URL directly of a file in Dropbox

Level 4

I'm looking for a way to get a URL directly to a file stored on Dropbox. I know you can get a sharing file, but what I want is a URL that does not include any of the Dropbox collaboration stuff.

IOW, if it's a PNG image, I'm looking for a URL that can enable me to embed or display the PNG on a website. If it's a PDF file, I should be able to embed the file on a website.

Is this possible?

Change the ?dl=0 at the end of the share link to ?raw=1.
