Carousel allows you to quickly send photos to friends and family. Today, we’re launching a redesigned sharing view on Carousel web that puts your photos center stage. We’re also introducing the ability to like photos on mobile and web, so the people you care about can engage with the memories you’re sharing. Get ready to spread the love!
Let’s talk about simplicity. When you’re taking a photo, it’s tempting to try to capture everything in a scene. But in reality, that can produce distracting photos that lack a clear subject. A great way to improve your shooting is to stop and think about what the real subject of your photo is, and eliminate any elements that are unnecessary. Let’s jump in and take a look at a few strategies you can use to make that happen.
If you use Carousel or Dropbox on the web for your photos and haven’t checked out our mobile app, there are a bunch of reasons to give it a shot. Maybe you want to carry an entire photo library in your pocket, you’d like new photos to be automatically backed up to your Dropbox, or your phone is running out of space. Maybe all of the above! Whatever it is, Carousel mobile can help you out.
We’ve loved spending the past year building a home for your photos and videos. We couldn’t have done it without your enthusiasm and feedback. Thanks for keeping your memories in Carousel — we’re looking forward to an exciting year ahead!
Carousel is great for viewing your own memories, but it’s also perfect for sharing your photos with others, regardless of whether they use Carousel (or Dropbox). Maybe you have a single shot to send out or a whole batch to show friends and family — either way, it takes just a few taps to create a collection you can share privately with anyone.
If you have a smartphone, chances are you take a lot of photos. You’ve always got a camera at the ready, and there’s no better way to remember a moment or share it with others than snapping a quick photo.
But have you ever pulled out your camera thinking you’ll get a perfect shot, only to be disappointed later by the photo you took? It happens to all of us — it can be tough to take photos that really capture an experience. All too often, you end up with flat photos that you’re not excited to look back on or share with friends later.
Carousel shows you all the memories you’ve stored in Dropbox, from family photos to your best vacation shots. Today, we’re making it easier for you to take control over what you see in your Carousel Timeline. Whether it’s receipts, screenshots, or photos for a home improvement project, you might have folders of photos in your Dropbox that you don’t want to view in Carousel.
We’re introducing a way to exclude folders so you see only the photos you want to see in Carousel. This has been a highly requested feature, so we’re excited to roll it out and hear what you think.
