Using Dropbox for your assets

Proto.io lets you sync your Dropbox account to your Proto.io account to easily have access to your assets. When you update an asset in Dropbox that’s used in a Proto.io project, Proto.io will automatically update your project keeping all of your interactions and animations intact.



Furthermore, this is an easier way to organize your design assets - in folders, in your Dropbox account.

Sharing assets across the team

Dropbox sync enables design teams to keep using the tools they love, like Photoshop and Sketch, while working together in a shared Dropbox.

          

Design teams use Dropbox because it makes working together simple. There's no second guessing on the latest version of a file and anything saved to a shared folder is instantly updated on everyone's devices.
