Hi @value-photos.

I value photos very much myself and I am glad to help!  (nice user name)

The best way to go about this is to use a computer and the Dropbox desktop application, if possible. 

Dragging the pictures out of the local Dropbox folder the desktop app, will delete them from your Dropbox account. Then you can easily save them from your desktop to another location. 

You can also temporarily remove your access from folders others have spaced with you and add them back whenever you have available space. 

Note Give your quota some time to sync the changes. You can always check your account's storage, here.

Let me know if you need any other assistance.

Thank you!

Create a folder on your desktop. Same steps you would take to create a normal folder and multiply select the Dropbox files with your mouse and then drag the files out to this new folder.
