The photos you download from Dropbox appear in Google+, when you have installed Google+ on your Android phone and 'Auto Backup' feature is enabled. If you enabled Google+ 'Auto Backup' feature, it will upload any new photos from Camera Roll to Google+. So if you download photos from Dropbox, it saves in your Camera Roll and then upload them to Google+. To prevent an automatic photo upload to Google+, you need to disable "Auto Backup" from Google+ mobile app settings. To do so, Open Google+ app on your mobile phone and tap 'Menu' icon located at the top left on the screen. Select 'Settings' and tap 'Back up & sync'. Switch off the Back up & sync to disable it.

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!!
