    Photos From Dropbox To Ipad 11th Aug 18 at 11:16 PM
    My girlfriend and I were at her nieceís wedding last week. One of the guests has posted 150 photographs of the whole event to Dropbox and given us the link

    At the moment my girlfriend has only got an iPad and an iPhone; I have both plus a PC. My girlfriend would like to create a folder on her iPad where she can download/store the photos for easy viewing. While we both have Dropbox neither of us are quite sure as to itís proper use and how we might access them at a later date

    From what Iíve read the file structure on iPad is different than on a PC in that you just canít create folders. How can we download the photos so they are basically just a click or two away on her iPad

    As always thanks for the advice

    Install the Dropbox app and then download the photos to your camera roll. You can then view them in the Photos app on the iPad.

    Alternately Open the link in safari , and continue to website then you can download from there either a direct download or save to "my dropbox" (since you already have Dropbox)

    You can even link Dropbox to the Files app too assuming you have iOS 11:
