With the Google Drive announcement this week, Dropbox isn’t going to be quite.They already launched a beta in February that enabled automatic uploads of your pictures and video from your Android phone. Today Dropbox has armored to allowed automatic upload from just about any camera, tablet, SD card or smartphone — pretty much anything that takes photos or videos! Plus, you can view your uploaded pictures on the web from our spiffy new Photos page!
Getting pictures off your camera has always been a huge pain. So Dropbox team has burned their head down and worked to ensure that automatic upload would play nicely with anything that might have a photo or video on it. With the newest version for Mac or Windows, you can just plug your camera, phone, or SD card into your computer and with a few clicks of the mouse all your photos and videos are in your Dropbox!
Automatic uploading from the desktop is designed to work perfectly with the Dropbox Android app. Your photos are copied from your camera to your Dropbox and uploaded, in full-quality and at their original size, to your private Camera Uploads folder. As your photos upload, you can access them from anywhere and move and share them as you see fit.
As with the Android beta version, Dropbox is giving you the opportunity to grab an additional 3GB of storage for free (a total of 5GB). They will give you an additional 500MB for your first upload of photos or video, and then for each 500MB you upload, you will get an additional 500MB up to a total of 3GB
