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

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

If those three acronyms made sense to you, congratulations, you're a designer! Or at least someone who's in the loop. While Dropbox has a commanding presence on mobile and on the desktop, there are some moments when all you have is a web browser. 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.

Dropbox to serve most of its customers from Ireland

Back in December 2012, Dropbox opened its first overseas office in Dublin, Ireland. Fast-forward a couple years, and the company is serving all of its customers outside of North America via Dropbox Ireland. The information was revealed in the cloud company's Terms of Service, with Dropbox saying that it will now serve most of its customers via Ireland, where it has about 100 workers and a far more favorable tax rate. The exception is with customers in the US, Canada, and Mexico.

Dropbox has undergone a series of changes recently, adding support for commenting and better inner office communication.

Dropbox ‘commenting’ feature now available to all users

If you use Dropbox to collaborate a workflow, you’ve probably been left scratching your head now and then. What is your colleague event talking about? Is this the right document for the project they were discussing in the meeting? Typically, that left you firing off emails or tracking them down via chat or stalking their cubicle. Now, you won’t have to be that person. Dropbox is opening up commenting within documents for all, which lets you discuss what’s going on with a particular document or project, all without ever leaving Dropbox.

Dropbox Notes beta arrives as Evernote competitor

Dropbox Notes beta arrives as Evernote competitor

Early this month, some Dropbox users spotted hints of a note-taking service that was in-progress, something that had seemed likely as an eventual product after Dropbox made some tweaks to how it showed up once in the public eye. Now the service has been made official, though it isn't open to the public in general yet: it's called Dropbox Notes, and it is in a private beta. Invitations are going out now, and those interested can sign up to (hopefully) get one.

Office Online gets cosy with Dropbox’s cloud

Office Online gets cosy with Dropbox’s cloud

Dropbox and Microsoft are ramping up their collaboration, building on last year's efforts to bake the cloud into Office on mobile devices with support for the web, too. The new feature means that while working with Office Online, it's possible to access a Dropbox account directly, opening existing documents or saving new ones there. Conversely, if you're logged into Dropbox, it's now even more straightforward to preview a document within the browser.

Dropbox note-taking service discovered in testing

Dropbox note-taking service discovered in testing

It looks like Dropbox is working on a note-taking service that could, perhaps, target Evernote users or those holdouts who want something easier to use than Evernote. It doesn't have an official name, but is referred to as Composer in its URL, and it features a couple references to "Notes". There's nothing official about it yet, but the page where it resides -- featuring a couple different ways to log on -- is still live, and rather than the error some users were previously getting, it now has a way to email an invite request.

Dropbox has been introducing new features and tweaks in recent times, and newest among them is an improvement to how documents are previewed when using a Web browser.

Dropbox update improves collaboration with badges, commenting

Dropbox update improves collaboration with badges, commenting

Dropbox has updated its service today, and it has done so with a focus on collaboration in particular, namely how it can make that shared experience better for its users. Dropbox for Business can be used to take Dropbox beyond mere file storing and can be used by workers as a collaborative environment for handling documents and such. If collaborative environments aren't clear and organized, however, they become messy and convoluted quickly, and Dropbox has taken a step to ensure that doesn't happen with two new workflows.

Microsoft baits Dropbox users with 100 GB OneDrive space

Microsoft baits Dropbox users with 100 GB OneDrive space

Inspiration or desperation? Whatever the motivation, Microsoft seems to be kicking its OneDrive campaign into high gear. Last week, it dangled the carrot of 100 GB of free cloud storage for two years in order to get people to sign up for Bing Rewards. This time, it's making a slightly different offer to entice Dropbox users to make the switch. And this time, for those who were irked by the limitations of the previous offer, the free space is available for anyone in the world to claim.
