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

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

  2. Plug your camera, phone, or tablet into your computer. You'll be prompted to upload photos to your Dropbox folder.
  3. Select Import Pictures and Videos using Dropbox.
If you previously decided not to use camera uploads with your device, you can enable it by following these steps:
  1. Click the Dropbox icon in your menu bar.
  2. Click the gear icon.
  3. Choose Preferences…
  4. Under Import, check the box next to Enable camera uploads for. You can choose to enable camera uploads for photos and videos, or only photos.
Your photos will automatically save to the Camera Uploads folder in your Dropbox account.
  • Android devices: Select Connect as a Disk Drive from the status bar
  • iOS devices: Unlock the screen to allow camera uploads to continue

Dave testimonial PicBackMan was an answer to many a prayer. How can I get this MASSIVE collection of photos onto a service that cripples uploading? PicBackMan. I uploaded approximately 85,000 photos in less than a month. It would have taken me close to a year to get all of those photos where they needed to go. Nothing short of brilliant. - Dave
