Class Reunion Photo Page Set-up

Class Reunion Photo Page Set-up

In the past I have used Dropbox to post photos for my high school reunion. I was able to set-up a display page available by invitation, post the photos, and make them available for free download. I set it up for no edit or uploads from participants other than myself. More than a decade has passed, I have become less active on Dropbox, and I don't really don't recall what to do to set it up again. 

 

Does anyone have, or is anyone aware of a template that can be used to make a similar set-up?

 

I am currently trying to help a friend to do this (he has 3 TB available, so memory is not an issue). Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

All you need to do is place the photos in a folder and then create a view-only shared link to the folder. Anyone with the link would be able to view and download the photos.

Hi @garr4jc,

 

Welcome to the Dropbox Community Photographers group and thanks for posting! Looks like @Rich has already given you some great advice here so I would love to know if you've managed to get the folder set up and working just like you wanted/had before?

 

Also, it would be great to hear if anyone else in the group has done something similar or uses any other methods to share photos with groups of people like this. Please leave a comment and let us know if you do.

 

Thanks again, and have a great day!

Hello, I'd like to set up a dropbox for a class reunion where everyone can upload their photos. Does such a solution exist? Thank you.

You can use a File Request to allow people to upload files to your account. You could then share a link to the folder they're uploaded to so others can view them.
