How do I move my photos from my Dropbox account to my laptop?

How do I move all photo files from DropBox onto my Laptop's hard drive so I can store there or on disc?

Re: New to DropBox and Looking to get photo files from DropBox to Laptop

Hey @kwtaper - how are you today?


You can either access your files via a web browser on our website and download them from there or install our desktop app and let is sync until it reports "Up to Date". You can then use Selective Sync to free up space locally on that laptop or even uninstall the application and access your files only via the web.


I hope this helps and let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks!
