How can I do this in dropbox?

How can I do this in dropbox?

Bill C.37
New member | Level 1

First: Getting actual help or talking to a human at dropbox seems impossible. I have a simple question, but can't seem to get tech support.

Second: Here is the question: IMy wife and I recently took a tour with 15 other couples ranging in age from 60's to 80's.  Everyone took lots of photos and we want to share among all of us. Our idea is to have a space where everyone can upload and everyone can download. If I upgrade my basic dropbox to Pro, will this be possible? Or does everyone need to have a dropbox account (most are not tech-savvy, and some cannot afford the account.)

Thats nothing to do with Dropbox.

I'm afraid you need to go to Microsoft and ask for it - you are not going to find it legally (or at least shouldnt!) going to find it via a totally different third party syncing site (i.e. this one, Dropbox).

You have that capability now: share a LINK to a folder and others can view your pictures.

Use FileRequest to let others send you photos even if they do not have a DB account.

To get support the links are at the bottom of every page: www.dropbox.com/support and track at http://Dropbox.zendesk.com.

And no. You upgrading won't give them any space bonus or increase so shared folders won't work.

What would, however, is to use Rich's suggestion to get them uploaded and then Shared Links to send them back out.
