How do I display the information about a foto?

How do I display the information about a foto?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

When viewing a foto in Dropbox for iOS devices i see a circled "i", when I click on it I see information about the photo, e.g. the date when it was taken.

I cannot find that feature on Dropbox for Mac, is it not available, or well hidden?

In the browser, no you cant.

You would need to download it first and then do a CTRL+Click on the file.

You would just access the information for the file as you would any other with CTRL+Click and 'get info'.

Remember that the files on your Mac are real life actual files on your Mac - so treat them as you would any other

Thank you Mark, but I'm afraid I was not precise enough in my question. I meant when I view the photos in my browser, can I access the information there as well? I can't find the "i"
