This tutorial explains how to show Dropbox photos as desktop wallpaper in Windows 10. You will be able to select any folder available in your Dropbox account and set photos from that as desktop wallpaper. Apart from this, you can set the time to automatically change the wallpaper so that you can view all Dropbox photos of that particular folder one after another as desktop wallpaper. You will also be able to set the picture mode. That means you can set if you want to view Dropbox photos as desktop wallpaper in center mode, full screen, four picture montage, mosaic, collage, thumbnail, etc. If you want to view only one Dropbox photo for the time being, then you can also pause the photo slideshow.
To show Dropbox photos as desktop wallpaper in Windows, I am gonna use a free software, named as “John’s Background Switcher“. Using this software, you can connect your Dropbox account with this software, select photo folder available in your Dropbox account, set time to change the wallpaper, picture mode, and leave this software running in the system tray. After that, it automatically shows Dropbox photos as desktop wallpaper on your PC. So without downloading Dropbox photos, you can choose any of your favorite photo folders from Dropbox and then use photos of that folder as desktop wallpaper.
If the images are set to display in center mode, then it automatically fills the rest of the background color with some solid color that matches the image color.

Earlier I thought it would be difficult to set Dropbox photos as desktop wallpaper in Windows. But I am happy to see that this software makes the entire process quite easy. There are many other desktop wallpaper changer software available, but adding Dropbox images to use as desktop wallpaper is not possible with them. Therefore, this software is handy. Just connect Dropbox with this software, select photo folder, change frequency, picture mode, and done.
