    I've got all my Xmas photos in one folder on dropbox on my iPhone. I can email links to individual photos but I want to link the whole folder. Is it possible?

    folders usually need to be compressed before you can e-mail one

    I don't want to email it. I want to enable someone else to access it.

    On your PC, right click on the folder, go to Dropbox and 'Share this Folder'... you can then enter email addresses. When these people sign up/log in to Dropbox, they'll see your folder. I think they'll get write access, too.

    Alternatively, use the Photos folder as follows:

    Dropbox photo galleries allow you to share photos with anyone (even non-Dropbox users). These photos will be presented in a photo gallery that is viewable online.

    Step 1: Make a folder inside the Photos folder, and give it a name (this will be the name of your photo gallery)

    Step 2: Put photos inside the folder you just created.

    That's it! Now you can view and share this photo gallery online by going to http://www.dropbox.com/photos

    If you'd like more help with photo galleries, head here: (Dropbox - What is the Photos folder for? -)

    Happy Dropboxing!

    Note: Linking to galleries is limited to folders within your Photos folder. You also cannot link to the Photos folder itself.

    I can do this on my desktop, but I want to know if it can be done on the iPhone.

    Not as far as I'm aware, possibly with non-official Dropbox apps?
    Nothing to stop you browsing to the Dropbox website in Safari to get the URL
