I have solved these problems now.
Is quite simple to upload slideshows to dropbox on the Mac.
Be in the slideshow, just press 'Export' (for misunderstandings that are irrelevant now I was reluctant tell it to do that) and it gives you the choice where to export including Dropbox. Tell it to do that, and it uploads them in a number of minutes. That was all.
I just hadn't found instructions saying that somehow.

When you say is 'a way to organise your photos on Mac', it is surprisingly intelligent program, I am finding, that turns a fairly ornery slide sequence into a more dynamic and interesting presentation, with display effects, music etc. This is above all desirable when you want to share it, hardly just for oneself. So having organised a few shows like this the way wanted, I wanted to share that already created thing via dropbox.
So I understand you are telling me I can't do that, I have to load the raw photos into dropbox and then change them into a slideshow with a dropbox routine.
That partly corresponds with my experience. I was unable to see from Dropbox uploading routine the slideshows I have created, working in the manner I indicated in my first post. Also I have tried to have dropbox and Mac photos up on split screen and drag-and-drop. But what to drag-and-drop? It would be natural to highlight the item on the list of albums and drag-and-drop that. But that only drops the title, and I'm told the file has no content.
For extra confusion, I have managed to create in Mac and send to friends via dropbox one slideshow with fancy effects. I don't remember how though, and I think I did it in my iPad. I am wondering whether the reason one worked and the one I'm trying now doesn't is that in the first use the same title in my original photo file us in the slideshow, in the second case I used the different titles for the album and the slideshow.
It has become rather difficult for me to look at Photos on my iPad, it has gone rather unstable.
Among the things I read on the web on the subject one said that Apple doesn't particularly want people to use dropbox, but would like us to use its own AirDrop and that Dropbox hasn't been very on the ball in reacting. Since my present correspondentds all have iPhones and iPads, it looks like I shall have to conform and use airdrop.

Hi. I have used Dropbox from iPad not very intensively just putting up a series of photos for family and friends now and then over the last few years. Now I have started using it with my Mac Photos. I have it up at the top of this screen and it is half evident what to do, at least enough for me to find a way. I click upload, this leads to all my Mac files, I go to Photos, and I see a layout similar to that when I open Photos in Mac. I see my albums for example. I haven't found yet a way if there is one of uploading an album directly, but I hope and one and uploaded all the photos in it, after which I as this would result in a mess if I leave it like that, collected the lot all up and put them in a folder. Perhaps this procedure can be improved but that's not my main question at the moment which is: I want to upload slideshows that I have prepared in Mac. I said " I see a layout similar to that when I open Photos in Mac " - it's similar but not identical. In Mac Photos beneath my albums in the bar on the left, I see a section called "Projects" which is where my slide shows have gone. But when I access in the way I explained above via from dropbox, this section does not appear! So I have stuff ready, and people ready to receive it, but don't know how to get it to them, I hope somebody can point me to this.
