Dropbox is a popular cloud storage service that lets you store, share, and access your photos and other files from anywhere. With Dropbox, you can easily create online albums from folders containing photos on your computer.
Albums allow you to organize and showcase photos in a visual gallery format. Creating an album from a Dropbox folder is a simple process that only takes a few steps. The album will update automatically as you add or remove photos from the source folder.
In this comprehensive guide, we will cover everything you need to know about creating photo albums from folders in Dropbox.
First, access the Dropbox website and log in to your account. You can go to www.dropbox.com in any web browser and enter your username and password to log in.
If you don't have a Dropbox account yet, you will need to sign up for one first before you can create an album from a folder. The basic Dropbox plan offers 2GB of free storage space.
After logging in, locate the specific folder in your Dropbox that contains the photos you want to use for your album. You may need to navigate through your Dropbox folders and sub-folders to find it.
The folder can be one you manually uploaded photos to, a camera upload folder, or a synced folder on your computer. As long as the folder contains the photos for your album, it will work.
Click on the folder to open it. You will now see thumbnail previews of all the photos in this folder.
Browse through the photos and select the ones you want to include in your album. You can click on each photo to select it. A blue checkmark will appear on photos as you select them.
You can also select all photos at once by clicking the "Select all" button. Or use Ctrl/Cmd + A on your keyboard to select them.
At the top right of the page, click on the "Create album" button. This will open the album creation window.
Selected photos that you want in your album will be automatically added here. You can add or remove photos in this window if needed.
In the album creation window, enter a name for your album in the "Album name" field.
Choose something descriptive that will help you identify the album and remember what photos it contains.
Next, select who you want to be able to view or edit your album using the visibility and collaboration options.
You can make your album:
Decide who you want to share your album with from your contacts, or get a public link to share.
Once you have given the album a name, set permissions, and added photos, click the "Create album" button at the bottom to actually create it.
The new album will now appear in the Albums tab in your Dropbox. All the photos will be compiled into one gallery.
The album will stay synced with the source folder. Adding photos to the original folder will also add them to your album.
And that's it! By following these simple steps, you can quickly create visual albums of your photos stored on Dropbox.
