How do I delete all pictures over 6 months old?

Explorer | Level 3

My pictures are not in albums, they are in dropbox by date and just taking up space.

I use dropbox for the camera upload feature that puts my phone pics directly from my phone to a file on my computer.

I don't ever look at them in dropbox.com and I keep getting notification that I am out of space. Thanks!

You could go dropbox.com and order the folder ascending or descending by date (click on the "modified" label). T hen you could choose photos and delete them.

I prefer to move photos out of the Dropbox folder into folders on my hard drive which frees up dropbox space.  It is easier to manage a large number of files in folders on the computer than to use the selection box for each file at dropbox.com.  But if you are deleting all or almost all images you can use the select all box at the top of the list and then deselect the few you wish to leave in dropbox.
