I have a folder on my Dropbox volume that I have saved within it some RAW files from my Sony a6000. Using Pixelmator Photos' files browser, I can retrieve and edit these RAW photos without issue. The problem I'm having is when saving my edited photos (.photo file) back to Dropbox, by pressing the "done" button, I get an error stating "Unable to Save Image, Discard Changes, Choose Location". The RAW file size is 25MB and I have over 5TB of free Dropbox space. What am I missing or not understanding?

Hey there, at this time, Dropbox doesn't support package files, which is a type of file used by Pixelmator Photo (and Pixelmator Pro and other Mac/iOS apps). However, we do plan to make some changes to our file types in order to be more compatible with services like Dropbox in the not too distant future!
