Can I create a link for others to upload images to?

New member | Level 2

I want to create a link or something that can have people add photos to the file. How do I do this? Do I need a paid account?

Hi there @Emmpathic, welcome to the Dropbox Community!

You can create a file request that you can send to others as a link to upload files to, which places them directly into the chosen folder in your account.

You'll just need to bear in mind the bandwidth limits that will apply to your file request link, which you can find out more info about here. Also, from what you mentioned you currently have a Basic account so those who you send the link to will be able to upload up to 2 GB of images at a time.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions!
