Dropbox users can now ask other upload to them directly

Sending out a file or even a folder to others using Dropbox is a breeze. Doing the reverse, collecting files from other people, on the other hand, is a pain. It doesn't have to be and it won't be anymore. Dropbox has introduced a new feature with an amusingly very formal name that solves that problem. Called "File Requests", the new feature lets Dropbox users collect and collate the files, images, videos, and whatnot that they need from as many people required, and all in one single place in their Dropbox home.

Dropbox’s web image preview now supports even PSD, AI, EPS

And usually in those moments, download a large Photoshop PSD file is not only time consuming, it might also be futile since you wouldn't have the proper software to open it. Thank goodness, then, that Dropbox thought of supporting those files out of the, well, box.

Invitations are going out now, and those interested can sign up to (hopefully) get one.
