Dropbox: How to Enable Automatic Camera Uploads – Technipages

Dropbox’s cloud solution is ideal for saving photos; whether you have an extensive selfie collection or take photos of every dog you meet, Dropbox has your back. Of course, to actually use your cloud storage, you need to upload your pictures to Dropbox.

Now you could choose to upload your pictures to Dropbox manually, but honestly, who has the time? Dropbox has a pretty reliable auto-upload feature. It lets you automatically sync your entire camera roll when you connect a mobile device to your computer.

All you need to do is set this up once on your device. When any mobile device is connected, your camera roll will be automatically synced and backed up. In other words: peace of mind, without having to worry that your precious snapshots might get lost if something happens to your phone, for example. Here’s how to set up automatic camera uploads.

How to Enable Automatic Camera Uploads

To get to the camera upload setting, you need to go through the account settings.  You first need to click on the cogwheel icon at the bottom of the column on the left to get there.

Click on the cogwheel icon to open your settings.

In the settings, click on “account” to open the account settings.

Click on “account” to open the account settings.

In the account settings, click on “Camera upload settings” to get to the right page.

Click on “Camera upload settings” to get to the page to enable automatic camera uploads.

In the Camera Upload settings, click the slider labeled “camera upload” to the “On” position to enable automatic uploads. By default, these uploads only happen over unmetered wifi connections. If you want automatic uploads to happen over a metered connection or over a mobile data connection, you need to enable the “use any connection type” slider.

Enable the “camera upload” slider and optionally the “use any connection slider.”

Automatic uploads take the pain out of ensuring that your photo collection is backed up. By following the steps in this guide, you can enable automatic uploads whenever a mobile camera is plugged in.
