I have just downloaded and have sudenly gone dim!!!
How do I specify others to have limited access to my images?
Do they have to be on dropbox as well or not?

YOu have to share the folder the pics are in with them. You do this by going to Sharing, then select the folder and then enter their email address in the box indicated and submit. They get an email to say they have been invited to share the folder and can see its contents

First install dropbox.... assuming you're on windows (although Mac is similar)
In explorer find the Dropbox folder. In that, create a new folder to share (maybe name it after who you are sharing it with)
Copy the photos you want to share into that folder.
Right click on the folder: you have two options
For one off transfer you can get a link to the folder and e-mail it to the other party
Alternatively you can share the folder by putting in other party's e-mail as Matt says above. This gives two way sharing so other party can delete ones they don't like or move pics into sub-folders such as ok/love/hate. This is useful if you have a long-term relationship with party as once set up new files added by either party will be shared (if put in the shared folder)
