Are you sure you mean iPhoto and not Photos? If you really mean iPhoto then you probably have to upgrade to Photos. Just drag your photos from Dropbox to the Photos window to import them. Let me know if you need help...

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
