I usually don't share folders of pictures because people generally don't want to fill up their space with someone else's pictures. I sent links to folders instead. When you view the folder of pictures in your browser, you can go to a full screen mode, but you have to manually click or right-arrow or swipe through them - I like the option for automatic advance. In Chrome on a PC with Windows, the pictures constantly get resized after the initial display, which makes for an very clunky and abrupt transition that is hard to watch. When video files are encountered in the same folder, Dropbox goes out of full-screen mode and you manually have to run the video and select full screen mode. Advancing to the next file, pictures are displayed out of full screen mode. Lots of button pushing and not a good user experience. Contrast this with Windows Photos app. You can select the first photo in the folder, choose "slide show", and then all photos and videos in the folder are displayed in sequence with smooth transitions. If viewing my own pictures, that's what I use. If someone else receives a link to a Dropbox folder, they cannot use the Windows Photo app (or a comparable app in a different OS) without a full download of all the pictures. If they are using a phone and the Dropbox app, they can swipe through the folder ok and manually run any videos. If they are using a PC and browser, they are forced to endure a lot of resizing and button pushing and aren't likely to view the whole thing. In the past, the dropbox.com had a good slide show feature that worked smoothly, now it's gone. Hope this helps. Chrome Version 71.0.3578.98 Windows 10 Home version 1803

Viewing a folder of photos as a slide show is a basic feature which was previously available in Dropbox but has been removed. In my view this is a fundamental capability. I would like to send a link to others to let them view files easily without clicking/swiping on every shot and without downloading all the files. I don't get it. Slide shows worked very well before.
