Downloading photos from Dropbox to iPhoto

New member | Level 2

Trying out Dropbox Business for 2 weeks.

How do I download my photos from Dropbox back to my iPhoto? First I need to edit them.                                                                  Then post them on Facebook

Hi @Catherine H.5

Thanks for creating your first topic. 

If you want to do this via your mobile device, you will need to export the files from Dropbox to your device. 

Here are the steps to export files from the Dropbox mobile app

If you are doing this on your desktop, no need to move the Dropbox files out of the Dropbox folder, you can edit them there. 

Get back to me for any other Dropbox questions. 

Thank you!
