File permissions in shared folders

I have a folder which contains copyrighted photos.  I want to allow a potential client to access these as VIEW ONLY, without the ability to download the files.  Can you tell me how to do this please?  BTW - this is in Dropbox Pro.

Re: File permissions in shared folders

Sharing a link or folder with download restrictions is not a feature today. However, this is a known request for several industries.

 

For now you could watermark images and embed copyright info in the image metadata.

It is absolutely crazy that this is not a feeature. It is a MUST for photographers, allowing people to preview photos.

I agree this is unacceptable to not have as a feature. I will have to look somewhere else and probably have to cancel my dropbox plan. Sad.
