A friend of mine e-mailed photos to me.  He uses Dropbox.  I transferred them to my Google Drive, but

unfortunately I can’t incorporate them without his permission to do so.  Is there a tutorial on this for me?

Or is it initiated with the private party….and what does he do???

Did you try saving the photos to your own hard drive before uploading them?

That should work. 

Here is a tutorial video – not exactly on point, but it may help.
