Can I change the preview image shown from a shared link?

I have uploaded a booklet I created and I want to share it with people via text.  My booklet has a lovely cover image.  But when I text the link to someone, it just shows up with a gray square with PDF in the middle and the title underneath.  Is there a way to have the cover page of my booklet show up in the text so it's attactive and people want to click on it?

Thanks!

Hey there @SGamble10,

Unfortunately it's not possible to alter the preview for a shared link at the moment. As I understand this would be a desirable feature for you, I've passed along your feedback to our dev team for review in future Dropbox improvements.

Sorry that I can't be of more help with that, but please do let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks!

I see the response for 2019, hoping theres been an update. 

 

Is there a way to edit the cover photo of a video file, in the link preview?

Hi @sarah1841; thanks for joining the discussion here.

While there has been no changes on this, I found the relevant idea in case you'd like to up-vote it to show your interest.
