Hey there @LDom,

Can you let me know a bit more info about what you would like to do? For example, do you have the Dropbox app installed on your mobile? How are you trying to upload the photos to Dropbox right now?

Also, please let me know the OS of your mobile device.

Let me know - Thanks!

Hi; what I would like to do is click on a photo in a text message and upload it to drop box WITHOUT having to enter an email, name or group.

See pictures attached;

  1. Picture in text message
  2. After clicking icon lower left corner
  3. After clicking dropbox icon

So I tried to link the photo (noted in #1,2,3 above) but the "drag photos/files here" didn't work.  I also tried to link the shared folder with the photo - nope that didn't work either....

Thanks for your help!

Hey @LDom,

Unfortunately I wasn't able to see any screenshots in your reply. Can you try and add them in your reply by using either of the highlights options below:

Can you just open from the shared link - the pictures are too large to attach the way you have asked.

Hey @LDom,

Thanks a lot for that! I was able to view the screenshots through the link.

When you click that share icon in the bottom left corner of the screen, from the bottom row of options can you scroll to the right to view some more options? You should see an option to "Save/Copy to Dropbox" instead.

The small box with the upward arrow you see in the bottom left corner is a sharing icon. So when you then click the Dropbox option afterwards, it is requesting you to add information to not only upload but share the file too.

Let me know what you find - Thanks!
