Default Downloading files from Dropbox?

How do you save files (photos) from Dropbox to your phones Gallery? I follow the prompts in Dropbox to save the file and it seems as though it's saving and transferring but I can't see it in my gallery. I'm running JB if that matters and had not used dropbox before upgrading so I don't know if this was an issue before. Any ideas?

Thanks!

My phone is on the blink so I can't test it but I remember dropbox being a little weird about saving files.

double check the location its saving them to. Then I would try a explorer program like astro or file explorer and navigate to the directory to see if it's there.

You should be able to do it by clicking the down-facing arrow in a circle on the right side of the file or pic you want to download. Then click more, then export, then Save to SD Card. It will then allow you to save it in whatever folder you'd like. I think the Pictures folder will show up in your gallery.

If that's what you're doing... then does the folder you're saving it to have a .nomedia file in it? That would prevent it from showing up in your gallery. Like Crashumbc says, a file explorer app should be able to help you figure it out.

Or... what about just mounting your phone on your computer and transferring it that way... I know that negates the whole cloud advantage, but it would do the trick I guess.

Thumbs up

So simple, thank you! I was selecting the Gallery option not the SD Card option. Everything is good now.
