Dropbox for F-111 aircrew photos

Instructions from Geoff Ross This is an account that we will all share. This means that you can check back at any time and download as many pictures as you like. It also means that you can potentially delete all the pictures everyone else has uploaded… so be careful!  How to upload pictures: 

1.   Browse to this website: http://www.dropbox.com/ 

2.   Login details: 

      Username: pigaircrew@gmail.com 

      Password: pigzbum 

3.   Once you get logged in, click on the word “Photos"

4.   If you would like people to know which pictures are yours, create a folder with your name 

      eg: Sheps 

5.   Click on the folder you just created 

      - Click the UPLOAD BUTTON 

There are three ways to upload pictures: 

1. Use the mass upload feature 

-    This is by far the easiest. 

-    Click the blue button that says "Choose Files" 

-    You can use the usual hold Ctrl or Shift with the left mouse click to             select up to 50 pictures at a time and select "open” 

-    Then click submit to upload them to the site! 

2.   If that doesn’t work, you can try the “Basic Uploader”. 

-   This one is much slower because you have to select one file at a time like in most email clients. If the first option doesn’t work, I recommend going to the third. 

3.   Install the software package on your computer 

-   Hit cancel, and then go to the “Install” link on the top right of the page. 

-   Install the software package using the same username and password from above 

-   This will create a “sync” folder on your computer where you can just copy all of the files that you want to appear in the Dropbox from the original folder to this sync folder. Within minutes they will all upload to the server automatically! 

***  This means that every picture someone else uploads will also automatically sync to your computer, so be mindful that this can eat up all of your bandwidth and/or hard drive space.
