Sync Dropbox folder with Apple's new Photos App in Yosemite 10.3.3

Sync Dropbox folder with Apple's new Photos App in Yosemite 10.3.3

Dropbox can currently sync and incrementally update the dropbox iphoto folder with iphotos library. Can it do the same with the new photos?

As you are aware, Apple have retired iPhoto and replaced it with their new Photos application.

Unfortunately, import from the new Photos program isn't yet supported.

A workaround posted elsewhere here suggested photos can be exported to Dropbox by means of the export feature in Photos.

Thank you Robert, it's brilliant! I would like to add that after exporting to my folders into Dropbox, they automatically sync to Picasa, which I still use to sort them by folders also, which is not possible in Photo. Then I delete them from my Photo library.

A bit complicated, but it works very well.
