Only thing you remember that the DropBox Free account gives you 2 GB of free space to share your files, and I don’t think that you will need more than this.

Below is the help from drop box, about these two folders, and it is enough to understand. And the first one is about Photos;

*Dropbox photo galleries allow you to share photos with anyone (even non-Dropbox users). These photos will be presented in a photo gallery that is viewable online.

Step 1: Make a folder inside the Photos folder, and give it a name (this will be the name of your photo gallery, on your online dropbox account)

Step 2: Put photos inside the folder you just created.

Wait for synchronisation of your photos/file on your online dropbox account (for this you will have to keep your internet connection ON till sync.). That’s it! Now you can view and share this photo gallery online by going to http://www.dropbox.com/photos .

Note: Linking to galleries is limited to folders within your Photos folder. You also cannot link to the Photos folder itself.

*Now another one is about how to use Public folder in Dropbox:

The Public Folder lets you easily share single files in your Dropbox. Any file you put in this folder gets its own Internet link so that you can share it with others– even non-Dropbox users! These links work even if your computer’s turned off (but it should first synchronise your dropped file to your dropbox account on the web).

Step 1: Drop a file into the Public folder.

Step 2: Right-click (your mouse button for Windows & Linux users) / control-click (Mac) on this file, then choose Dropbox > Copy Public Link. This copies the Internet link to your file so that you can paste it somewhere else.

Now your file web link is already made and copied, you just have to past this copied link anywhere you want (please let your file first synchronise into your dropbox account on the internet, if file is bigger in size than it can take more time to sync. So keep your internet connection ON, till sync.).You can now share this file with others just by pasting (press Ctrl+V on your keyboard to past the copied link) the link into e-mails, instant message conversations, blogs, etc.

Now here you are free to remove your sharing files, songs, software etc. just you have to delete your files from your Dropbox folder on your computer. Deleting this shared file will invalid your shared links, and the person downloading your shared materials will not get further download of your file.
