Obtain Shared link URLs for multiple files / Export to CSV

Obtain Shared link URLs for multiple files / Export to CSV

New member | Level 1

Like MANY others, we have a requirement to upload multiple new products or product updates to a website via CSV file. 

That upload must include all of the product information ... specifically including the location (URL) of image files to be uploaded.

The website could be any of our three business sites;  it could be Amazon; it could be eBay.  Or it could be a matter of enabling our Clients to download via spreadsheet listing the individual image files relevant to their particular business.

In any case - whilst I can currently cut-n-paste individual URLs for files in a DropBox folder into a spreadsheet, I have to do so ONE AT A TIME.

(And I definitely like the fact that DropBox enables me to password protect the download facility ... and/or place a time limit expiry on the facility)

What I can't do is select one, two, many or all files in a folder and obtain a bulk listing of URLs to be copied into my spreadsheet.

(And - NO! - the URL for the overall Folder is NOT an viable alternative)

PhotoBucket has a very nice facility for this particular capabillity.  (And is the only reason I have to ever consider using PB).

(And - NO - this isn't about enabling websites to embed links on those sites so that the images are constantly served from DropBox)

I have 1,500 images and would love to get the url in an excel/googspreadsheet. 

My end goal: upload 1,500 images to Buffer. I use BulkUpload.com as a bridge, but they need the list of the URLs for each image. As I happen to have them all dropboxed I think there should be a way for me to get each image's url exported or something.

Thanks!

I have 21k images that I have in a folder in my Dropbox Pro Account that I just created. Each image is named after teh upc code that teh product image is. I need a standard link where each image url is that link, with the file name after. i'm tring to upload all of my images to my site so I need the image urls for this.

Currently that's not possible. There is no method to create bulk links and, in my opinion, there likely never will be again. Dropbox simply isn't meant to be a hosting service. Share links are meant for the occasional sharing of files. Evidence of this can be seen with the recently removal of the Public folder, which provided the exact feature you're looking for.

Since they just removed that feature, it's highly unlikely that it will be making a return.

Hi All,

I have near around 15000 images which are already uploaded on DropBox. My problem is to generate public link of all the images I have to manullay click on all the images and then only I can copy the link of each images which is very time consuming and irritating work. So requesting you all to kindly provide the way to generate the link for all the required images in a single click and export it in any doc or excel file.

Hi, surajjha

Here is a very easy and interesting solution for your problem with image links.

We have developed a tool to make image links in bulk. This tool will generate a csv file with image name and image links of individual image.

Hi Andrew

When you uploaded images on the portal, you have got a csv file with public image links in it. 

These links will valid for 7 days from creation. If you want to live these links for infinite time, you can subscribe for a plan which is of $20 and $40 for 50GB and 100GB storage for images respectively.

Please ping me at -

Thanks

Hello:

I have about 150 files that I need to create share links for. I want each file to have its own link, not just share the whole folder. I also don't want commenting turned on.

Is there a fast (or batch) way to do this? Can you somehow repeat the same steps on a whole folder to create each link, turn off commenting and then ideally export the link URL to a text file. 

Thank you

Hey @pfacs, thanks for posting us this question here! 
 
If you’d like to create individual links for these files & disable comments, then you should now be able to do so for one file at a time. If you’re interested in having an option that would allow you to perform actions in bulk, then maybe you could post your thoughts on the Share an Idea section where other Community members could upvote it. 
 
Please let me know here if you’d like me to do so on your behalf & I’ll follow-up with you asap. Let me know & enjoy your weekend until we talk again!
