Excluding folders that contain picture files from being index to Photos

Excluding folders that contain picture files from being index to Photos

Hi 

Is there a way of excluding a folder/folders from being indexed for picture files and then shown in Photos ?

In my case, Dropbox is showing numerous website image files that are stored in my Documents folder and mixing them in with my photos.... Not good ☹️

 

Thanks in advance

No. There was long ago, but Dropbox removed it along with most of the other photo-related features that we had at the time.

Thanks for the reply ....  It's a shame that Dropbox doesn't take photo storage/sharing/organising seriously as there seems to be a gap especially in the Windows platform workspace.
