December 2016 - From Dropbox: We’ll soon be ending support for the Public folder. Dropbox Basic users will be able to use the Public folder until March 15, 2017.
In a dropbox public folder right click on a file, select dropbox, select "copy public link".
If I edit this image in the Dropbox folder on my computer, this image is automatically updated.
Please note: New Dropbox accounts created after October 4, 2012 no longer have a Public folder. Don't worry! Every account created prior to this date will still have a Public folder. If you would like to enable a Public folder on a new account, see the instructions
