Views.fm - Add Photo Galleries and Comments to Public Shared Dropbox Folders

Published Thursday, March 24, 2011 12:24 PM


If you are a fan of Dropbox than I'm sure you have used it to share pictures from events with friends and family. The only problem is Dropbox only displays pictures in gallery form in the native Pictures folder. So what is a Dropbox fan to do?

This is where Views.fm comes in handy. You go to their website and create an account. You then connect to your Dropbox account, and choose a public and private folder you want to share. If you choose to share it privately only the people you send the invite to will have access. If you share it publicly anyone with the URL can view it. After creating the URL for your new shared folder just copy it and share the URL with your friends and family.

This is a great way to share pictures with people because no only can they view the images, but they can download the full size images something you can't do on services like Facebook. I wish there was a feature that would allow you to download all the images at once, lets say in a zip folder, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that. All in all it's a pretty good service and a great way to make quick and easy photo galleries with full quality downloads.
