 
Spoiler
If you want to select more than one file to delete, tap the option that looks like a tick in a box on the top right-hand side of your screen and select the relevant files. Once you’ve marked the ones you want to remove, either:
  • Android: Tap on the ellipsis on the top-right hand corner of your screen and select delete.
  • iOS: The delete option will appear on the bottom left-hand side - tap it.  

If you’re referring to deleting multiple files from the website, you can do this by:

  1. Signing in.
  2. Clicking on Files. 
  3. Locating the files you want to delete. 
  4. Hover over them and select them by clicking on the boxes that appear on the left-hand side of each file. 
  5. Choose Delete that appears as an option on the right-hand side of your screen. 
Finally, if you’re trying to delete files from your desktop app, please remember that your Dropbox folder is just like any other folder on your computer, so you can follow the same process as you would to mass-delete files.
 
I hope this helped clarify a bit more.
