Dropbox is a cloud storage service which was founded by Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi in 2007. File synchronization is the main function of Dropbox. DropBox has a "Camera Upload" feature that automatically upload the photos and videos from your Android phone to your Dropbox account. You can sync all your photos with DropBox by turning ON the 'Camera Upload' feature. It will automatically sync new photos, videos and files whenever they are detected. Dropbox allows you to work offline and will then sync the new files after connecting to Internet again.

Make sure you have downloaded the latest version of the Dropbox app on your Android phone. During the initial setup, you will be prompted to select your "Camera Upload" settings. It allows you to choose to upload photos and videos using Wi-Fi and/or your cellular data plan. Once you enable the "Camera Upload", then automatically your photos and videos will be uploaded to Camera Upload folder within Dropbox. Now any time you launch Dropbox from your Android phone, it will automatically upload any photos and videos you have taken since last time the app was open.

You can install PicBackMan's Dropbox uploader for Mac from the website and start backing up photos and videos.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
