I would like for my screenshot folder in Dropbox to reside under the folder Public if that is possible?

The reason for this is that for some reason this is the only location where linking straight to the image is allowed, and that is needed for embedding images in forums and such.

It is strongly needed feature. From today Dropbox allows direct links only to Public folder. www. to dl. hack is no longer works.

That'd be indeed an useful feature to have.

I added possibility to get direct links to the last version of CloudShot.
It works through dl hack. It still works, I try it on different computers and different browsers.
For example try to open this link https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/f4h9ve48ksiti9r/shot_140523_102907.jpg

I think Dropbox do not like when users embed image links to the forums, etc.
Because it increases the load of the dropbox servers and it costs money for dropbox.

About public folder. Unfortunately I cannot store screenshots to the Public folder. It's restriction by dropbox api.
CloudShot have access only to the Dropbox/Apps/CloudShot folder.
