this is what I don't understand. Things like full size, 100% crop, what size to post to my facebook page so they look nice. I guess I have a long way to go? It frustrating.

It is frustrating, but it can also be exciting to learn. Keep at it, take it a bit at a time.

The photo was taken by a Canon 7D2. That camera makes photos that are 5486 pixels wide. A full size photo would be that wide, but sprint's jpeg was only 1600 pixels wide. So the photo sprint uploaded was made smaller somewhere along the line presumably by the raw processor that sprint was using.

It might not be your fault. See
https://www.dropbox.co​m ...les-folders/public-folder (external link)

On the other hand, we have this info:
https://www.dropbox.co​m ...ers/share-outside-dropbox (external link)

I have used Dropbox for years and still don't understand it.

Buy RAW convertors that I am familiar with don't resize, they convert to DNG, TIF or JPG. I am puzzled

While the Dropbox Public folder is not public any more, you should still be able to share a file in your Dropbox account by linking to it. The instructions are in the link below. Did you already try that without success?
https://www.dropbox.co​m ...ders/share-file-or-folder (external link)

As for RAW versus JPG files, you should get into your File Explorer (if using Windows) and use it to manipulate your files. If you want to share the RAW file, locate it on your drive. Then Copy it and Paste it into your Dropbox folder. Again, maybe you already tried that... but I don't know.

Pretty much every RAW converter that I have ever used, apart from maybe that god awful RAW Process thing that predated DPP and came with my 300D, allows you to both crop the image, and export the image at just about any pixel dimensions that you want. The crop is usually shown as part of the processing workflow, and you get to see it as a preview within the RAW processing software. Resizing the image is usually done as part of the actual image conversion process as you export the image to it's new RGB format.

I think the issue with the example posted is that it was actually edited in a pixel editing program, so that it retained the existing JPEG artifacts, then was then seriously cropped, then to add even more issues was also resized. This is based on the fact that it seems that a link to the original CR2 file has not yet been successfully produced.

To the OP, I don't know what OS you are using, I use Windows and have always had the Dropbox App installed on my PC. With this all I need to do is open the file manager, (Windows Explorer, or File Explorer as it is in Win 10) and copy the required CR2 file to the Dropbox folder. I would make sure you copy not move the file, you don't want to separate it from the rest of your images. Once it has the green tick to show it has uploaded OK right click it and you get a Dropbox section. Click the copy dropbox link and then open the Link tool on this website, it's under More tools and commands, Named URL on the toolbar to the left of the input window. Select some text to turn into "THE LINK (external link)" highlight it and press make link. If you don't highlight some text it just uses the link text itself to display lie this: https://www.dropbox.co​m ...ddduo55/IMG_2411.CR​2?dl=0 (external link).

This should then take anyone to the Dropbox website where they can then download the image. Be aware that you will see the extracted preview JPEG displayed when you follow the link. If you simply do a right click and save the image you will get that JPEG file, not the original CR2. TO get the CR2 you have to choose the download file option for the file.

I have linked to the same Cr2 file that I used in my original post.

The image uploaded was fullsize, but the jpg not the raw (CR2) file.

from the jpg it appears the focus was missed as the eagles are not sharp at all.

as for uploading the raw file,

login to dropbox, drag the cr2 file into the window and it will upload it. Then select share, copy link and past that link here.

Alan, ACR in Photoshop does not have a resize function. And DxO Optics Pro will only resize to JPEG format, not DNG or TIF.

ACR does permit you to output an RGB file ("Save Image..." in the lower left corner of the ACR window) and includes resizing (Top image).

DxO outputs TIF and permits resizing of that file (Bottom image).

DNGs cannot be resized.

You are quite right. It did not download right for me the first time. Apologies to the OP.

And yes, the eagles are not sharp.
