Dropbox allows you to move photos from one account to another account. To move photos between two accounts, you can use 'Shared folder' feature. Create a shared folder and move your photos by using drag and drop. Sign in to your second account and copy those photos from shared folder to another place. Once the photos are moved out of the shared folder they are no longer accessible from the Dropbox of your first account.

Following are the steps to Move Photos between Two Dropbox Accounts:

  1. Go to https://www.dropbox.com/ & sign in to your first account.
  2. Once you have signed in to your account, create a shared folder and invite your second account.
  3. Manually move files by dragging and dropping them into your newly created shared folder.
  4. Sign out of this account.
  5. Go to https://www.dropbox.com/ & sign in to your second account.
  6. Click "Sharing tab" to accept the shared folder invitation from your first account.
  7. Go back to the "File" browser and find your new shared folder.
  8. Move photos from the shared folder to other places in your Dropbox.

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!!
