I wanted to take a moment and share some Dropbox basics. I receive quite a few questions about using Dropbox since that's how I share graphic designs with my clients all over the world.
Dropbox is a personal cloud storage service (sometimes referred to as an online backup service) that is frequently used for file sharing and collaboration. The Dropbox application is available for Windows, Macintosh and Linux desktop operating systems. There are also apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, and BlackBerry devices.
The service provides 2 gigabytes (GB) of storage for free and up to 100 GB on various for-fee plans. After installation of the application, a Dropbox folder appears with the user’s other folders. Users can save files to the folder, add new folders, and drag and drop files among folders just as if they were all local. Files in the Dropbox folder can be accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection – the user just has to log in to his account to upload, download and share files.
Here is a link to a quick start video tutorial that may help you get started using Dropbox if you are not super familiar with it yet:
