Moving files from one folder to the another

Level 4

Question regarding moving files from one folder to another - I did this by selecting the file and then selecting "move" from the options listed - and selecting the folder where I wanted the file moved. These files were photographs (jpeg files) - by doing it this way - does it change the integrity of the photo??

Hey there @ckottak - welcome to our Community!

To immediately cut to the chase, no, the integrity of your photos won't be amended in any way when moving files around (either via the website or the desktop app). 

If you notice a discrepancy on some of your files when previewing them on  our website though, I'd suggest first trying a different browser or downloading them and opening them locally with the appropriate software. 

I hope this information helps and please let me know if you have any  more questions!

Re: Moving files from one folder to the another

Walter - thanks so much for your reply - 

Can you tell me why the individual looking at the files is seeing the photos with the red band at the bottom of the photo?? This red band has options, i.e., zoom, etc. I'm assuming it is bc she is using "Windows Photo Viewer". I don't see this when i look at the files in dropbox.

I appreciate any guidance.

Thanks for the reply @ckottak!

I'm not really sure I understand to what you're referring to, could you post a screenshot of this so I can get a better view of the matter at hand?

Thanks!

Thanks for the screenshot @ckottak!

This is your Windows Photo Viewer indeed and the red colour theme you see there isn't within our control, in comparison to our website where we are the ones responsible for the previews of the files in question. 

I hope this clears things up a tad and let me know if you have any more questions.

Thanks again so much for you quick response.

Sooo, there is nothing wrong with the file - this is just how she is viewing the file, correct??
