How can I export images from Dropbox to Facebook?

Level 2

I sell LuLaRoe and all of my inventory photos are on Dropbox.  If I want to post a photo from Dropbox, is there a way to do that without first going into Dropbox on my phone and saving it into my Camera Roll?  For instance - when I click to add a photo - my option is Camera Roll - is there a way to have Dropbox as an option and select pictures directly from there?  I can do it on my laptop, but can't figure it out on my phone!

Re: Dropbox to Facebook

Hi Janice, while it isn’t possible for the Facebook app to import directly from Dropbox, you can do the opposite and export photos directly from your Dropbox app into the Facebook app using the following steps:
- Open the file you’d like to export in the Dropbox app
- Tap the ellipsis (..) on the top-right and select “Export”. You will now see two rows of apps.
- In the lower row, tap “Open In…” - this will show you a list of apps to export this file to, and Facebook should be on the list. 
Hope this helps!
