Transfer Photos from Dropbox to Gallery on my phone

New member | Level 2
Hi all!
Please can someone tell me how to get photos from dropbox back to Gallery?
I click on export but gallery is not one of my options.
Is this a dropbox settings I need to change or is it my phone settings?
Thank you in advance!

Hi @Pamwhite which device are you using? For example, in iOS app you can select the photos > Choose Export > Finally select the option Save Images. The photos are then saved in Camera roll.
