Re: how do I transfer photos from iMac to Dropbox?

Hi

Go to the folder on your iMac that the photos are in
Copy (or move) them to the 'Dropbox' folder if you have installed the software from www.dropbox.com/downloading

Note that this is a local folder on your machine like all others. So, when you copy the photos you are creating a physical copy on your HDD which will use up space. It also will have no link, at all, back to the original location - so changes in one of the folders wont change the files elsewhere.
