Frequently asked questions

  1. How much free space do I need?

    You're Dropbox will have to have just under 4 gigabytes of free space to fit all curated photos. For liked photos you should have about 4MB of free space per photo. However, you can always move some of the photos out of your Dropbox to free up space again (see number 7).

  2. What happens when my Dropbox is full?

    We will pause your synchronizitation and contact you via email so you can move images you already have out for your Dropbox (see number 7). Your synchronizitation will automatically restart once your Dropbox has at least 300 megabytes of free space.

  3. How long will it take until all photos are synced to my Dropbox?

    We are currently synchronizing 25 photos every 5 minutes. This gives us a daily capacity of 7,200 photos.

  4. Is there a waitlist?

    Yes and no. We are looping through all users synchronizing 25 photos to a users Dropbox before moving on to the next user.

  5. Is there a way to make this go faster?

    Right now there is not. We are considering offering a premium service for a very affordable price in the future. If you are interested in a premium variant hit up @cetteup on Twitter.

  6. Will you send me a newsletter or something?

    No. We will not send you any email apart from the confirmation unless there is a problem.

  7. Will you have access to all files in my Dropbox?

    No. When autorizing with Dropbox you will only be asked to grant us access to an "App folder" (Apps/Stokkr). We can only access files in this folder.

  8. Can I move photos out of the folder in my Dropbox?

    Yes, you can. We use a database to determine which photos you already have, so you are free to move the photos out of the folder they were synced to.

  9. Do the photo's filenames mean anything?

    They do! The filenames contain the photo's ID and the username of the photographer who posted to the image to Unsplash. Let's take a look at an example.

    Filename: id+N7XodRrbzS0++author+alejandroescamilla.jpg
    Photo ID: N7XodRrbzS0
    Photographer: alejandroescamilla

    You can use the ID to find the photo on Unsplash (unsplash.com/photos/the-photo's-id) if you're looking for further information on the photo or want to provide a link to the source. The photographer's username can be used to give credit (which is not required, but always appreciated) and to find the photographer's profile (unsplash.com/@the-photographer's-username).

  10. How can I change my settings or delete my account?

    The confirmation email we sent you after you signed up contains a link to where you can change your settings or delete your account. In case you deleted the email just send an email with/from the email address you registered with to help@stokkr.io.

  11. Is Stokkr based on Splashbox?

    No. Stokkr has no connection to Splashbox.

  12. How is Stokkr different from recipes on IFTTT?

    The recipes on IFTTT are based on the Unsplash RSS feed whereas Stokkr is based on the Unsplash API. The RSS feed only provides the most recent set of 10 images, it does not provide a way to get previous collections. The API however gives us access to all sets of images released in 3 Years of Unplash, totaling more than 1000 images.
