How to backup photos from an Android device to Dropbox?

With an Android smartphone in hand equipped with a decent camera, who can resist clicking photos every now & then. We can't, can you? Well, we guess not. Every now and then we come across something that we wish to capture & without giving a second thought we do capture it. Sometime later when you browse through your photo gallery you find 100s and 100s of photos. What do you do then? Just keep them as it is or would like to backup before any kind of accidental deletion, phone damage happens.

If you ask us, we would certainly back them up on cloud. If you too thinking the same, here is a quick guide on how to backup backup Android photos to Dropbox automatically

1. If you don’t have Dropbox app on your phone, download it from ‘Google Play Store’. Don’t worry about the cost, it is free.

2. If you have an existing account then sign in or else create a new account.

3. During the initial setup, Dropbox will prompt you to setup your automatic photo backups. Choose any of the two options available i.e. upload photos on your data connection and WiFi, or only WiFi.

4. There’s also an option to go ahead and upload your current photos on your device to Dropbox.

5. All of your backed up photos are stored in a ‘Camera Uploads’ folder in your Dropbox account. You can access your account from Dropbox app or from any other browser on any device.

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.
