    Sorry, bad link copy.

    https://www.dropbox.com/help/16/en


    Looks like you either have to have it in a 'Public' folder or create a link using their 'share' button and related dialogue.

    Yea, I found that, they require a paid subscription now to get a 'Public Folder' . It wasn't obvious to me that that was the only way to do it, but I think it is. The other method, with 'share link' is what I already tried. I have other non-dropbox options which I'll keep using, I was hoping that dropbox could be my sole file/photo sharing app, but it isn't so.

    If you have Dropbox since before August 2012, you should have a public folder and can hotlink from there. If you joined later, you can't use Dropbox as image hoster for forum posts.

    I have to resize the pictures, so its a pain.
    I have an app on the phone, so its helpful, but still a pain.
    SmugMug, or the bucket are easy, they have a choice of what size to share
