How to enable 'Camera Uploads' in your Dropbox account on iOS device?

Camera uploads can automatically add photos and videos from your camera, phone, or tablet to Dropbox. Your photos and videos are then available and viewable from anywhere in your Dropbox account. 

Here's how you can enable 'Camera Uploads' on iOS device:
  1. Open the Dropbox app.
  2. Choose the Recents tab and tap the gear icon.
  3. Under Settings, select Camera Uploads.
  4. Toggle Camera Uploads on.
You can also choose how camera uploads works on your iOS device:
  1. Uploads Videos: choose if you want to upload photos or both photos and videos into the Camera Uploads folder
  2. Use Cellular Data: choose if camera uploads works when you’re using cellular data. Dropbox won’t upload videos using cellular data.
  3. Use Cellular Data for Videos: if both Upload Videos and Use Cellular Data are toggled on, you have the option to choose if videos are uploaded using cellular data.
  4. Background Uploading: allow camera uploads to finish adding photos to your Dropbox, even if you don't open the Dropbox app. By default, the Dropbox app doesn’t upload files when the app is closed. If you turn on background uploading, Dropbox resumes uploading photos and videos when the app detects a significant change in your device’s location.
Note: Background uploading helps camera uploads work more efficiently; it doesn’t collect your location information in any way.
If you want to disable camera uploads, use the same instructions and toggle Camera upload off.

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!!
