I have a file on Dropbox below and when I change the link to dl.dropboxusercontent.com it doesn't work. Are there other formats for file sharing links?

Hi @timelesstrials, thanks for messaging the Community!

In general, we don't recommend using this method to preview files on the site.

Instead, you can change the shared link dl=0 to raw=1 for the file to preview.

If you need any more details, feel free to message back!

I tried changing to raw=1 but it still doesn't work. dl.dropboxusercontent.com is the only way Shopify will accept Dropbox links for image transfer. Not sure why this link structure is not working.

The dl.dropboxusercontent.com isn't meant to be used for previewing links directly, the raw=1 method is the only official way that files could be previewed.

If Shopify is unable to use the raw=1 link, you could try contacting them directly to see if they can allow this on their site.
