Why can't I delete photos from the viewing window?

I seem to be able to only delete photos from the file list now, but I like to edit my photos from the viewing pane and delete them as I go.

I agree!  I don't know why this changed!  The thumbnails are too small to view AND they are not numbered as they are in the slide show (ie: the viewing window with forward and back arrows).  Bring back the ability to delete photos from the viewing window.

Extremely aggravating. Makes photo management very difficult, especially when I have hundreds of photos in rapid-fire sequence and then want to delete all but a few.

There is _no reason_ why one shouldn't be able to delete a photo while in viewing window/open mode.

It's enough to make me shop online for an alternative to Dropbox.

WHY CANT I DELETE PHOTOS FROM THE VIEW SCREEN??

Please?

Thank you!

I searched community answers for deleting photos.  All of the answers I found referred to the old photos view.  In the new photos view (July 2017), I could not find any way to delete photos. I contacted support and they confirmed it was not possible.  They directed me to use the files view - a terrible way, since you have to work with filenames instead of pictures.

 

Dropbox - this really sucks.  Fix it!

FIX THIS DROPBOX!

I want to clarify my original post - I am referring to accessing dropbox via a web browser.

There is no way to delete pictures from the new Photo view page.  I understand you can click the pictures to show in folder and then delete from there.  However scrolling through thousands of picture files to find a picture you want to delete is extremely inefficient and a waste of time.  Why would dropbox take away this feature?  I hope the dropbox engineering team can do something about this!!!

If they don't bring back the ability to delete pictures from the new photo view page, I will also be looking for an alternative to drop box.  It is ridiculous to have to scroll through thousands of pictures to find the ones you want to delete on the file page instead of as you go on the new photo view page.  I hope the engineering team can fix this!

I agree -need a way to delete photos from the viewing window- overall I like that dropbox backs my stuff up but google photos is much better as a means of vewing picts at a decent size and arrange ..

The 'old' feature where you could EASILY review and delete photos from your timeline was the reason I choose to pay for Dropbox. 

 

Will this feature come back, PLEASE?
